[FFN] 2 SUBS waiting for your vote - 1 more day left

And they are up for voting!

After a loooong time I'm trying my luck with 2 subs for the Fast Food Nation competition.

The 1st design was created by a colage of royalty free textures and objects, photoshop editing and tweaking to give it its vintage feel and it focuses on industry artificial flavors and smells.

Here is an extract from the book to get you into the concept:

"Grainger had brought a dozen small glass bottles from the lab. As he opened each bottle, I dipped a fragrance-testing filter into it. The filters were long, white strips of paper designed to absorb aroma chemicals without producing off-notes. Before placing the strips of paper before my nose, I closed my eyes. Then I inhaled deeply, and one food after another was conjured from the glass bottles. I smelled fresh cherries, black olives, saut*ed onions and shrimp. Grainger's most remarkable creation took me by surprise. After closing my eyes, I suddenly smelled a grilled hamburger. It smelled like someone else in the room was flipping burgers on a hot grill. But when I opened my eyes, there was just a narrow strip of white paper and a smiling flavourist."

The 2nd design is my second sub for the FFN theme. On a completely different feel and concept. This one is trying to avoid any food related imagery and aims for simplicity. Might not make a great looking t-shirt but I think it does deliver the message.

simply stunning!
Your manipulation skills are second to none. That first image is such a strong graphic! Awesome!!
And the second one is pure simplicity, and you know simple ideas speak volumes!
Bravo, and welcome back brother.
