Haven’t done designologue for a while. So, I wanna start with a simple clean one, now we will see how Lincoln take me to a next level!!^_^

I’m in love with your illustration, I like the message but typo does not convince me.

In my opinion, it whould look better justified and from top of image, keeping the same distance between left and illustration than from handbag to right or large typo across the background…

anyway is really a cool work. Can’t wait for Lincoln response!

inVZbl

Agree with Xavi, the illustrations looks good but is let down with the type. The type hasnt the same style / finess as what the illustration does. Should have experimented more with it.

clevsone

I agree with the above comments somewhat.. the type doesnt fit in my view..also what bothers me a bit is how the window/plane/water seem very 3d while the woman is 2d.. just bugs me a bit.. and the 3d lines of grey seem a little sloppy..

commudesmax

nod nod my head. I agreed with my type problem. May be I was too rush. (EXCUSE:: too busy at work ^_^) But I will pay more attention next time.

Clevsone:: Is that image btw vector and image really bother you that much? My purpose of doing that was to really separate the outside world and where she was. May be I go for the wrong way, but I like it this way^_^

RevDrLuv

I really love this image. The white space, stark type and clean lines set this clinical mood, just like an airport or modern apartment. But the subject matter and words are very intimate, so together it all says so much more. Also a great starting point for lincoln to expound upon.

Beerad

This first two times I looked at this I never read the type. Looking at this way is much better then reading it. I finally read it today and it did feel like it was to much. Could of, if you wanted text used a type that looks like real leters but you can’t read it or just used that last line.

Cause Tomorrow, I will not be here.

Thats a powerful line.

Lincoln

that’s hot. super doper even.

i like everything but the little white line that goes under the edge of the top of the window.

i don’t have a problem with the text…I might have preferred it a little smaller, or maybe in a more rigid, slightly digital (rigidigital) kinda font - to go with the vector and contrast the personal tone. but what do i know?

Lincoln

i like a woman who travels with nothing but a bowling ball. ; )

bharper

you just want a women who’s got enough room for your big balls..

Lincoln

not if she’s takin em with her

clevsone

Commudesmax… no it doesn’t bother me that much..just a tad bit.. and I like the poetic touch instead of a slogan.. I love literacy!!

commudesmax

Wa ha ha ha ha…I can write english poem. wha ha ha ha ha..Oops, sorry, got too excited for a bit.

That white line on the window frame…..I don’t know how it got there….must be more cafeful next time ^_<

About the font, I have to admit that if I just spend some more time to look for the perfect font, it will be better, but I don’t think it would be great with digital font, may be a more real letter font as Beerad said.

Lincoln :: You must have forgot what that lady has in her bowling bag. It’s neither her bowling ball, nor your balls, it is my favorite chainshaw. wha ha ha

Lincoln

damn it inman, if the image is supposed to speak for itself, then why do you force us to comment when we post? i don’t have anything to say. I never do. this is injustification! I want my money back!

Wow. If this designologue continues on in this fashion, slowly panning out down an airport terminal…hell, even if it doesn’t, just the possibility of it doing that…that’s just cool.

inman

PS: It doesn’t have to be explaining the content of the image. It could be about the visual direction you chose or where you hope the image is going. Or just pull a BG and drop some l33t h4x0r 5p34k—pwn3d!!

bharper

nice lincoln… you got me feeling good with this one..

commudesmax

AR~~~~~ Why is a bald head old papa, Lincoln? Can’t you just give me a handsome boy for ONCE? AR~~~~~ MUST DESTROY OLD PA PA

By the way, this is nice, me like it long time~

inVZbl

yeah i had the same feeling Inman.. would be kewl if all the images pulled out from each other…

Love everything except the type treatment… it seems so most of the effort was put into the illustrations with the typography left as an after thought. Anyways nice work :)

commudesmax

Lincoln:: They know what are we doing…….

xavi

I love that work. Can’t wait to see where is it going (maybe will last in florida!). But I’m still not convinced with the typo used…

inman

Don’t let our assumptions stop you from following through on the original idea. It’s too cool to stray now!

commudesmax

Inman, even you know what I was thinking….AR~~~~ too much madness~~

commudesmax

what do ya think?

I got busted by my boss again….haha, I really shouldn’t do this at work…

inman

D’oh! I blew it. I guess we’re not in for the long pan. Striking illustration Euphenia. Pseudo-Samurai Jack, no? My only complaint here is that the text is rather difficult to read because of it’s size.

Typical woman, making us work to figure out what’s going on inside that head ;D

Lincoln

I’m a little let down that you didn’t continue pulling out of the same scene in the airport. (this logue originally started with her idea to zoom out in every new image) and I’m sure you’re gonna argue and say that this new one is zooming out. but I was starting to see this ‘trip’ in an airport, in the same moment, through many people’s heads. and now…well, now I just don’t know what to think.

but the image rocks, and I deserve to have a curve or two thrown at me, so what can I say?

monkeycyclops

Nice image and nice illustration. I hope the next one pulls out to a softball sign-up sheet on the bulletin board.

commudesmax

Ha ha, Lincoln, u know me well. When you said you were a little down, I instantly said to myself “IT IS ZOOMING OUT STILL”.

