Flyer of the Week and New Mix: Certified Bananas at the Rub
The Rub with Certified Bananas Venue: Southpaw Date: Saturday, May 5 What To Expect Based Solely on the Flyer: Bananas! Potassium. Bananas! Designer (a/k/a text adder): Ayres Haxton a/k/a DJ Ayres Photographer: Doug Fishbone
Backstory: "Busted! I just jacked that photo and put my text on top of it. Here is the original image," Ayres writes in an e-mail, " which I originally found by Googling 'bananas.'"
Concept: "Flyers with the Brooklyn Bridge on them are clichéd, but a photo that good with 10,000 bananas in front of a Brooklyn landmark was just too perfect for Certified Bananas at The Rub."
More random info: "We don't print physical flyers for The Rub anymore because it is always crazy packed, so it was just be a waste of paper, but we still like having online flyers for appearances' sake."
Humble photo-jacking disclaimer: "It's weird to be get attention for a flyer design because I'm a DJ who just designs stuff when it's last minute and it's too late to hire anyone. I usually get real designers for important stuff. I'm glad you like it, though!"
