new rule... entries must be at least 75% picture not words. -_-'
besides... isn't this breaking the pop culture rule?

A lot of these are off topic, not seeing the war propaganda aspect. But the good news is I haven't seen a turtle, bunny, rainbow or unicorn yet. This could be the best derby yet.

Re: Brave New World (Not Black Edition)



Great Job! I like the text. I don't think it takes away from the design and it makes your message clear.

YAWN! I'm not seeing the WWII propaganda poster in this design. Actually I've seen this "Keep Calm" in almost every derby. Isn't this pop culture anyway?

Not seeing the WWII propaganda aspect to this design. Seems off topic to me

Mmm-hmm, I used to love using this one archive of WWI-era social hygiene propaganda posters that were indeed simplistic slogan+graphic-type designs. They did have a very distinctive style and were great fun to reuse for humour.

I guess my question would be.... If this shirt was to print, someone would look at it and say " Ohhh I love the WWII Poster propaganda usage here !! ??? NOT very disappointing use of wasted rules....BUT that is nothing new here....

Thanks for all of the support on this(these) design! I can't imagine it winning but it was worth designing just to see it appreciated.

I do not disagree with you. I do not see this design as evoking any classical propaganda style (it doesn't HAVE to be WW2, as far as I interpret it).

Of course, I am not too familiar with propaganda posters, as clarified on another entry, so it is quite possible--likely, even!--that this entry takes inspiration from a particular poster or classic propaganda style with which I am not familiar.

You are absolutely right... however, I watch week after week of what I refer to as "rule breakers" . I am sure with any art form there is always a one of scenario, this group seems to abuse it more so then not. Please note, not everyone, you can look at the so called artwork and tell who is falling from grace....My issue is that WOOT cannot !

Re: Social Science Networking



I was really happy about this weeks derby. I'm a huge fan of the art work from the 40's thru the 50's. Which led to the comicbook art style of today....

The "oy vey" from my comment was, in large part, a response to what seems like a more enthusiastic effort to get entries disqualified. It is not surprising that someone used this poster for inspiration. I believe it was mentioned in the pre-derby thread.

If rules are broken or other works are genuinely plagiarized, then I'm all for that being pointed out. However, that wasn't the case here.
