Just a quick post for the week. Recently I downloaded Photoshop and I’ve been teaching my self how to use it. I bought the student discount version which only includes Photoshop and Lightroom. But if you have a tablet or iPad you can download other Adobe apps like illustrator for free but they have limited features.
I’ve always wanted to learn graphic design and I wished I minored in it at school. I like to draw and I figured why not try to dabble in basic design. I’ve been using youtube tutorials to teach myself. The perfect opportunity came along to test my skills. The surf club at my school is looking for a new logo design for shirts, so I decided to mess around a bit and come up with some ideas. After a few hours, I created these two designs.
They’re pretty simple but we’re a small club and we’re just trying to get our foot in the door. I’ve been obsessed with camper vans lately and I really wanted a design that could be used on a shirt of as a sticker.
Let me know what you guys think of these designs. I posted the van logo on my Pinterest https://pin.it/5SEIaHc if you would like to repin it. (surprisingly its gotten a decent number of repins). My next project will be a new logo design for this site as well as do another site upgrade. I’m hoping to monetize my site by December.
