For this post I have prepapred a new tri-fold dentist brochure. The design was created by combination of Adobe InDesign, which is best was desktop publishing such as in this occasion.
The logo was created using Adobe Illustrator as it is a great tool for vector works.
Some small adjustments were done using Adobe Photoshop.
The topic is “Dentist” is tough one as I don’t know a person who likes going to the dentist, but that doesn’t mean there is no need for a dentist brochures.
At the beginning I knew I had to create a name and logo for my mock-up dental practice. I wanted to create business cards, t-shirts for a staff and maybe some branded items such as mugs and maybe cups for customer’s toothbrushes.
The image below is illustrating my search for ideal logo and name.
I was happy with my logo and I really liked the name. In this stage I could proceed to the brochure design itself.
By creating this work I was thinking I will overcome my personal fears of dentist.
As a professional I have also created some different colour version to my design.
I wanted to see how the text would look in white, therefore I have also created one version with white text.
I was very keen to use my logo while creating business card for the members of te staff working at the clinic.
Every company should offer a branded company T-shirt I have also created these.
The cards are bit bigger than in real life size, but that would be hard to see the design, therefore I have decided to make them bigger for this very reason.
I have to sayI have few reservations towards the final design and I can see I will have to adjust few thing as it has quite a few mistakes, but this what I have created for now.
If you think the right side looks considerably smaller you are right, it is smaller. It is due to flap which will be folded in. I will do another post later, probably tomorrow where it is going to be clearer.
I have created this brownie menu in Adobe Photoshop. I have mentioned in earlier post I have always thought that for creating this type of document it is best to use Adobe InDesign, but it is possible to do quite decent job using Adobe Photoshop.
In real life I don’t like brownies, but nothing is stopping me from creating a menu for them.
I have also tried to research if brownies have some health benefits and below is the information I have found.
Some of the healthy nutritional facts about brownies are:
Improves heart health.
Refreshes your mood and keeps you healthy.
Slows down the aging process.
Low cholesterol level.
Helps in controlling blood sugar level.
Provide deep sleep and improve sleeping disorders.
Hello everyone or whoever is visiting my site right now. I have now realised I have got a taste for creating posters now. I don’t mean anything happy or family thing, but some darker stories.
Since following couple of tutorial now it seems much easier than was my initial thought. This last creation is something between a horror story or thriller.
The images used are actually mine they have been taken at The Barbican. It is one of the corridors there I don’t thing I would be able to find my way back there, but at have the photos. Everything used is included within Adobe Photoshop so you all can have a go and do it too.
My next attempt will be even better as there is definitely space for improvement.
Over the past years I have done number of Photoshop courses. If I try to remember the very first time I encountered Adobe Photoshop I am talking about somewhere around 2000 when I was still at high school. Back than I couldn’t do much I was happy with opening, closing and saving my document, but things are better now. If I am counting right it is 18 years it sounds like somebodies whole life.
I can use the application, but there is still lots I need to learn. I have created my first restaurant menu using Photoshop. I have always thought the best application to use for this is Adobe InDesign, but that is quite tricky software to use as there is quite a lot of rules which need to be followed to be able to use it successfully. Sometimes I think I just haven’t got the patience for it. Enough talking here is my menu.
So I have done so far only exhibition posters now I have decided to do a movie poster. We live in times of learning anything with youtube.com as I have to admit I do the same. I know it is not fair, but I need to learn the tricks somewhere. This poster is also created with help of a tutorial. I have changed the model title and text too.
If you have seen some of my posters or other works before the face might be familiar to you. I have been using myself as guinea pig I will not sue myself and I am always available.
This post is not about graphic design theory ,but about being playful and looking at generating inspiration applying very basic methods.
I have recently discovered that although I have spent past two years trying to learn graphic design I don’t know much about it yet. I am coming from art background and doing creative things is something I do since I was seven years old.
Two years ago I have finally discovered that to remain in creative field and survive I need to do something what can generate income. Shortly the graphic design became my main focus and I wanted to learn it and retrain myself.
I have done several course and since money were and still are bit tight I couldn’t afford to go to university. I am than improvising and doing max 1 year courses and now I went for something even shorter and that is one week. It is a Graphic Design Summer School at City Lit, where anyone can try anything and maybe make a career change after.
Now I feel I have written enough and it is time to show what we did the first day.
We started with this a creation of letters from a geometric shapes. If you wonder what they are they are all ice cream flavors. I think it looks really cool. There was about nine people so this is what we created.
In the afternoon we did something else which was also brilliant. With the previous exercise we couldn’t choose the flavor it was random pick and same applies for the second exercise.
All the words above are consisted from nine letters and all are a collage of letters from magazines. I think this idea is just great when one is stuck over some design work this can really help to get moving.
Last task was slightly different each of started with one letter and than passed it on to the person sitting next.
