While this poster has a lot of my favorite elements (hand-done type, drawing on old magazine images, asymmetry, cassette tapes) it also contains a big bummer. I don't know if it's gonna show up on the newspaper page, but the image suffers from the dreaded moiré effect. That's the uneven interference pattern that emerges when you scan and rescreen an already half-toned image. You can blur the image a bit in Photoshop to lose the original dot screen and print it at a lower dot frequency (i.e., bigger dots) to get a clean, graphically punchy image. Or you can just tell me to fuck right off.
