Bauhaus Poster

bauhaus-poster-smaller

Software: Adobe Photoshop CC

Tutorial: Blue LightingTV YouTube Channel

I have not posted anything in a while, so I figured it was time to get something done. A poster was a natural fit (I have already done a baker’s dozen posters on this website). I saw a tutorial on the Blue LightingTV YouTube channel, well it made my desire to get something done even greater. You can see the result.

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.

As seen on some of my other postings, I love doing space based images. So when Blue Lighting posted a tutorial on creating an eclipse image, I guess I could not say no.

Tattoo stye bird

tatoo-bird

Software: Adobe Illustrator CC

Tutorial: Spoon Graphics Blog

Once again, I have chosen an image that was created in Adobe Illustrator, even though my natural instinct would be to create the outline in Illustrator and do the texture in Photoshop. One of the most interesting parts of the image is the texture is masked to the bird shape. Masking in Photoshop is second nature to me, but until this tutorial I had never done it in Illustrator. In fact, although I knew it was possible to do masking in Illustrator, I was not 100% sure how to do it. I guess that is there important part of a tutorial, learning new techniques.

Chalk Text Effect – Rule Breaker Text

rule-breaker_w_Chalkboard

Software: Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Illustrator CC

Tutorial: Spoon Graphics Blog

Creating an image on a chalkboard is now very trendy. At first resturants put out a listing of their daily specials on an A-frame chalkboard. Somewhere along the line it was no loner enough to just list them with your normal hand writing. Now a chalkboard’s message had to include embellishments, fonts, text on a path and banners. Now a whole industry seems to have grown around having the best looking chalkboard outside your store.

Art Deco Design

Art_Deco-gatsby

Software: Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Illustrator CC

Tutorial: Spoon Graphics Blog

This image is inspired from the posters used in the movie The Great Gatsby (2013) starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Since I did not see the movie, I am not sure if the art deco design was used in the movie or just in the marketing.
