Our favorite flier of the week is for yet another summer festival. This one is called Module Overloaded and it is happening August 1 at the Toad Tavern, featuring the lineup so clearly illustrated above. And it's the integration of the typography into the image above that caught our eye on this one. All too often the type and images on fliers are competing for attention. This lovely piece of work solves that problem by warping the text into its bold, line-art inspired picture. And it does it without compromising legibility -- no small task. It doesn't hurt that the image itself it so expressive -- we love the look on this guy's face. It's also very cool that he's holding a grenade with a pin between his teeth. We like things that go boom -- a side effect of being so totally metal, I guess. No need to click on the pic for a bigger version -- this is showing full size already.
