We decided to redo the business card because some information needed updating. I gave Michelle 6 options and this is the one she went with (mostly dealing with font, everything else was the same). AND as a surprise to her I added HER PHOTO to it! I hadn't done that on the last one but this photo of her looked so fantastic that I couldn't pass it up.
It was time for an upgrade! My beautiful friend decided to hit me up for a change in her logo. She chose her font and wanted to keep the same colors (because duh, they are awesome) and I took it from there. After four options to choose from, she chose this one. The hardest part... that little swishie underneath Real. No, really. I love making things for her, she's fantastic.
I wandered through some of the older tutorials on Planet Photoshop and found this one about glowly supernova spacey text and decided to try it out. I used a different font and added some beveling and shadow to the text in order to make it more legible. (That's just me.) You can check it out here: http://planetphotoshop.com/sci-fi-text-effect-tut.html. Enjoy!
I enjoy doing different tutorials but it's hard to find good tutorials. I had some issues with this one. If you are new to photoshop and want to check out some great tutorials that are short and to the point, go visit PlanetPhotoshop.com. Corey Barker's tutorials are seriously awesome!
So I thought I’d take a moment and post what Disillusioned Meets Zen would look like if all that black would be turned white. I also used Levels to turn the white in the image, brightening the midtones and making the white areas pop. I then consulted the Little Lady. “Which do you like better?” She prefers the black layout as do I. I feel that people are afraid of the color black. They want white, they want plain, they want pastels. Me? I want black and purples and reds and blues and silvers and all kinds of colors. Using a black background and then splashing color onto it makes me think ‘WOW’ and I absolutely love it. I want to see more black backgrounds out there. I want the layouts on those black backgrounds to use expressive colors instead of muted tones green and blue and gray. Use bright blood red. Use a purple that makes it look delicious. Utilize a blue that won’t kill the eyes but will make them want to see more.
So I’ll be sticking with the black version of this layout. Everyone else can stick with their white/pastel/beige stuff. If you want to live on the edge, come visit me here or at Disillusioned.
This flyer is made for one of my special customers who is also a close friend. I support her dreams of being the best photographer she can be and so I make her the best graphics that I can. I feel especially warm and fuzzy being the one she turns to for all of her graphical needs. I’ve done everything from creating her logo to creating her website (using a WordPress Theme, but hey, it works beautifully for her needs and eventually we’ll get it more personalized). If you happen to be in the NorthEast Ohio area and are looking for a fabulous photographer, she is the one you want to go to. Enjoy!
