PROGRESSION REPORT 2 – YAU YAT WAY I14006662
Today, I just created my poster design for my assignment. For more information about my poster design, please refer to my group proposal.
First I created a A4 resolution sized picture and colored it with a black background. Then I went to the internet and search for some earth’s images.
Then I carefully remove all the surrounding disturbance of the image and perfectly cropped it out, then I inserted into my pitch black poster.
After that, I went to internet again and found a beautiful nature landscape design. I inserted the picture into the poster as a newly created layer and move it to the below part of the image. I added a layer mask on the image layer and use the gradient too to make the image look like it faded into the poster design. Then, i created two brightness editing mask. I used the gradient tool again to separate the brightness value of the above and below part of the image. I darken the value of the above part and brighten it the below part.
I found a dark skeleton in the internet and inserted it on the above part to make the scene look more dangerous and hopeless. This image also has it own layer, then I added a layer mask on it and use the gradient tool again to make it fade in to the poster. I darken the value again for the image of skeleton.
I created a text box and inputted : “YOU ARE NOTHING” , this small sentence is the entrance and focus point of the overall poster design. It gain the audience attention and encourage them to continue reading the following messages. The subtitle of the image will be : ” NO MATTER HOW SUCCESSFUL YOU ARE ” and “IF THE EARTH IS DEAD “. I decreased the opacity of the letters to make sure the skeleton on the backside didn’t get blocked.
Lastly, I added a reminder on the below part of the image. The audience will feel very sorry and regretful after seeing the words from above, so that I remind them that there is still time to protect the earth being destroy by doing the 3R’s ( Reduce , Reuse and Recycle ).
The poster will be placed at this location:
