Deconstruction Text

Text graphics are useful – it has the power of both graphics and text. Both are good for communication, but if you put both together and they support the same message then they can be more than the sum of their parts (Think Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups… why an I hungry?).

Fake 3D background image

background 01

Software: Illustrator CC

Tutorial:  Tutvid

Background images are sort of boring. In many cases that are boring on purpose, after all you want to the background not to take over the foreground image. But that doesn’t mean that they have to be boring. This image is on the cool side (I somehow think M. C. Escher would have approved of this image).

Another sort of cool thing is that the image was created in Adobe Illustrator, therefore a vector image. So this image could be made in any size. This makes the background very flexible. Another thing about of the image, it was not created with 3D software – this is a 2D image. So for a “boring” background image it is rather remarkable.
