Project Description

A photo of you and someone/thing you love!

For this class I figured I would keep the project as simple as it gets. Take your favourite photo of you and you significant other, your mom, your cat, your hamster, your favourite chocolate bar, whatever! Then, mount that photo onto wood, or something else!

There are 3 massive steps to this project.

Step 1:
Introduce yourself, and maybe tell us your occupation. This class doesn't just appeal to designers or photographers, so I'd love to know what you do! It doesn't need to be super personal, maybe just your first name and your occupation. Or get personal, whatever you want! Just start with this step to get your project under-way!

My name is Jon Brommet. I am a graphic designer and illustrator from Barrie, ON, Canada.

Step 2:
Post your photo you will be using to transfer.

My fiancé and I will be getting married this summer. This is a photo from our engagement session in the fall. This photo was taken by the amazing Samantha Erin. You can see more of her work at


Step 3:
Post your finished transferred piece!

Here are my finished transfers:


That's it!

This class could not be more simple. Also, for the men out there, Valentines Day is coming, this would make a super romantic gift for your significant other. You're welcome!!! Haha.

I can't wait to see your projects!
