My latest project was developing a digital banner for Lone Star Chorus’ “Peace, Love, and Barbershop” show announcement. I had fun with this one, and used Adobe Fresco (for the water color background and grass), Adobe Illustrator (for the sun and notes), Adobe Photoshop (for the botanical layers), and finally Adobe inDesign to make a manageable file size. I flip through the apps because each one has a specialty and it is easier to do certain elements in different apps. Not only do I keep familiarity with each app with regular usage, I also see which app works better to execute my ideas.
The banner is sized at 1920×1005 pixels to optimize for use as a Facebook event. To make a printable flyer, I played with the elements to make a lower coordinating panel, leaving a white section in the middle for readability.
