Last night, I unleashed my Photoshop powers and created some slides for my church. Enjoyed listening to Lauren Daigle’s Look Up Child album while working.
Christian radio about killed Lauren Daigle for me by repeatedly playing her older music, ALL THE TIME. Daigle’s new album is fantastic though. Drawing vocal comparisons to Adele, I appreciate Lauren’s thoughtful lyrics. Give her a listen below:
Also, here are a few of the images I cooked up for church:
Hope ya’ll are having a fantastic Wednesday! Stay warm.
The digital stove is about to boil over with two projects I’ve got going.
.: Graphic Design :.
First up, designing a billboard! Totally new territory for me. After asking some of my graphic designer friends, working in Adobe Illustrator is going to be the way to go. I have never dabbled in Illustrator before, but I have Photoshop skills, so this will definitely be a learning experience. I’m excited.
Back in mid-2011, I decided that I wanted to go into the field of web design. I was unsure exactly what this looked like but I knew that I wanted to move towards web design as a career. Forward motion equaled setting some goals. So I set up two lists: 1)filled with basics that I needed to know; 2)filled with advanced knowledge that would eventually be needed.
Photoshop (needed to brush up on my skills)
A friend of mine, that does web design for a living, pointed me to W3Schools. I quickly found myself consuming their XHTML tutorials. This went on for awhile until I eventually ran out of steam. Turns out that while I was learning great stuff, I really didn’t have a good place to apply it. I needed to build an actual web site.
