      Mike's Attempts at Graphics

      So, I've been learning photoshop on and off over the last few months. Main reason to create graphics for the events and conventions.


      Finished today, has taken about 7 hours of work from start to finish (main pain has been working out the exact composition to get the intended impact of providing information but not in a manner that is not cluttered). 10,000 of these will be printed out -



      I shall post what I make in here in the future. It will mostly be flyers, conbook covers and so forth. The focus is on ensuring it appears as professional as possible, so a lot of renders, logos and styles will be deliberately reused for the sake of consistency in branding. (Less is more)

      That actually looks pretty cool. I did a poster once in photoshop. It's the only program I use.

      I'm learning GIMP, slowly but surely. I like how you use the solid balloons for the inset pictures and the faded balloons for your text. I think it definitely gets your point across. Interesting text effects on the title.

      Figured I'd show you all some more recent flyer designs, which by and large show my progress (some assets are shamelessly reused of course) -

      You can tell you've gotten better. They are bolder and brighter and look cool.

      Like what you did with the gaming font for LAGC, not sure on the outline for the Liverpool one, but they're both nice and impactful.

      I'm inclined to agree with Purple.

      Re: Mike's Attempts at Graphics

      Developing more of a style for the flyers now. The overall focus moving toward a more "fun and stylised" theme that better grabs the audience's attention better, better puts across all necessary information in a more readable style, and is more consistently branded -



      As always, the "art of branding" is to be extremely lazy and reuse everything to create a common theme and style. Not quite A6 dimensions, but it'll be an easy rework as I template this bitch up for all the 2017 flyers and promotional materials.

      Love the improvement over time. Typography has improved immensely which I think has helped a lot. Great work.

      They look cool.
      I thought the birmingham flyers you sent out on Saturday looked pretty awesome too.
