Hi from Berlin

Does everything seem Greek to you? Use English, German, French or Italian here!

Hi from Berlin

Δημοσίευσηαπό doraemon » 08.04.06, 4:47 pm

Dear vcdc users,

hi! i am a Tibetan graphic designer currently living in Berlin and find this forum a great place for inspiration. My Greek friend first introduced me to this site and I have been hooked since - I wish I could understand Greek though :oops:

I designed a flyer for a demonstration last month and I was wondering what you guys think of it - hope you like it!!!

Dear doraemon,
It is a great pleasure of us, to have you among our members.
Actually, we all have a common language, the visual one... design!

This poster of yours, has a political message? You are using a specific color palette. It is related with something back in your country, your people? I would love to know. You are using clear and simple design and that's a good choice for a poster!

Allow me a personal point, not necessary correct. The word "TIBET" should be addressed using a font revealing the geographical origin of it.

Thanks for your registration here, and welcome!

Hi there,

thanks for your comments!

Yes, I was deliberately using the colours of the Tibetan flag. It looks like this:
http://www.tibet.com/flag.gif

It has a political message as the flag itself is forbidden as Tibet is occupied by China. So the point was to deconstruct the flag to symbolise the destruction of Tibet and the fact that it is in fragments symbolises the burden of oppression.

Tibetan does not have roman characters (Tibetan has its own alphabet made up of 30 letters) and I was addressing mainly German citizens so I wanted something more familiar to them.

Here is an example of Tibetan letters - they are really beautiful:

It's great to be a member of the forum. I just wish there was an option to view the site in english, because i depend on my Greek friend to help me find my way around all the different posts.

Best wishes,
Doraemon
Tibet will be free!

Out-of-town-ers! Cool!

Welcome from me too and thank you for posting!

I like what you have done with your color ribons, they remind me exactly what you meant ot remind me:

Εικόνα

I would only remove those few dots form the left yellow side of your poster.

Let me take tha time to point you to a couple of ongoing projects of our online forum:

Our VCDC Cyberworm
Our Pixel.Art.Project
Our iPod battle

We 'd love it if you had a go at any of these ;) Any help you need just email any one of us.

Have a pleasant stay.

Hi Doraemon and welcome!!

I think it's a great design, very simple and gets the message across. My only suggestion would be to highlight the words "freiheit fur" a bit more, as this would have been the actual goal of the demonstration.

Free Tibet!

Brilliant! The message is now pretty clear to me.

Let me invite you to some of our games.

ipodbattle: have a look at the other participations and design one of yours.
Examples here: http://ipodbattle.vcdc.gr/photofolio/
Present yours here: http://www.vcdc.gr/forum/viewtopic.php?t=364&start=105

And we have also, a pixel art experimental project.
Examples here: http://pixelart01.vcdc.gr/pixel_art_project/
Present yours here: http://vcdc.gr/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2763

And finaly, we have an e-zine.
You can see the first two issues here:
vol. 1.1 http://l6ko.vcdc.gr/download.php?file=optiko_l6ko.pdf
vol. 1.2 http://l6ko.vcdc.gr/download.php?file=optiko_l6ko_2.pdf

you can design a landscape DIN A4 single page, with 5mm bleeds top, bottom and outside, images at 300 ppi, and you can send it to: sokale8@otenet.gr using the http://www.yousendit.com/ service.

the design subject of this vol. is "spring" and you can use german, English or even Tibetian typography (don’t forget to embed fonts or maybe better to create outlines).

Enjoy !

Woow Your flag is beautifull!!!

I've never seen it before!

The example of characters impressive as well!


I love the way thought when doing the poster! Is really clever!

If you have any trouble on finding anything in the forum, and your Greek friend isn't there (really who is he?) you can always "pm" me or someone of the other admins and we'll do anything we can to help you...

C Ya!

Dear Doraemon,

Welcome to our community!

let me agree with miltos, that your flyer is very good and has very strong symbolism! another good fact is that your poster has not too many elements, otherwise it wouldn't be as communicative as now!

It's our pleasure to have members from other countries!

I wish you stay here as long as you wish, because you will find help on everything about design!

See u soon doraemon!

Keep designing!
