Hello everyone, and Happy Weekend!! Hooray! Sorry I have been so crazy busy. I worked a lot of overtime this week and still had to do school and whatnot. Speaking of school, I have a design to share with you. I wanted to share an example of how I bring my designs from good to great.
I completed some edits that really make it look a lot better. I messed with the images to add some inner and outer glow as well as a drop shadow and bevel. I think this makes them pop a little more while not looking like they are floating off the page. I muted the background color to provide more contrast between it and the foreground. I changed up the font color for the quote because I really wanted it to be navy blue and was told it looked black. The contrast is a lot stronger now and makes for better readability. I also messed with the inner shadow to make it a little more dynamic and match up with the images better. As for the part, "act like an animal" I changed the font as well as the font color. I think this helps with the hierarchy and puts a better emphasis on the entire message I am portraying here. I want people to act like the animals that do not lie! Next, I changed to position of that phrase to make it more a part of what was being said. I wanted to unify it with the quote and did so by placing it next to it. The differences in color help to keep each part separate. Lastly, I brought the text closer to the center to give the format a better top to bottom balance. By doing this I also created negative shapes that echo each other - the negative "L" shape on top of the design flips over and repeats at the bottom of the design.If anyone has any further suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated!!
