Burnt logo

Woodgrain texture for retro-revival and maybe for wild-west

Logo “burnt” into wood

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: Photoshop Down and Dirty Tricks for Designers Volume II

I saw this lesson on creating a similar image, but with a Jack Daniels logo. I decided that I had to create a version using the Hudson Bay logo for a number of reasons: 1) it is Canadian, 2) They did brand boxes with the logo, 3) I see a Hudson Bay shop selling their old style branded products almost every day and this is the type of stuff they would have in their store.

Compass Rose


Software: Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Illustrator CC

Tutorial: Spoon Graphics Blog

Most of my images I create for this blog are Photoshop images. There are two reasons for this:

1) I have done more work in Photoshop, therefore I am more comfortable in Photoshop (not that I am uncomfortable in Illustrator) so I tend to look upon experimantial Photoshop images with greater confidence.

2) There are more Photoshop tutorials on the internet and in books.

Therefore, I decided to do this image in Adobe Illustrator, if for nothing else, get out of the normal. It also helps that I have a thing for maps.
