Once again, courtesy of those delightful designers over Magnificent Beard, comes this week's winning design, which takes a fairly simplistic concept, turns it on its head, and makes you want to bang your head against the wall for not coming up with it first.
In today's media-centric world, of course it makes sense to present the nine members of the Wu-Tang Clan as a DVD box set, right? Add in the fact that one disc is missing -- Ol' Dirty Bastards, for obvious reasons -- and it's also a statement about how disposable these kinds of collectibles are. (We'll pardon MB for still including RZA's spot in the box set; his decision to cancel his participation in this tour came just this week.)
Even better, all the pertinent details are included, even the unavoidable Wu-Tang logo, in the set's packaging, leaving the rest of the poster's design available for some always welcome empty space.
All in all, just a phenomenal design.
Think your poster is better? Want to see one of your designs get honored next week? Then go ahead and drop us an email with an image promoting an upcoming show right here. Oh, and be sure to do so at least a week in advance. Thanks!
