  • Marquetry

    I'm wanting to get the effect of marquetry in a design - is this as simple as overlaying wood textures onto vector shape? sorry if this is a really simple question, i may be overcomplicating the process in my head!

    It is probably just that simple. Vary your wood sampling of course so you aren't using the same grain in every piece. Just remember that if you want it to look like real marquetry, it can't be absolutely perfect. Even machine assisted inlays have a bit of a gap here and there. When using computers to illustrate hand crafts it's often hard to remember to put in the faults.

        One of the problems with in-house situations is that, as often as not, the upper management's expertise lies in areas other than marketing, communication or creative. Worse still, is that they don't know...

        This might come across as a snobbish perspective. And I do work in a very weird corner of the design industry, where the theatrical/digital/print world all intersect.
