On gigposters.com this design by Jay from Stateless (www.sttlss.com) has two comments posted. One says "Great poster for a great band," and the other says, "Sick of the circle." Which got me thinking about techniques and trends in design, and how one person's style is another person's gimmick. Is it a crime to reuse an effective technique? Is it lazy to repeat your own good idea? Or is that exactly how a personal aesthetic is developed? I asked Jay what he thought, and he said: "Hah, the circle is life, motherfuckers, get used to it."
