Happy 20th Birthday to Photoshop

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The image editing powerhouse celebrates it’s 20th birthday this month.

As someone who uses Photoshop day-in, day-out and has done so for the past 16 years, Adobe Photoshop deserves a big birthday kiss on the menu bar!!

Quite frankly, I don’t know where I’d be without you?

Many happy returns PS, here’s to another twenty years of cleaning up photos and adding lens flare to my graphics (joke!).

Design Makeover

Posted by: | Comments (0)


Heard of Layers magazine? No, I hadn’t either. That was until I registered my Adobe Creative Suite 4 software with Adobe and they offered me a free, three-month subscription as a gift for registering my software.

The magazine describes itself as a “How to magazine for everything Adobe” and is available both in digital and hard copy. If you select the three-month subscription gift from Adobe, they allow you to download the latest three issues in digital format which you can view onscreen using a software app called Zinio Reader.

I downloaded my three free issues and started browsing through them – to be honest, it’s a pretty good magazine with some interesting tips and tricks and articles provided by professionals who use Adobe’s software.

Each issue they run a really interesting feature called “Design Makeover”. Basically, the publishers of the magazine take a particular piece of existing design (which has been submitted in by the owner), that is serious need of a refresh and ask three designers to provide a ‘design makeover’. The subject of the article can be anything ranging from a website, magazine layout, book cover, piece of packaging or CD cover etc etc.

I viewed this as a great opportunity to get a piece of my design work out there and hopefully generate some leads. So I contacted Layers magazine and made them aware that I would be interested in being a contributing designer to this article.

Low and behold, within the space of a month or so, they asked if I’d have a look at doing a makeover on a company logo and website layout that had been sent in. Below is the before and after…

Before.

After.
