Default Opinions on a quick thing I made in Illustrator



I'm defending the thesis that I wrote to graduate with honors, and as such I need to advertise it on cork-boards around campus - does this seem like the sort of thing that would grab a gamer's attention and, if not make him attend the defense, at least make him chuckle?

No gamer worth his salt is going to miss a poster with FF6 characters... I think its pretty good. Where are you going to school, btw?

I would go with the white text on blue-ish gradient (or whatever ff6 had as the default). Other than that, yeah, it would definately get my attention.

Four words: It is less text. It's more concise than any of the thesis defense fliers I've seen posted up in the past two years. It's supposed to convey the fact that it's a thesis defense, what the subject of the thesis is, the title of the thesis, the location, and the time and date. The only way I could make it more concise is if I used a fucking rebus.

ETSU. Graduating this May and heading down to work for what the gaming community considers to be the devil as of late. Then again, after the interview and seeing the working conditions, I can say that the gaming community doesn't know what it's talking about. <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>
