First, let me preface this post by stating that i will be posting more often, maybe even on a regular basis...don't sleep!
Ok, so now for those that might not be in the know (living under a rock, however you want to term it), Clickartist Media and DRIP Entertainment have come together to present According 2 Hip Hop, the hip hop trivia game for lyric lovers! Currently it is available for iPod Touch and iPhone, with an iPad version coming soon...more posts strictly on that soon.
A couple of weeks ago, we at According 2 Hip Hop threw a celebration night at The Apache Cafe here in the good ol' ATL, showcasing some of the freshest independent hip hop artists around, including Gresekydz, Ekundayo, Transistor Fist, Urban Field Operatives and the Undergrads...and we needed a flyer, ASAP.
Lucky that the friendly neighborhood Clickartist was on the case...
Even though the game is an entire experience in itself, i wanted to direct this more for those that would be interested in the three headline acts. The LED font gave it more of a broadcast feel (who doesn't like their names in lights?), and i had fun messing with the threshold portraits on the other side...
Most of the time went into working the According 2 Hip Hop letterhead out of the original screenshot (preferred over waiting for a rework of it. Time was of the essence), then a slight yellow drop shadow on it pulled it back to it's original glory
And for the record, the show was off the heezy!!!
