Station to Station

November 6th, 2006 by dru

CD101 is a radio station in Columbus that tries really hard to be cool. Every year they have a calendar poster contest and the winner gets some cash and some free prints. After entering for the last two years I’ve realized that it’s more of a popularity contest then a design contest so I’m not sure if I’ll try again next year. Just so nothing goes to waste, I figured I’d share my poster design for 2006. If you notice a lot of the elements in it gave way to the over look and feel of this blog.

This reminds me — I really need to redesign this site because it’s getting pretty old and played out. I’m going to start working on a portfolio site as well that links to this. It will probably replace this URL but I’m not sure yet so stay tuned.

    Very nice sir. Hope you win. Did you send me the design you did last year? I feel like I saw it, but it’s not in any of the posts on here. Wierd.

    Give Ohia a hug for me. I miss it a lot more being on the west coast.

    Actually, this is the one that I did last time. I made one for this year’s contest, I have no idea who won yet. Maybe I’ll throw that on up this time next year. ;)

    Here’s a picture of poster that won it. It reminds me so much of what Scott Hansen (ISO50) does.

    Maybe I’m just bitter.

    The important thing to remember is that CD101 sucks.

    first of all CD101 is a GREAT STATION….a great history of sticking to their guns musically…..and a great history with their listeners and in conjuction with local events…
    also…I happen to know some of the previous winners personally…….one in particular is an AWESOME artist…..and I’m not quite sure how they(cd101) can be bias when the fans/listeners vote> I love the recent winning designs!

    CD101 really is a very good station, coming from Vegas - you guys don’t know how good you have it, really, radio blows in most cities CD101 is damn decent.

    The calendar/posters are usually a mixed bag. I think half of what gets put in that tent for voting is pretty bad - the other half is usually pretty good.

    2005-2006 posters kicked major ass,

    2007 was not very good, crudely designed and horsey at best. Here’s hoping 2008 is a simple well designed treat.
