Retro Poster

Retro Poster - student project

What a great project! Doing it, I have learnt so much that I didn't know before. Up until this course with Meg I could only use PS to edit photographs (I'm a photographer) and apply simple text. But now, I know layers, effects etc and most importantly, the PEN TOOL! This opens up options for being creative. I can't wait to practice more.

I chose to recreate this BOAC poster because it contains blended layers and I used the pen tool to recreate the BOAC logo rather than hunt around for a similar font. I made the clouds with the brush tool and I had to copy the plane from another poster, which I did using the pen tool. I had no idea how to do most of this before this little course. It's not perfect, but I'm happy with it.
