Ok, so I really didn’t want to upload my preview here, but I’m trying to wrap my brain around what I can do to get this approved.
First, let’s just start off by me saying this is the best piece of graphic art I have ever made to date. I am REALLY proud of it. And although there aren’t any design flaws, it needs to have something unique done to it, in order for it to be accepted, as I’ve been in contact with my reviewer. I really appreciated their quick responses, even though I’m really sad it hasn’t been accepted.
So, I was told that there are a lot of club/party/music/event flyers being made, and in order for mine to be accepted I have to come up with something original to make it stand out from the crowd.
My target buyers would be Club Promoters, and Event Promoters, so I’m really at a loss for what I can do. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
The part that kills me, is that this design is 100% better than my previous design.
Either use your own images or find some Creative Commons images that allow Commercial use.
Check Flikrs Creative Commons area.aceD3SIGNS saidYou’re right, you can’t include them in the download, only for previews.
xstortionist saidI thought you weren’t allowed to use them for commercial use…?
I highly doubt all these flyer makers are taking their own super professional pictures of cityscapes, and discoballs. I’ll check out the flickr place.
Hey guys! I just have a question to the flyer makers. Where do you get your assets from? Things like pictures of cities, disco balls, speakers, etc.
On mine I’ve been having to make everything from scratch, because I don’t know where to find assets you can use in commercial use!
I think your design is quite good and I dont see really any faults with it, however graphicriver already has a large quantity of well-executed black business cards. They’re even on the files we dont need list . Try something new and not too generic.
Yeah, true. Maybe if I made a whole Identity pack, with Letterheads, envelopes, presentation folders, etc?
aceD3SIGNS saidIt’s hard to see on your preview image, let alone from an industrial printer
quickandeasy saidIt actually does show up! It’s just a subtle change, but it adds an effect that I ended up liking better than the matte background.
There’s no point having a texture so small either, it won’t be seen on print
Yes, but what I’m trying to say, is that when I delete that texture layer that I created, the overall background loses a dynamic that I enjoy. You may not be able to see the texture in detail, but it helps to create the final product.
I think the colors you’ve used are like the duller, more lackluster version of their best shade. Try brightening them up a bit! People want their logos to be memorable, and pop!
Everything looks kind of blurry. Like the scale has been stretched too far. I like the color scheme, but intensify it; sharpen it. Make it cleaner, and more fresh.
I think the white brush effects are dull, not scaled properly, and out of place a bit.
I like the city in the background though! Where do you guys find all these pictures to use for commercial purposes! I’m stuck making everything from scratch! Haha.
Honestly, I think a lot of it needs to be refined. Most of the background looks like it was very easy to make, and didn’t require a lot of steps or layers. I can almost pick out every effect you used.
I like the text, I think you should play up that rich red and gold vibe!
