Message from Josh OH in Front And Center #activism
Yeh that's what I was about to say
Make the middle one day patriot front
yea we can delete all this chatter until these are approved
If it's not pinned, you shouldn't print it out, that's the rule
Well pin it then😂
Here's a good one
A better one
Another idea I am working on
That looks great. Would poster.
Probably can't use because of photo, but still love this.
That design seems too 1.0, to be frank.
yea it may be good, but not for PF
My criticism of the "this is our home" design is that the symbolism should be a bit more... masculine. Our target demographic isn't women here, and the wheatfields stuff gets a bit played out.
Rugged pioneer-explorer-conqueror-warrior, not so much motherly figures.
A lot of our posters are politically oriented. Am playing around with trying to reach man's emotions like family
ehhh I guess it depends on who you are recruiting
are men not attracted to imagery of women?
On swimsuit magazines, sure, but not for organizations based on radical street activism.
but defending the family is a motiivation for lot of us
but maybe that is not good for recruiting
Family stuff is for actually doing, and we can promote it that way, showing that people are actually doing it, having big meets with families, things like that.
But when it comes to activism, that's the outward set of teeth, aggression, power, forward momentum, attack attack attack, is the feeling you should be going for.
it kind of humanizes the org in a way
so more aggressive and power oriented designs?
When it comes to complex things like family support and all that, **show don't tell.** We can show our community of family oriented guys, and it'll do way better than just telling people we're pro family in a poster.
not to sound like a jerk, but what is the exact purpose of the posters
to trigger and to recruit
Yes, in a nutshell
Also, they're widely circulated, and form as a basis for promoting a brand, of sorts.
On top of that, they help bring people up to speed with small scale activism.
So they can work their way up.
yea that makes sense
my fav poster right now is the welcome one
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.
