"Hey dude, I know what you mean about the wireframe. Initially I had planned to use the fill rather than the stroke to convey some sort of graphic language but after seeing the more four logo http://bpando.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/more-4.jpg?w=600&h=267 and the front cover of cagoule http://www.selectism.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/cagoule-magazine-01.jpg I had the fear that it might be too similar. I also believe that the mark should be more of a 'frame' rather than a piece of art itself but I agree it is a bit out of place. What if I dashed the strokes giving an impression of embroidery?"

"Hey Mikey, I like the feeling of depth created by combining 3D shapes and the vignette around them but I would suggest that either the cubes be brighter or the shadow softer. As for the type it's very sparse for a club night. I need to know where it is (street address) what time the doors open, what time the venue closes, dress code etc. Also consider what size the poster is and where it will be viewed. In a well lit pub I might have a chance of reading the text but considering where these types of promotion might end up I think you should consider either a larger point size or a heavier cut for your type."

"Print Restrictions Hey Alana, I'm going to concentrate on print limitations here, mainly as I believe it's shocking none of us have been taught about them yet! A common issue with student work is that we tend to position important elements far too close to the trimmed edge or folds of a print job. This gives the printer no tolerance (or margin of error) and can potentially compromise a print run. I found this link: http://www.rcs.plc.uk/Content/Design-Requirements.aspx#5 really handy when I first started at the print shop as the majority of my artwork had been sent back on my first print brief! Hope this is as useful as it is boring! "

"Great illustration, I love the juxtaposition of desaturated art on a bright background! The differing line widths throughout lend the vector lines more character than cold 'perfect' curves. Lovely. If I were going to nitpick I would suggest that the halftone pattern is very pronounced on the feet and brow, which distracts the eye a little. Might it be worth exploring with a slightly more subtle density? Alternatively you could remove the claws altogether?"
COMMENT
"You are totally correct dude but it's these (common) issues that turn in to full blown flame wars on busy forums. Without moderation any tool that allows users to type whatever they wish runs the risk of hurting peoples feelings. The other danger is without the ability to edit or remove your own posts comments made in haste are hard to remove."
