Online Marketing | Madness

Project: Online Advertising Banners

Description: It was a dream to be able to design something for my favorite college sport, Basketball; especially for the big showdown in Houston. The original Houston logo was a little flat this year, so I thought giving the logo the illusion that it was floating in space would jazz things up a bit. With Houston being the command center for NASA, this concept fit nicely. I added the astronaut holding the championship trophy to connect the ideas of NASA and Basketball. In the end, this banner proved effective and this year’s tournament was just as mad as it was out of this world. (more…)

Freebie Wallpaper Design | Om

These days, you can pretty much do anything with Photoshop. This weekend I decided to have a little fun and tried out a few new photo manipulation tricks with some of my old photography. While searching through the depths of my hard drive, I came across a Buddha statue from a temple in Laos and thought it could be really cool to use for a wallpaper. I cropped out the Buddha, grabbed a few elements from some other photos, and pieced together this design. With a few saturation and contrast tweaks, some dodging and burning, and layer adjustments, I ended up with a cohesive photo manipulation piece. Kudos to PhatPuppy for the background texture. If there is enough interest, I would love to share the techniques I used to get this effect. Enjoy! (more…)
