ASUS ProArtist Awards 2023 Part 03

Further to my previous post, I have now added colour to my design and I am soon looking into adding tree and vegetation which I really think will be able to bring it to life. I have made a few colour changes along the way, but this may be looking to alter a lot throughout the design process.

ASUS ProArtist Awards 2023 Part 01

Brainstorming for the ASUS ProArtist Awards 2023.

“Seeing An Incredible Future”

For a theme based on “our environmental hopes and aspirations”, I feel as if this is perfect for me to explore either Photoshop or Illustrator to create a beautiful digital piece inspired by what I imagine our future to look like. This theme has made me reflect upon my previous university work, from my Major Project Synthesis, to my Dissertation and a few graphics I created throughout my research.

I want to explore this deeper and create a radical visual of what our future in cities can look like if we were to incorporate nature back into our cities.

I hope to show that whilst the visual may not be that of reality, it is important to connect with nature within our cities to help create a healthier, sustainable and renewable future.

Graphic Design Masterclass

To deepen my knowledge on graphic design, I have been taking a Graphic Design Masterclass course on Udemy produced by Lindsay Marsh. So far, we’ve been learning typography, its history and now I am onto Photoshop tutorials.  

I have been using Photoshop for nearly 8 years now! But it’s been very helpful to see new photoshop features and tips and tricks I didn’t know of. I have been mainly self-taught in this, creating book covers for stories I liked when I was younger and doing digital paintings for school projects. I was able to use Photoshop throughout college, university and during work. It is such a powerful tool and reflecting on how much I have taught myself over the years, I’m really proud of myself!  

I can’t wait to continue this course and learn more tips and tricks (and soon get back into Illustrator and InDesign). Watch this space for more graphics!
