So let me get this right: We have a club owner who comes here and tells us what he needs on his flyers for his club.

Then we turn around and say: no, that’s not what you need. You need your flyers the way we did them! We have many years of design experience, therefore we know much better than you what you need for your club.

Really?

Chris, you need to look at the big picture here. I am not saying that was is he saying is wrong, but…Things are more complicated, there are more levels, depends on culture, club, music, people etc..

For example compare this club, who has nothing to offer other just a night out, http://clubprana.com/spring-break-foam-party-night/

and this poster wich has top notch label music and top line up at a modest club in ibiza (DC 10) http://pushvisual.com/main/portfolio_page/jamie-jones-paradise/

I am very grateful for biggest thing in this world, DIVERSITY.

im a customer im getting a lil frustrated , sometimes i dont even want to come on to GR i have to go through like 10 pages b4 i see a flyer that is suitable for a real club

Your problem here is that envato lowered the standards for flyer category, and authors copy some original work they see here that’s why you have to go trough 10 pages to find something. And another thing I dont get why you take everything for granted, like you want everything to be easy, just reserve yourself some time to search for your right flyer, I am sure there are a lot of real club flyers for you here, you also have the search function.

The designer should not guess wich every one neeeds, again Diversity, and this is just a template that costs 6$ less than a coffe in some countries, and a good thing to do is ask or pay someone with skills to edit your template according to your needs. And make it perfect.

I honestly just think Envato needs to implement a portfolio cleaning function. Items that don’t sell well after 1 year need to be deleted to make room for new ones so that customers don’t have to go through 10 pages of items that aren’t the best the author has to give.

Something Envato needs to think about if it cares about its customers. Cause we all know how much Authors love deleting items that don’t sell well :)

I still love you Envato, you my baby.

I don’t think that is a good ideea, if you remove old items you will still have first 60 pages of bad items (i was nice) .

I know what is a goood ideea, to STOP accepting all this * items. Raise the standards like in the good days.

And maybe some restrictions, 2 or 3 items per/week. Maybe then, they will focus on quality not quantity.

Alright, I will give my 2 cents on this topic.

First of all I don’t think we are in the 2000’s anymore with a model girl and speakers and shots of tequila and so on, and you don’t need all that info in the flyer like drink specials, you need place, line up, event name, and date, and any extra specific to the event important info. Simple is better.

Of course this is just my opinion, but a festival flyer (poster now wich is rare here) needs to DRAW ATTENTION, no one will read your drink special if your flyer does not draw attention. It needs to hold the viewer attention and draw him into it, You need to be different, You have to make their eyes leak not release a manuscript.

As for the club flyers, depends on the quality of the party, club and people that come. Depends on the eye, and if the club doesn’t focus on the line up, the music or theme party, than you can’t ask for nothing special.

The word client alone (of an agency in this case) implies a resell. But that’s my only 2 cents.

Typically an agency should buy the extended license, unless they are buying the items for themselfs. There is no agreement, no special treatment. It’s just a market.

Again, no one should be offended, it is your work after all, if you are not proud of it then it is your problem. I have the right to my opinion, I have the right to criticize, you should take a critic and learn from it, I am not saying that I am better or something.

Final point, this is a competing marketplace, I hate to see authors with 200 items all bad, and learned nothing from that experience.

Did not quite understand what you mean. But some time which is spoken here in the forum, that the criteria are not equal between the reviewers. Some accept low quality jobs (personal option).

I was being sarcastic. So you are saying that they have a personal option to accept bad designs?

It is meaningless to fill a page about every 6 months about the quality of the print templates that are being accepted on this marketplace so I will keep it short this time.

Let’s give a round of applause for our reviewers, and their proud work. NO LINKS GIVEN

P.S No one should be offended about their own work. It would be absurd.
