Birthday Cards

Project Description

This is the first of a selection of photo-manipulations created for friends’ birthdays. In quiet periods these act as a kind of ‘mini-brief’ to keep my skills sharp. Each one usually takes about an hour to design and execute and the process usually involves:

  • 10 minutes researching the ‘client’ to discover their interests
  • 10 minutes preparing the source materials
  • 40 minutes producing and refining the composition

Many of these are a pastiche of an album cover or movie poster. The resolution of some is a little shonky as I may have had to to scrape the web for a suitable image. Largely Photoshop-based, but there are some vectors in and amongst the pixels.
