Message from Thomas Ryan in Front And Center #activism
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.
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
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.
call to actions are empowerig and are our core, since we are activists
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?
#3 is strong
This is a rough draft, but has a more activist look
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.
if any of these have potential, I'll clean them up for printing (color, margins, font)
I didnt really intend on tiny logos being clear, just comes off as a classy/sophisticated seperator.
It does, I like the style, but it can be even better if it's functional also.
I pinned the two posterity designs.
Let me know if any of these you want me to clean up and make final versions of.
What we need is someone who's better than myself at makig figure designs so we can have original stuff commissioned.
I'm a text and logos guy.
I am not good at human figure
might be able to find an artist for hire to do some simple/rough sketches of certain poses
might be cheap, especially if like an art student on instagram or something
