…And the new year brought another new cd. In 2001 the 'Friends & Family 2' compilation is released and supported by another ST tour during the summer.
Once again we had a preview of the artwork of the cd some time before it was released so we got time to work on a new flyer as well as setting up another promo through Europe. At this time all the contacts with the streeteamers are taken through the mailing list and for the first time we're all alone handling all the promo activities as Peter and Ruben left to concentrate only on the work for the official ST webpage.
The flyer promoting the new compilation is quite simple we just felt to have an easy artwork as we had to fill the flyer with all the bands appearing in the cd. As the main image, we selected the classic old ST skull as we didn't really felt comfortable with the cover of the new cd…Just our choice but we think it worked out better! We also felt it was time to do a poster promoting the tour as well and the artwork used on the back of the cd gave us a cool idea…ST was touring again in Europe and we saw it like a bus 'LoadOfFreaks' making stops all over the country. It didn't really worked out in the beginning but we stayed on that idea till it was done and in the end we think we got a good one.
Even if filled with all the tourdates and few other info on the newest ST releases it doesn't loose its visual impact. Just few days before the tour Mike got in touch and gave us the possibility to handle and sell the ST and DT merch to the street team members as well as shops all over EU so we just got a day to work out a small flyer and press it for the tour, that's really an easy one but made things moving and a lot of you guys jut got a great chance to have some cool ST merch!
This flyer has always been at the merch boot starting with this European tour.
All the promo packs sent for this promo included also a flyer released by the European record label that distributed the new compilation.
