Slippery Surface by bashcorpo Slippery Surface by bashcorpo
A little typo-art about the unpleasant surprise of frosty weather! =D

'Surface.. zero degrees celcius. Parking Lot.. slippery asphalt under the electric lights of the frozen winter's night...'

- that's poetry for ya'...! :lmao:

Diggin' the humor in this, and the play with type.

Words echo message.
The way you arranged them. It really communicates the idea well. Makes me feel like I'm slipping...

Oh, you're from around the Dubai area? 'Cause a friend told me about a year ago he had seen it too... The story is a company stole this plus other works from users here on DeviantART to use them on official school notebooks and various similar print works.

Would you maybe be able to take a picture of it or scan it somehow? Especially if you see any contact info or company names of the distributors.

Thanks a bunch in advance and even more for your sweet comment! It means a lot :hug:

Ya know, thinking about this, the only thing Id actually suggest could use some improvement is the circular gradient in the background. Its banding pretty badly. If you were to take that into Photoshop and add a touch of monochromatic noise (like 3-5%, say) that might fix it.

:iconbashcorpo:
bashcorpo Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2007  Professional Interface Designer
hey stephen, the reason for the bad gradient you mentioned was due to my old crappy monitor that just darkened it all up so i couldn't see, but i've got hold on a new monitor in the meantime and it made the problem very clearly indeed, so thanks a bunch for the tip i'm just sorry it took ages for me to correct and reply to..

but instead of blurring up the bands (which didn't at all look as planned) i've decided to just remove the gradient completely and make the background clean. i hope that'll work out too, and thanks again ^^
