Suggestions Post
Fire away!

Things to consider:
  • Flyers
  • Stickers
  • Word of mouth

Member suggestions:
  • Get friends who rap/sing/write/dance to Epik High (covers)
  • Blog about it! LJ, Facebook (think mini-feeds), etc.
  • Black and white flyers for easier printing.
  • Multi-lingual flyers/variations thereof.
  • Take flyers to local record shops, ask them to be put up there.

Personally, as far as flyer designs go, I think tablo made the best suggestion. A few different designs to choose from, which anyone can print and post, would be best. Also, as I was telling essyllus, a minimalist approach might intrigue people more than a flyer crammed full of information.

We'll likely have a design contest for flyers, but first we need to get more people in here! In the meantime, essyllus has drafted this one for us, for anyone who wants to get started. I really love it, it's just what I had in mind. If you guys like it too, we should for sure use it in our official arsenal! ;D

Also, I'm going to need some help. If you're up for lending a hand beyond basic street team duties -- that is, anything organization-related -- let me know! Thanks guys! I've grabbed a couple mods, so we're set on this front. :D

This is what the UK Street Team sort of came up with, but we thought it would be cool if we had t-shirts that we designed.


And I'm up for helping!

Oh, that does sound cool!

Great!! I'm modding you now. ;D
29th-Mar-2009 12:35 am (UTC)
so far i've only done word of mouth... i also did a poet spotlight on epik high on the university of minnesota's radio. that's about as much as i have managed to do though D: my name being in this entry made me feel temporarily important 8D;; BUT ANYWAY i'd definitely put up flyers if someone designed some! it'd be cool if we had some people to translate flyers so we can appeal to non-english speaking fans, especially in the us x)
29th-Mar-2009 12:46 am (UTC)
It'd be really cool to run a poster-design competition!
29th-Mar-2009 01:23 am (UTC)
a poster contest sounds awesome!
we'd probably be able to get some really great designs!
-starts thinking already- * _ *
29th-Mar-2009 04:33 am (UTC)
That's awesome D:! And well, it was a good idea! XD It looks like we've got some interest for a design contest, though I think I need to point more people in the direction of this community before launching anything.

I only speak english but I have a lot of bilingual friends some of who listen to Epik High so I'm sure I could get them to help! We could get it in Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean at least :)
29th-Mar-2009 05:38 am (UTC)
Oh my god, I totally spaced that part of that comment. That's an excellent point! We could have different language variations for each flyer design... Exciting!
29th-Mar-2009 05:54 am (UTC)
That's one area I feel like I can actually help, even though I'm not gonna do anything but persuade XD
29th-Mar-2009 04:06 pm (UTC)
I could maybe help with the Spanish translation.
29th-Mar-2009 01:47 am (UTC)
I'd be willing to lend a hand as well. ^^

-get friends who rap/sing/write/dance into Epik High. Covers, anyone? :)
-blog about it! LJ, Facebook (mini-feeds have become suddenly useful!), etc.
-as for flyers, black and white would be best so people can easily print them.
29th-Mar-2009 04:35 am (UTC)
Cool, I'll mod you now. I think 3 of us should do the trick. ;D

Thanks for the suggestions! I had a similar idea about the flyers. I think a minimalist approach would be more intriguing than information overload, though we'll for sure have some different options.
29th-Mar-2009 05:00 am (UTC)
Awesome! I'm seriously excited for this; I've done projects before for clubs and fundraisers, but this is on a completely new.

I've drafted a flyer. :O?
29th-Mar-2009 05:09 am (UTC)
It's totally exciting, I'm right there with you. XD

That's perfect, I love it! I'll add it to the post for now, but we should have a resource post so people can just check out their options and hit the ground running.
29th-Mar-2009 10:03 pm (UTC)
Cool~ We also need an affiliates post and info on our profile..

Also, would you mind turning off IP logging? ^^
29th-Mar-2009 11:27 pm (UTC)
I'm going to put up a post for what needs to be done (flyer designs, translations.. what else?), as well as one for resources. I don't think we need an entire post for affiliates, because we'll likely only be affiliating with other branches of the street team, or even epik_high.

I can do that. ;) I wasn't aware it was a problem.
29th-Mar-2009 11:46 pm (UTC)
I think that's it for the moment.
Okay, that makes sense. :)

Thanks. I know some people get weirded out by IP logging. :s
29th-Mar-2009 11:57 pm (UTC)
Mmk! Got that post up, but I'm going to wait a bit on the resource thingy, to spare friends lists.

