I’ve had this post saved in my drafts for ages (you can tell because look, it’s the old-style vsco screenshots!) but found myself too caught up in #The100DayProject to finish it. Now that I’ve posted all 100 days and #100DaysofGraphique is done and dusted, I thought it was time to get this one ticked off my never-ending to-do list. One step at a time, hey? You might have seen this kind of post from other...

It’s crazy to think that I am the same age as Photoshop – Happy 25th Birthday! I don’t think that I knew Photoshop existed was until I was probably 15, but I wouldn’t have actually used it properly until I was 18. Now I can’t imagine my life without it – primarily as a Graphic Designer but also as a blogger because it’s not just design folk that use Photoshop now. Anyone can thanks to google...

Yesterday Mitch Goldstein (who if you have twitter and don’t follow, you need to NOW) tweeted this video and I just wanted to share it with you because it made me smile: FYI, I’m a Graphic Designer. Apparently it’s a ‘cool’ job? We’re so creative and mysterious – who even knows what we do all day? Menus and logos and things like that. Pamphlets and DJ flyers. Logos, stationery and soap. Letterheads and logotypes. We’re...

This project is nearly at a close now, with the deadline looming (like it seems to be for just about everything!) I have some work to show! Basically the brief was to create a book cover in the style of the classic Penguin series, using 3 randomly wikipedia generated subjects. My 3 subjects are: Telephone, New York City and Madison. We then had to search for a life source image and along with 2 other (1 photographic...

‘The student essential’. I hate the stuff (and Red Bull) but some people depend on it to keep them awake (Mr Ribeiro!) The ‘Final Major Project’ of my first year (OMG it has gone so fast!) of my BTEC course is to design a Relentless can image. Everyone in my class has been given an art movement of the past to influence our design and I have got: Die Brucke – German Expressionism. The movement...

Haha, thinking up the cheesy title’s makes me smile 🙂 The next Photoshop project for Luke is to design a screen splash (start up screen bit) for Adobe Photoshop CS4…. using only the colour we’ve been given (as well as black and white). I’ve got Reflex Blue (below), and am quite happy with it…. but I want to make sure I do something totally original…. no water or dolphins – SO CLICHE! I’ve got a...

As a Photoshop project I had to design an Annual Report front cover for a company that sells everyday products (to make a point that Graphic Design is not always glamourous!) I was given the company ‘WoodPrime’ – a company that sells Creosote, wood protection. One of my ideas was to create a graffiti effect by using stencil art graffiti to create a wooden fence effect on a wall. After some research in Banksy and...
