GideonGASM
« on: August 24, 2015, 01:30:33 am »
Every fall, on many college campi (or at least mine),  hoards of christ crispies show up in suits to hand out bibles. This competition must be infiltrated and subverted. I'm thinking flyers that pass as christian church flyers at a glance. The more generic and evangelical-looking, the better.

A few initial direction ideas: full satire christianity, direct Discordian propaganda simply disguised like evangelical stuff, or just flat-out confusingly off (too many typos is one of my favorites).

Any suggestions?

Subgenius Pamplet #1.  Seriously.
Morrissey is the crown prince of sad.  He teaches us that deaf/mute girls are terrible at telling you that a disaster is occurring, and that when you get famous, all your old friends hate you for buying new tee shirts.  Morrissey fans are best known for hugging their legs and biting their knees in the shower, over a girl that dumped them rather than learn their name, or binge-eating an entire pizza and then throwing it up on their man-boobs in the bath tub, while they squeeze their  testicles until they remember that they are worthless and do not deserve love.

How long do you have before the event and what's your printing budget?

I don't know when. They just kinda show up. As for budget, not much. At this point I'm looking at using this (http://churchflyerdesign.com/photos/flyers90_lg.jpg) as a starting point.

Okay, so here's where I act like I know everything about flyers. I don't and am a pompous asshole, but some of this may be useful to you:

If you have no budget, go easy on ink/toner and definitely stick to black and white. That means white backgrounds wherever possible and light images.
If you're only paying per-page, stick to black and white but feel free to waste their ink with big black/dark gray sections as needed.
Full sheet things are a waste of everyone's time and money unless you're posting them on bus stops or something.
Jesus people love the quartersheet sized booklet. I can give you a photoshop, pdf, or indesign template for making those, but they're pretty easy.
Double sided printing is the best thing ever. Especially if you have someone else figuring out how to get the fucking duplex shit to work right.

Well, if you wanna give it a go at some later date we can still help you pound out some materials.
