    The bottom one is closest of the bunch in terms of being able to read a d or a 9. But it is also looking like an o at a glance.

    Beyond that, trying to glean the ORDER of the 9 or d is just...

    Signage is never a single driving factor, though it should be considered as being just as important as mobile or print applications. What an odd mindset to have when it comes to branding. Once a logo...

    You can use the IMG link to link something on a photo hosting website, that always works for me. Just copy the IMG link into the body of the comment or post, not in the link feature.

    Christmas cards were printed in October to avoid the Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Christmas/Valentines Day crush.

  • Creating laser effects

    Hello again people!!

    I am producing all the artwork for a new night at a big local nightclub and need to somehow replicate laser effects found in the massive clubs such as BCM (http://www.bcm-planetdance.com/bcm.swf << go to the crew section and look at laser show) i plan to incorporate these scenes on the flyer backgrounds, and into the actual logo but am a buit stuck as to how to go about it. The closest i have been is using Illy's flare tool but even that i can't work out how to alter colours etc ( spot the self taugh) ANY help would be appreciated cheers!

    Bleh. It's been done to DEATH (rays). Need to think differently to get attention.

    Design your flyer with say, an inch of white outside a very generous bottom bleed-- cut on an angle if possible. Take the printed flyers to a place where they do laser welding. Ask them to clamp the pile and cut off the bottom with their units. Or, probably just as good, and cheaper-- just take the stack to a woodshop and bandsaw cut the clamped stack along the trim line and finish with a few seconds of torching to the clamp pile. The burned edge will get their attention.

    See? Get literal, get hot. Get creative with the form. And play up the play.

        I would expiriment with an really soft airbrush set to a low opacity in photoshop. Pick a color and build on it, changing the color closer to white as you go. The picture on the right has a motion blur applied to it too.

            I'd also look into using the pen tool to do make shape layers. From there you can add stroke, glows and other effects and easily re-edit their positions.
