Graphics have never prevented me from buying a pedal, but I think they're certainly important. Having something that functions, sounds and looks great is the best, it's the full package!
Could you post some of your designs?I for one would seriously help out any small boutique pedal maker dirt cheap just to ensure their product looks as good as it sounds.. I also know that once the lights go down and the stage lights go on, the only thing that matters is tone. I get it.. But it still bugs me. Just my two cents.
These aren't pedals obviously, (So don't flame me for posting non-pedal related work dudes, the man asked) BUT it's a sampling of illustration/design I've done on commercial products.. Do I think all of these would look great on a pedal? No. But you alway have the back and forth between your vision and what the client wants.. If I did pedals, I'd go a lot simpler than these basically because you're dealing with a lot less real estate.. Tone Tattoo is again a great example of over kill.. Too much crap going on.Could you post some of your designs?
