no offense to anyone meant in this post, there are just some things that would get most designers in trouble if not fired by clients.

the layout is bad, real bad. Here are just a few things wrong (and it has nothing to do with content, strictly design)

- Hard edges everywhere
- photoshop difference clouds don't cut it as a background
- shadows are inconsistent in shade and depth
- font shade doesn't match the rest of design, it's too dark
- "banner" angle is way off if it's supposed to look like it is attatched to pillars
- truck needs better lighting for product photo, soft spherical lighting would do wonders for the look of the truck in photos

just things that would lose me customers, i hate to see Radikal trucks not have an add up to par with their product. If you need help with a future add, i would gladly help.

this post is not meant to offend you or to get into some sort of flame war.


if you would like to critique the work then i would suggest taking a look at it full size. Posters will be available soon at radikals website

I love to see you do better. if you would like to try to take my client feel free to submit your work.

Attention is right. Sure worked here.

Yeah, I like the ad too. I ride Radikals too. They do indeed kick azz.

I think Mary has just realize that us guys keep our copy of CW in the bathroom anyway and she's killing two birds with one stone.

Ups to Mary!

radikal poster

Postby Mark McCree » Sat Aug 07, 2004 3:51 pm

As everyone know knows, the ad has been changed to a "skirted" female in a flurry of flames standing on a red truck.

The image above will be released in the form of a #rd poster signed by myself in the corner. There will be a limited # printed and will be ready prior to the worlds this year.

Mary has done an outstanding job with the RADIKAL graphics for the past year, and I hope the trend will continue.

As for this GA grudge stuff--- The FLA boys who took 123 last year will do it again!!!!!
