We were given the opportunity this week to create a piece that was relevant and meaningful to us as individuals. We had been working with the Art History brush in Photoshop, and I just loved how my adaptation of a skyward shot of some autumn colored trees had come out.
- My original edited image was too saturated to allow the text to come through, so the opacity was adjusted and a pure white text was used to contrast with the busy blue and yellow toned background.
- I decided to be playful with the alignment here to simulate the canopy of a tree for the first half of the quote, and a centered non-warped text to represent sitting under the tree.
- The quotation credit’s color is sampled directly from one of the tree leaf colors in the image
- The white text repeats the color of the lens flare.
- Typography in the first half of the quote and the attribution are the same (Avenir)
- The two portions of the quote are grouped closely together with the same alignment through the center of the image
- Handwritten font choice (A Little Sunshine) combined with lighter weight sans-serif (Avenir) for readability.
- Adjustments to kerning and text warp both horizontally and vertically
