let’s see if we can’t finish this thing up.
shankd0g wasting no time! Slick, invisible use of Ye Olde Photoshoppe there shank. I’m really digging this DSNLG.
Is shankdOg the first person to post an image since the relaunch? Special!
I didn’t even notice the writing in the grafitti at first. Kick ass!
Shankdog, great work on # 3.
i have to ask. was the grafitti PSd in? or did you tag that and take a pic. it looks so real.
here’s the original photo Just wrote the tag on plain paper with a marker, scanned, inversed, screened, clipped, and smudged.
the goal of this dsnlg was to take photos, give them a ‘design’ slant with realistic photo manipulation.
That is some quality f’n photoshopping shank. Damn.
That tag rocks.
Don’t stop designing, but please DO stop using foot marks in place of apostrophes. Sorry, it’s just a big pet peeve of mine. Looks slick otherwise though!
Given that it is on a street sign, legibility is of greater import than typographic appropriateness…
But in body copy, “No, no, no.”
Call me a kookoo, but Id opt for apostophes here as well. Id opt for it anywhere. Hell, I luv apostrophes and people using them right. (not saying I dont love you guys though…)
honestly. i had toyed with not using any puncuation on the sign because i dont think i have seen a sign with any. i figured i would really catch some heat if i had left it out entirely.
now if i can only find this apostrophe everyone is talking about on my PC keyboard.
just found out it’s ALT+0146 on a PC.
visually i still think ’ is more appealing.
Or to be more official sounding you could have written out “Do Not,” but whatever. I am surprized I didnt notice this before since I am working in publication and have to edit stuff like that everyday.
i guess it’s just my lack of print experience showing..
now with time to comment, you surely have time to post your followup. still waiting. :)
These signs were placed like this in the original photo. Originally they said “no parking between signs,” which is good, but I thought this was a funny “designy” twist.
and yes I do think it is clever.
What the hell was somebody going to park between THOSE signs?!
Nice work Nat, is that in Sav’h?
Nah, looks like Cali to me.
Does your other personality know you are on here posting?
You might need to get some sleep Inman. When was the last time Savannah had mountains???
Sleep? You don’t know the half of it. Check the ‘Lounge in a bit for the scoop on my trip into the city and the tow out that followed. As for my other personality I was doing some debugging of Trusted Member permissions and forgot that I wasn’t logged in as inman proper. I’ve fixed to save on the confusion.
Mountains in Sav’h…I don’t know….Bay Street is a little steep down by the River Street Mariott ;D
ok rev. this is nice.
it’s real deSIGNy.. spacing between letters.. between signs.. etcetcetc.
now i need to think of something here… hmmmmmmmm.
i think i might have an idea.. :).. no that’s just dinner coming back up on me. vurp.
This DSNLG is blowing me away! Great job both of you. Anytime either of you get any free time feel free to initiate a DSNLG with me (no matter the subject).
Great work so far guys love the use of photographs
beauty on No. 3 shankdoogydog…way to go the extra mile to perfect the image..
good stuff. i like this thread because of it’s simplicity. right on. it would be great if someone would ok my membership so that i could do cool designs like this.
slap an ape
i was almost blinded by #3’s bright colors. great job overall on all of them!
