Week 5 Design Challenge: Complete!

This week’s design challenge was to create something in black and white.  I had a lot of fun with this project and kept it as simple as possible.  I also got to play around with the Free Transform tool in Photoshop and am happy with the results.

Program used:  Adobe Photoshop

Images:  Creative Commons image search

Font:  Neutra Bold

Adjustments made:  Added a black & white cloud layer, using the “soft light” blending mode, opacity set to 86%.  The text was then converted to a shape then using free transform>perspective, I adjust the text to make it look like it was climbing and disappearing into the building.  I then created copies of the text to give it a 3D look, without using the 3D option.  I’m not really a fan of using 3D in Photoshop, but then again I haven’t played around with it that much.

If I go back and do anything different, I would add a drop shadow to the font.  This is something that I didn’t think about when I was putting the finishing touches on my design.

Here is the final product.
