Best to drop the time and date etc to the bottom. Font size could be smaller, too. (On the actual flyer)

Get their attention with "Cooking, juggling, getting hurt" at the top in larger font.

Then the crash helmet bit, to tie in with "getting hurt" and then your mug shots.

Helmet size reduced slightly to make room for your photos, and some negative space, otherwise it's a bit too crowded and sideshowy.

The diagonals are good. The "interactive fun" bit is hard to notice. I didn't see it first time. Maybe it needs to go under the "getting hurt" stuff. Diagonal, in smaller font than the "Cooking"etc.

Thumbs Up

Scot,

I like it. It makes me want to go to the show. But I'd like to see more variety in the photos.

Maybe illustrate "Cooking, Juggling, Getting hurt" with the three photos. (I know you sort of did, but it could be more colorful/varied. Like put one photo upside down or zoomed in... the framing of each pic is too similar as it is.)

Also, maybe make the helmet/utensils a bit smaller and the pics a bit bigger.

The back of the card looks great.

Jim

I just want to say that the middle picture is going to go over very well with the SOMA homo crowd...

Also, I'd say take off the quote from Hiya on the back, if you want to use it, put it on the front, but it doesn't fit on the back, and the original version you showed me without the quote just looked better.

Could the carrots be sticking out of your ears instead? Or maybe one piece of carrot with a piece of celery in the mouth...? Reminds me too much of the pingpongballsinthemouthpose.

...What you're not showing so far is cooking utensils.

...Maybe a piece broccoli as a lapel splash.

Default Try again

Seems to me that first pic of a blurry elbow is a waste of real estate. Go back to the full pic or choose another. Helmet is too big.

Scot I kinda agree here. The attempt was good and it shook up the "similar framing/pose" issue but you could do something more interesting on the first fame.

Maybe zoom out a little bit and show the fist almost contacting the face... but crop it so only half of your face is in the frame.

Just a thought.

Jim

Mime You guys are never satisfied

Thanks for all the tips. I'm going to keep looking over the design and trying to fix it a little today.

Chance: Great ideas for the next photoshoot. Hopefully not many people have seen and remember the ping pong ball routine, becuase that's pretty much all my show is.

Butt: The helmet thing isn't a law. Take that up with your wife.

Jim: The framing that I originally chose is intentionally repetitive so as to give a photobooth/ movie effect of a lot of action and same person, many aspects.

World: The helmet is matching up with my billboards, posters, tshirts and other branding. I want to make that in the foreground and the biggest thing so that people look at the fliers to find out more about what they've seen around town.

Thanks everybody. I'll try to incorporate pieces of each of your tips in my final design.

Default its the face!

Keep the facial expressions, they tell a lot, convey more emotion.

On the back, or receipe side, if he is writing in black, and she is writing in red,
maybe she should sign it with a lip print?


In keeping with the theme, but maybe not enough room, how about " $15 a serving" ? or "$15 a plate" ?

interactive would be easier to read verticly if hyphonated, but may or may not be desirable. The effort to read it as is
may help memory retention.

And remember that quote about perfection being the enemy of greatness. If you didn't change a thing, it would be good.

"but crop it so only half of your face is in the frame."

Told you so.

I like it, and I second the 15 a plate idea.
