GFEST 2018 Launch

I started to volunteer for this oranisation called “Wise Thoughts” which is dynamic local, national, international art initiatives and delivers services to help address social justice issues and needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) and Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.

Founded in 1999 and based in Haringey, North London, Wise Thoughts has organised London’s LGBTQI cross-art festival, GFEST – Gaywise FESTival ®, since 2007. Haringey LGBT network was managed by Wise Thoughts.

I feel extremely honored and proud to be volunteering for such organisation. I am an aspiring graphic designer and this a great opportunity to test my skills.

I have quite a few animated typography versions too, which I am adding to this post.

Part of the job is also to create a social media banners. I have created some of those too.

At the end I am adding poster for this fantastic event.

While Daydreaming The Time is passing by : Double Exposure Cinemagraph

I am trying to expand my skill base. I have always liked the double exposure effect on the photos.

In  this case I went bit further and created cinemagraph. I have followed a tutorial on YouTube, but used my own photo plus I have downloaded a different video.

Down below I am adding my first one, but it is in black&white which wasn’t how I wanted it, but I made some mistakes during creation.

 

London Panorama

Apart from creating movie posters and etc. I also like taking photographs. One photo is never enough to capture the whole view. I wanted to fix this problem which can be quite easily fixed with Adobe Photoshop application.

I created three panoramas all three are from slightly different position. I hope you will like them.

Coffee Shop flyer

I have created this Bi Fold Coffee Shop Brochure using Adobe Photoshop. Sadly I can’t drink coffee any more as I can’t sleep after it, but nothing is stopping me from creating a flyer about it.

New Movie poster

I am posting this new movie poster. Well the theme is dramatic again and this time London is featuring in it. Experience told me I am not genius and I still need to learn a lot so this poster as the previous one was created with help of a tutorial. It is not an exact copy, but result is very similar the original I was learning from.

With this information revealed I can’t take all the credits for it’s creation.

Drama movie poster

I think I am  going to stop making these posters, but I am having far too much fun with it. This one is a drama movie. In the future I will have to work more on the credits of the movie meaning fake credits.
