The most important is approved by the reviewer and then selling the lots. More and more. Simple. .

I agree though, they all are using the same fonts, font styles and these wooden title bars and palm trees shrugs

This is actually a really good point. And as a designer I have to say that i agree totally. And don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that I was more unique than anyone else. I would love to make some simple designs but they just won’t get through the review process at the moment. If you use simple and functional typography and I mean fonts that are well designed but minimalistic, you will be asked to “improve” the typography and to check out the current best selling flyers a.k.a. the flyers with the palm trees. So for a designer its quite easy to draw the conclusion that that what the reviewers want is a buch of palm trees and a sleek array of speakers. and ofcourse some gradients and lensflares on the texts. Graphic presentations with old school graphic elements without dropshadows and gradients will be ruled flat and “not up to the standards. I would definately like to see an opening for simpler designs. Cleaner and not so stuffed. Put black text on a white background and you will be banned forever. ;)

And after all marketing is all about standing out from the crowd. well, not all but it’s a big part. And at the moment simple designs would be it.

my 3 cents. :) oh and ps. I love you all. seriously. no homo. or maybe a bit of that too. :)

I think GR is fine, it’s just the reviewing process that’s kinda odd.

I say different strokes for different folks. Kinda like cars, personally I wouldn’t want to own an audi, and why? because to me it just looks cheap and like it’s trying way too much. Or why some people prefer the fashion models over the strippers… :) and you can easily say that the fashion model might look a bit “flat” :) but still some folks would take that over the “jersey shore” girls any day.

We need variety and some space to create different designs.

Some staff input on this subject would be nice.
