Project Description

Create a Digital Foil Social Media Post!

Using the digital foil textures you’ve created in the class or from the Glitz + Glam Kit, create a social media post of your choice, utilizing the foil texture applied to a background, design element or to typography.

Your social media post should:

  • list the type of Social Media Post you’ve created, i.e. instagram, facebook, twitter, etc. (link to it too, if you’d like!)
  • incorporate typography
  • incorporate a foil texture as a background, design element, or within your typography
  • be the appropriate size/dimensions for the social platform it’s to be used on (reference the free cheat sheet included in the class)

POST ALONG WITH THE CLASS!

Want to split your project into steps as you move through the class? This will keep you on track to complete your project in no time!

After watching:

  • Videos 1-2: Create a new project + list the type of social media post you’ll create along with what it might say
  • Videos 3-6: Share your first foil creation experiments!
  • Videos 7-8: Share a color version of your foil
  • Video 9: Share digital or hand drawn sketches of your social media layout (before foil is applied)
  • Videos 10-12: Apply foil to your layout and share your final social media post!
