Working on a poster to add my resolutions to (having them written down in a sketch book will be no help!)
Still very much work in progress any comments/crit/feedback would be great.

I like the way it's gone through the cubist mangler.
Here's my thoughts:
I feel like this grid-based, distorted type thing is everywhere right now. That means it should be really well executed to grab my attention. The idea of combining this style with your 3D work is a nice idea, but it still needs a little work.
First off, make sure you build a consistent grid across the whole poster, and align all the type to it. Right now, it seems that the copy on the bottom follows a different grid system than the type on the top.
When distorting your letters, think about what kind of emphasis the effect places on your word. At the moment, it reads like "Reeeesolve" to me, which might not be your intention.
What's the format/print of your print? The first view makes it look like it's landscape, but then again the border stays consistent across all the different stages of the gif. Will it be there in the final piece? If you really want to make it landscape, then make sure you spread out your artwork. Right now, the white space on the sides is awkward.
On the plus side, I think your colours work great and the way the "VE" breaks behind that object is gorgeous.
Hope I could help, keep it up!
@Joris Rigerl First off thanks a lot for such in depth crit!
On your first point the distorted (fake scanned) type is everywhere. So much so, that I may not go down that path for the final print.
You have me dead to rights on the grid too — I'll fix that asap!
Also the .gif is a bit deceiving as it will be a portrait print with those large/void areas cropped in. More like this.
At this point the border is staying, just to fit in with some personal branding, but as before this may end up going too (more than likely when it comes to print and I have issues with edge to edge!) :)
Glad you like the shapes interacting with the type!
Again thanks a lot. Very clear and informative crit — much appreciated! I'll hope to return the favour!
Hoping you will take a look at a rebound later in the week! :)
man, that is cool.
