PHOTOSHOP DAILY CREATIVE CHALLENGE!
April 1st-12th 2019
The Photoshop DCC is a collection of 9 design challenges that everyone can participate in to learn new Ps tricks or scrub up on their skills! I have the wonderful pleasure of hosting them on AdobeLive for 2 weeks! All of the classes I’ve put together are themed around creating assets for your own social media branding. Below is a collection of everything I have been creating each challenge day.
CHALLENGE 1: FACEBOOK ASSETS
For the first challenge I experimented with the Frame Tool to quickly and easily create stylish promo images. This is a fast but good looking technique to employ when you have a social announcement to make and need an eye catching graphic to go with it!
CHALLENGE 2: INTERNET MEMES
I know what you’re thinking... Memes? Really, Val? Yes, I’m Serious! Not only are memes a popular form of internet humor, they are familiar, can be instantly relatable and the formats are widely understood by millions. Creating memes is a great way to convey a feeling or situation with your audience and it gives us the opportunity to experiment with image and text compositions, blending modes, layer styles and image filters!
CHALLENGE 3: TWITTER BANNERS!
Creating a banner for your Twitter page can be tricky, especially if you don’t have illustrations or paintings of your own to use. Following this challenge helped folks create a simple banner with their username and social handles with the Text Tool, layer styles and blending textures!
CHALLENGE 4: SYMMETRICAL ILLUSTRATION
Yay for Spring! Today we experimented with the Symmetry Tool to create some awesome designs! This is a fun way to illustrate frames that can give your promo images a fun, personal touch!
CHALLENGE 5: INSTAGRAM STORIES
CHALLENGE 6: INFLUENCER PHOTOS
CHALLENGE 7: UPGRADE YOUR SQUAD
CHALLENGE 8: BEHANCE TITLES
CHALLENGE 9: GIF/TIMELINE ANIMATION
