May We Die In the Forest Inspired

The tag line "May we die in the forest" was sort of funny, and one night messing around with Photoshop I decided to make a desktop background for the computers at my weekend job (can you guess what I do on the weekends?)

I thought it was funny, but my boss disagreed and took it down when he first saw it a few days later. Seemed kind of a waste not to show it somewhere, so here it is!

    You should avoid using cheap photoshop effects. The papyrus font doesn't work at all.

    Seriously, the fonts you used and that noise filter cheapened what was a fairly decent shield design.

    The noise is actually kind of confusing for me. I have no idea why it's there. Next to that, the fonts don't bother me nearly as much. It was a funny idea though, and I like the design of it otherwise.

    preaching to the choir here, get rid of the effects. all of them, including the embossing and the weird white spots on the shield. nice execution otherwise, though

    Wow, you actually get responses in this forum, I'll have to post here when I actually have something decent. Thanks for the comments.

    One of the weird things about this one is that it actually looked good on the cheap ass monitors I had at work. At home here I have a Dell Ultrasharp (meh) and a really nice 24 inch Samsung, and these look like crap on them. Too bad there isn't any "cheap ass monitor" filter effect in photoshop, haha.


    Thanks again

    ?

    I don't understand. 1. I've worked on cheap, non-LCD monitors, and the only differences were color. 2. If you did, why would you apply the noise filter anyways? [strike]3. And this sort of thing generally goes in the doodle thread.[/strike]

    I'm sure the pun is great at work, but for an actual finished something, those colors are really abrasive on the eyes, and the background distracts from the design. Black and yellow generally equates to roads, bees, and signs, and means "warning." Calm down the colors and I wouldn't hate seeing it as a desktop.

    Also where do you work that the valets are the ones handling the bell carts and not the bell men?

    Because who wants to pay 2 people for a job that takes only 1?

    I really think this kind of thing needs to be crisp, vector goodness - the noise and drop shadow only detract from it. And I second the dig against Papyrus. Also, the title-case doesn't really do it for me.
