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!

goodgrowth

Shankdog, great work on # 3.

bgmccollum

i have to ask. was the grafitti PSd in? or did you tag that and take a pic. it looks so real.

shankd0g

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.

inman

That is some quality f’n photoshopping shank. Damn.

dega

That tag rocks.

cowpiesurprise

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!

inman

Given that it is on a street sign, legibility is of greater import than typographic appropriateness…

But in body copy, “No, no, no.”

mikser

Call me a kookoo, but I’d opt for apostophes here as well. I’d opt for it anywhere. Hell, I luv apostrophes and people using them right. (not saying I don’t love you guys though…)

shankd0g

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 didn’t notice this before since I am working in publication and have to edit stuff like that everyday.

shankd0g

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. :)

RevDrLuv

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?

RevDrLuv

Nah, looks like Cali to me.

Thanks.

Does your other personality know you are on here posting?

RevDrLuv

You might need to get some sleep Inman. When was the last time Savannah had mountains???

inman

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

shankd0g

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.

randy

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).

jel3
