Re: [-empyre-] Off-topic: Poster Art
Very nice vision. I liked your explanation. Maybe the message be one of
the properties that make poster strong (as ad and as art). The visual
simplicity of the graphical elements, texts and colors also help its. Well,
whatever, everyday I know someone that tell me he likes poster art. It looks
magical, but I thing you are right.
Some poster artists, like me, create posters of shows that never will
happen. Fiction. But it's cool and still works good as an exercise or a
"theraphy" for those who like or work with graphical design and layout. ;-)
