Quick sketches for some business card ideas. More to come.
I posted this to Twitter a while ago but forgot to put it up here! Fancy logo I did for my friend’s animation studio.
Hey Tumblr. Recently I’ve really wanted to create some art pieces that are comprised of different images. Collages or photo manips. The original concept for this piece was a little different, as some who I talked to about might know but I worked really hard and I’m really pleased with the outcome. Let me know what you think!
~75 minutes Photoshop CS6.
Your wish is my command (◕◡◕✿)
I made this the other day when I was
really drunk maybe possibly slightly inebriated and my friends kinda liked it. So I decided to show you how to do it (simple as h*ck).
Step 2. Open it up in Photoshop. I’m using CS5 but it’s probably the same in anything CS2+. Now when you open it, the image will be on a locked “background layer”, we don’t want it to be locked. Drag the layer to the new layer icon in the layers palette to create a duplicate.
Step 3. Add a background texture. I used a lovely grunge texture I got from here. Place the texture onto the document and rotate and resize it until it just covers the entire canvas. Now take the layer it’s on and move it behind “background copy” layer.
You need to change the blending mode of the picture of Mayhem to multiply to remove the white background.
Step 4. Add the the coloured glare. To do this just make a gradient of two slightly different shades of the same colour and lay it over the image of Mayhem in a new layer.
(I used these reds but you can use whatever colours you like).
You need to change the blending mode of this gradient layer too. Overlay works really well.
Step 5. Text. Go crazy with this, whatever looks good right? I used black, 69 point Trajan Pro, with 700 spacing, placed underneath the gradient layer with the blending mode set to Overlay.
Congrats! You’re all done. Techniques like the changing of blending modes and overlaying colours/textures is really simple and you should play around with the different modes to see what kind of things happen for future reference.
I wanted to make an extremely simple logo that I imagined would look good on headphones with flat (black and white) or with a small, three colour pallet. I need to keep working at simple logos.
