yea that makes sense

2017-11-27 17:38:24 UTC  

my fav poster right now is the welcome one

2017-11-27 17:38:59 UTC  

because I think it is actually something that has a clear meaninful message. How all that is good is under attack. I wanted to go more in that direction.

2017-11-27 17:39:07 UTC  

Not here not ever with the eagle will always get me.

i guess symbols about communism and jews are powerful and recruit a certain awaken individual

2017-11-27 17:40:42 UTC  

For instance, with the "this is our home" slogan, it could benefit from adding in a call to action in the form of "fight for it!" as well. And showing an idealized figure of an activist with a flag and mask, or something of that caliber.

2017-11-27 17:40:59 UTC  

I agree

2017-11-27 17:41:12 UTC  

call to actions are empowerig and are our core, since we are activists

2017-11-27 18:01:58 UTC  

If you're looking for working ideas maybe find old pictures or artwork of pioneers / settlers / cowboy like images with men armed leading their family into the frontier sort of thing.

Love family centered images because that is why I am here but an image of a baby or a white women alone is not enough maybe.

I think images that are masculine and aggressive both trigger Marxist trash which means spotlight and also shames/challenges/inspires young men to rise to the fight. Images that are too soft even if they are something precious don't hit all the points at once. Only my opinion.

Something like these?

2017-11-27 18:07:13 UTC  

#3 is strong

2017-11-27 18:18:39 UTC

This is a rough draft, but has a more activist look

2017-11-27 18:22:58 UTC  

Interesting, something like that. Also, the lower banner has the logos far too small to make out, and any minor printing errors will make the text hard or impossible to read. I do my best to keep my text a bit away from the margin of error, so none gets cut off.

2017-11-27 18:24:03 UTC  

Good points.

2017-11-27 18:24:22 UTC  

if any of these have potential, I'll clean them up for printing (color, margins, font)

2017-11-27 18:25:32 UTC  

I didnt really intend on tiny logos being clear, just comes off as a classy/sophisticated seperator.

2017-11-27 18:26:04 UTC  

2017-11-27 18:26:15 UTC  

*starts printing*

2017-11-27 18:26:28 UTC  

It does, I like the style, but it can be even better if it's functional also.

2017-11-27 18:26:35 UTC  

I pinned the two posterity designs.

2017-11-27 18:27:36 UTC  

Let me know if any of these you want me to clean up and make final versions of.

2017-11-27 18:28:36 UTC  

What we need is someone who's better than myself at makig figure designs so we can have original stuff commissioned.

2017-11-27 18:28:41 UTC  

I'm a text and logos guy.

2017-11-27 18:29:24 UTC  

yea...

2017-11-27 18:29:30 UTC  

I am not good at human figure

2017-11-27 18:30:26 UTC  

might be able to find an artist for hire to do some simple/rough sketches of certain poses

2017-11-27 18:30:42 UTC  

might be cheap, especially if like an art student on instagram or something

2017-11-27 18:32:25 UTC  

Nah, forget hiring anyone, we recruit our own talent.

2017-11-27 18:34:29 UTC  

Humans are tough to illustrate. I tried sketching the other day for something similar to what we're going for but it still falls short

2017-11-27 18:34:37 UTC  

I can do humans with charcoal

2017-11-27 18:34:40 UTC  

just need a photo

2017-11-27 18:34:45 UTC  

can't just pull it out of my head

2017-11-27 18:35:23 UTC  

Something more chiseled and abstract might work best.

2017-11-27 18:35:48 UTC  

well I can turn charcoal into vector and it will look modern and chiselled

2017-11-27 18:41:57 UTC  

this is an example, it's kind of rough because of the clouds and water, but a figure would be more definitive