Well, I actually did the image with still in the airport at first(that look awesome too, I will send you the file later), but then I decided to change it, ‘cause I too see a nice 8 images in the same terminal at the airport….but too predictable (mispell?), so I decided to use this image instead. Sorry to let you down. I promise we will do another DSLG with that, ok? ^_< Now, stop whining and do the next image. hahaha

Inman, I’m also disappointed with the text, it wasn’t suppose to be as blurry as it is… My mistake >_< But no Samurai Jack, just wanna make a hot lady with pointy booby, that’s all.hahaha

commudesmax

thanks for the compliment monkey. But man, softball ain’t no good, put up the DodgeBall man.

Lincoln

alright, now that I’ve had a minute to sit on it, I’m glad you switched it up.

and your tacks are great

Beerad

Looks cool. Whats up with everyone doing these sort of postcard, letter, map collage? And I’m glad I can’t really read the type.

Diamantis

Me too, I hate reading!

Diamantis

Great DNLG so far! I’ve been getting a sense of nostalgia from all the images.

commudesmax

tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap…where are you Lincoln? did you went on a trip?

yusecki

I guess this is another battle that died.. SIGH pity, nice images in here

Lincoln

not a battle and not dead just in some severe hibernation. really busy lately. but a lot of the newbie hotness around here is making me want to get on it again. I’ll do something soonish.

Lincoln, your work draws nigh the line of pushing me past “inspiration” to “quitting”.

: sigh :

Incredible.

RevDrLuv

oh-so-fresh!

commudesmax

I LOVE YOU~~~ FINALLY~~~ I really thought I you have given up on this one, since I disappointed you. 4 more to go, I will make it nice, so you can come up with something even cooler ^_^

For other designologuenese…(ha, i like make up words), it might be just a nice image. but for those who knows Lincoln, it’s more fun to look at. Because may be you are in part of our trip ^_^ ho ho ho

zdoob

bravo. this rocks!

inman

That really is gorgeous, Lincoln. It makes me think of this (although I realize it’s nothing like that it does have a similar grandeur).

inman

PS: You should really go easy on the cigarettes. ;D

inVZbl

Man i love the detail, hardly a flaw in it.

Nice work…

bharper

wow

cJw

:applauds:

Bravo!

Encore? :p

EuRip

Great Detail,

Super Fresh…. Two Thumbs Up

NeonLotus

a god amongst mere mortals.

creighton

I hate it because it sux0rs. Lincoln sucks at designologue. He needs to stop this. I give it a 4.

arthaus

This is a really nice logue. That last image is bit special, how do I give it a 5?! You must have spent enough time on that. BTW, what’s that little rectangle box thinggy on the far left, and why have those power sockets got no switches? Health and safety will be onto you, you know. ;-)

RevDrLuv

Do all power sockets have switches on them in the UK? Not here inammerika buddy. We like to live dangerously! Wooooohooo

arthaus

Hehe, fair enough. :)

I think all power sockets here have switches, although you made me stop and think for a moment there. So now I’m going around checking each one to see, so thanks for that ;-P

Villi

This DSNLG is now one of my favorites. That makes two with Lincoln’s name on it for me.

I keep coming back to look at that board and finding new things on it. The detail is amazing. The imagery is superb with regard to the “story”. Execution + Concept make this far more than a 4, but alas, that’s as high as one can rate.

Good job to the both of you. I drool for the next 4 images. Well done!

-t

Villi

yes this is one heck of a Logue.

I just can´t shake the feeling I´ve seen the first drawing somewhere before…

Lincoln

hey euphenia, where you at? I didn’t stump you, did i?

Lincoln

cuz if i did, GOOD. you stumped me with your previous image.

also, i gotta admit, for all my effort to focus on details with this last image, i suck. I don’t have a clue where that ‘little rectangle box thingy’ on the left border came from. total accident. just something leftover in photoshop that i missed. and i didn’t even notice it when arthaus commented on it. i thought he was talking about the wall socket. whoops.

bumfluff

Love the way this one is going.. especially the way you hafta use your imagination a little to think what’s going on. Looking forward to seeing the return volley

cJw

Now that I look closer - and on my work monitor as the one @ home is dying - what’re the gray triangles to the lower left of the tack board? PS artifacts as well, I suspect?

Somehow I think all of these ‘extras’ will contribute to the return image. :)

BGD

I really like this theme. Although I had in mind (before seeing) that it would be a crack in the pavement kinda falling over scene.

How wrong was I?

Good movement from Image 1 to 3 though.

I wish I was this clever!