No prob!
29th-Mar-2009 06:58 pm (UTC)
Hi fellow mod :)

- I'm a member of Aria Entertainment, so I'll propose the idea to some of the members there. I know Rosie wouldn't mind, but I don't know about the rest :o YOU ARE THE ONE! xD And I can get my sister to play Fan and One on the piano :o
- PIMPING. PIMPING. PIMPING. Will do much of that :'D
- Black and white would save the world on ink as well :) Laser printing is so efficient :D (Plus it looks nicer laser printed black and white... xD)
29th-Mar-2009 09:41 pm (UTC)
Hi! :D It's nice to meet you. ♥

Ahh, that's really cool! This is the website, right?

We should advertise at EH related communities on LJ. :) But maybe have a project established first? That way, people can be more interested to join.

Yep, I was going for efficiency as well. Though, the black logo still takes up some ink, so other flyer options wouldn't be a bad idea. :)

Would it be okay if all three of us exchange IM/email info? Since we have three mods it would be best if we had a thread where we could all discuss. :)
29th-Mar-2009 11:33 pm (UTC)
My e-mail is blue.gal.sy@gmail.com, which is the best way to reach me.
30th-Mar-2009 10:04 pm (UTC)

Yeah, that's the website - did some research? x3

We totally should - and not just communities, but also other fansites/street teams/etc. If we can get a project going, like you said, like a poster contest or something, it would bring people in, I think :)

I think, if we could invert the colouring of the logo, that would be cool too! I mean, that would save us all the massive black chunk in the middle :o

Yeah, my MSN is jojibear@hotmail.com - btw, I'm friending you :) Both of you xD
29th-Mar-2009 05:22 am (UTC)
Do you want me to post a link to this community at mapthesoul.com?

I've gotten people at least listen to a song or two by putting "Lesson One" and the "Map the Soul" MV as my facebook status before (surprisingly.) I might be able to get some artistically inclined friends to work on covering or flyer design. Or myself, even.

I'm kind of in a bad place right now so I don't think I can do much organizing, take-charge kind of stuff but if you need it, I'll do my best to help!
29th-Mar-2009 05:35 am (UTC)

Oh yeah?? essyllus was just saying how Facebook mini-feeds are useful. That'd be great, though! I'd love to see what you and your friends would have to offer.

Don't sweat it! Anything you can do is fantastic.
29th-Mar-2009 05:51 am (UTC)
It's posted! Do you think it needs anything more? Someone posted a while back about the UK street team so they know what it's about, for the most part...

I'll get on subtle "hey, check this group out.." stuff right now XD
29th-Mar-2009 11:27 pm (UTC)
Looks great! Thanks for doing that.
29th-Mar-2009 05:32 am (UTC)
I'd be interested in helping. I don't know what I could exactly do, but I'd want to help. :)
29th-Mar-2009 05:36 am (UTC)
It's all good! I've got a couple people modding this thing with me now, so we should be set.
29th-Mar-2009 06:37 am (UTC)
Found this through sapphynashi and I just want to say this is a fantastic idea; I'm all about plastering my Asian-culture deprived city with flyers/stickers/whatever.

I can't wait to see where this goes; something tells me it'll be epik. :D
29th-Mar-2009 11:28 pm (UTC)
Hah. XD Excellent, glad to have you here!

Yes! :D Nice idea!
30th-Mar-2009 12:34 am (UTC)
Netlog? Never heard of it, can you link me? (Yes, I'm Dutch xD)

Registering. ^^

We should make T-Shirts
promoting Epik High!
I have many graphic tee ideas,
and we can start designing some
and maybe sell them if we end up making
enough money to make a large quantity.

What will also be cool, if we make the flyers
and go to our local record shop and ask
if they'll be able to put those flyers up in their store.
Many many ideas.

I would spam this community on my myspace
or on my school supplies.
I work with photoshop too. :D
29th-Mar-2009 11:30 pm (UTC)
I think it was jojibear that mentioned t-shirts before, so that's definitely a possibility!

That's a great idea! I'll add it up on the post.
29th-Mar-2009 09:01 pm (UTC)
i love this community! i love all the ideas!
but i need a new printer ;_;
29th-Mar-2009 11:31 pm (UTC)
Is there a library close to you? Sometimes they have printers for use.
29th-Mar-2009 11:20 pm (UTC)
Hey, I edited in a custom layout, added interests to the profile, and added tags. Hope it looks okay. ^^

As for a banner, we need an Epik High or street related one... but for now the sky works I guess T T

29th-Mar-2009 11:31 pm (UTC)
Looks good! Thanks for that.

We do.. Maybe we'll take something out of the flyer designs, once that ball's rolling.
30th-Mar-2009 10:07 pm (UTC)
What would be cool for the banners would be if someone took a photo of a flyer they've stuck on the street with the sort of scene they've placed it in.
30th-Mar-2009 03:06 am (UTC)
For cars? Bumper Stickers? just stickers in general??
I like stickers!
