A Glimpse of Graphic Design
Click here to view my animated poster.
This poster is something I created to help me sell my artwork on-line. I described a few brief steps on how to go about purchasing your favorite pieces. I used two types of fonts on my poster to help entice the viewers eye to keep reading and not overwhelm them with bold text. I used white text on a gray background so the text would be easily visible, but not overpowering.
For the image of the computer screen, I brought in a picture of a Mac computer and traced it using the pen tool. I used the anchor point tool to round the edges of the screen and the apple icon. For the triangles above I used the pathfinder tool. I started by creating a triangle with the shape tool. Then I added thin rectangle shapes on top of the triangle. I selected everything and hit divide. Finally, I hit ungroup and deleted any divided shaped that I no longer wanted.
