blacc360,

Okay I see the flyer now at its core. By using a different model I can more clearly tell what the actual included elements in this design will be. This should work as a flyer.

Just looking at it a little more, I see you took SomethingDesign’s advice for the shadow under the tree/vine element. Just in my own personal taste I’d decrease the shadow’s distance a little.

And out of curiosity… I see there is a circular set of line details radiating out from this model’s navel/stomach area that I did not see on the other model. Are the models you are using for this design highly photo-maniuplated, or are you kind of playing with elements for your previews. I like what I see here. It’s customized to the model. But not all models are the same. Just curious of your process here, and what purchasers can expect.

blacc360,

It seems much of this flyer’s design relies heavily on the form, shape and position of the model. It’s highly custom because of this. This makes me wonder whether or not you will be providing your purchasers with the model photo or not. If not, the elaborate effects you have pulled off with the model need to be translatable to any other model or image someone wants to replace the one seen here with.

In effect this would mean that you would need to have present Photoshop actions or a smart object(s) with filters and adjustment layers that enable one to get the whispy smoke/water effect on her arm, the model’s off-centered white outline, the “Funky Chaser” logo under her bikini, the stripe effects and all. All of these must be accessible and editable to the purchaser for them to use with their own model; if you do not provide this model.

It’s very original and custom work. I like it for what it is. If you have the permission to sell the image of the model with your flyer I’d approve. If you have preset Photoshop actions or filters/adjustment layers for me to pull of the same effects I see here with any model I decide to use I’d approve your flyer.

If none of the above are applicable to this flyer; I would not approve because the purchaser would not be able to attain what they were presented with in this flyer.

Hopefully that helps.

mihaimcm,

Hah hah hah hah!

This is a very good flyer. I like it when people try to challenge things. We all know that the word “Funk” includes no “c.” Hah.

Also, do I see censor bars over the model? Or are those elements of her clothing?

Maybe Graphic River should try opening up an “X-Rated” area of their site?

Anyhow, I see nothing wrong with nudity in art, but if Graphic River does, by all means follow their rules and regulations. If a purchaser is open-minded enough to see the many uses of your flyer, and need to use a nude model on it, they should be able to see its application without the need of you using a nude model (if the one you used here is even nude).

Oh and just one thing about the larger image preview of the flyer, the model’s size/positioning/pose is causing her to cover up too much of the text you have behind her. It’s completely indiscernible. You’ll have to change the model, or aspects of how she is presented, to make that upper text really work with the entire design. Just being open-minded about it, you may also have luck changing that upper text in some way, if the model is positioned where you wish her to be.

danielarto,

Hmm… I think something may be up with the lower text. It’s not a lot of information, yet it’s taking up half of the flyer. I would suggest making the lower text/details significantly smaller in font size.

The styling for “Girlsnight” is very similar to the styling of all of the rest of the text on the flyer. My suggestion would be to try something different with this particular “lead text.”

One of the ideas I see going on with this flyer is a “trinity” concept. You’ve got 3 main models or elements positioned around a triangular design. This is very cool. I’d personally like to see you integrate more focus on this trinity aspect of your design. Many concerts and events use 3 leading artists and/or dj’s in their promotions.

Keep working on it. I’m curious to see where it goes.

snk-artwork,

Just a quick idea… Perhaps changing the daytime beach theme into a sunset beach theme may make this flyer look extremely different from what’s out there? But that would be a drastic change; especially where colors and backgrounds are concerned.

More subtle changes that could be made to make this look different could be element positioning? Perhaps allow the elements to flow in this manner from top to bottom: Club Name Presents>Cool Party>Model & Exploding Background Elements>Lower Text Area

You may be able to achieve a cool “magazine” kind of look to it by allowing the model’s layer to overlap a portion of the main “Cool Party” text above her. A quicker solution than creating a sunset theme.

thomask3r,

I kind of like what you’ve got going here. The font you are using is a condensed font; it looks like you are using it with a certain point of kerning. I wonder what the font looks with its default kerning (if this isn’t its default).

I would say adding two things could improve the look of it.

1. A black to transparent gradient from the bottom up, ending at the bottom of the lower text area (or right underneath “First Drink Free.”

2. The inclusion of all white social media icons just above the website address? Perhaps distanced closely together to keep the feel of the condensed font you are using?

The black gradient will help make the website address and social media icons clearly visible. You may even want to play with bordering the entire image with some kind of black gradient border? Or a dark sepia gradient?

I’m also thinking those lens flares you’ve got going on are nice. Perhaps highlighting 2-4 more areas of text with them could work well?

And a question for you… Everything is centered except for the “My Events Presents.” Any particular reason this isn’t centered as well?

Toivo,

Hmm… “A little busy” aye… Interesting. Maybe a little busy for the tastes of people at envato? It seems there area preferred styles of design here. But I wonder what would happen if more different styles of design were accepted at Graphic River. It may open up even more purchasers to their marketplace.

I’ve been getting input from a number of people. I’m just going to see how much it all says about these particular pieces of design.

Thanks for the good luck!

I actually think it would be cool if it were a two color logo. Something where the sun’s center is one color and its corona another. This two color combination may work well if it were reproduced in the text. The top being the corona color and the bottom being the sun’s center color? Ideas to play with and test.

Aside from that, I think this logo’s element alignment and placement needs some alteration. Lining up the text to the right of the sun would be really well done if it both upper and lower text fit into an area the exact height of the sun image.

If you keep it all one color, see what adding some gradient might do to it.

I’m submitting these to Graphic River right after posting this! I’m also going to link them to this thread to let the reviewers see what others have to say about all of these designs; in hopes that it aids in making a more sound decision about their approval…

THE PLAN:

Promote and sell products on the Graphic River market place by using other, directly related products, that can be used hand in hand with an overall promotion. The flyer sells the facebook timeline cover image, and the other vector mascots; and vice-versa. Pretty clever, but I’ll have to see whether or not everything gets approved?

What are your thoughts?

Just a thought…

I wonder what would happen if you used your second design as it is, but changed the image of the product to something that fits the composition and color-scheme of your design. Trying to keep some perspective on things, if I were to look at your design without the product you’ve placed there, I would be scratching my head at what kind of product your layout and theme would work well with or promote.

Try changing the color of the phone’s body to one of the colors you’ve got in your color scheme. This seems like a design that should be tailored to an exact product; not something that is universal to all products…
