Category: Experiments


Here I have been practicing using photoshop to impose fire effects onto a photo I found on the internet using this tutorial: http://psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/photo-effects-tutorials/flaming-photo-manipulation/. I will probably use something like this for one of my pictures, probably my cover or contents one. I also experimented with different ways of having the photo by changing the blending mode on certain layers to get the different effects. I haven’t decided which is my favourite as it all depends on which works with the layout better.

In my moodboards I have looked at fire and the patterns created using fire, also I know of some bands such as Rammstien who use fire in their shows. For the name of my Magazine I have decided on “Inferno” as I wanted it to be fire related and having looked in a thesuarus for fire, inferno was the one that caught my eye and I thought would sound the best as a name as it is strong and not too much of a mouthful. For my mast head I was going to have text on fire but then because I wanted to use fire on the cover picture I felt it wouldn’t stand out enough making it less visable to the target audience. So instead I used the idea of a branding iron as it would still work with the idea of fire and seems quite masculine. Because I am using bands such as Rammstien for inspiration I have decided that my magazine will have a masculine target audience aged from 18 to about 25. Here is my first idea for some possible mast heads designed by me on photoshop using this tutorial http://www.photoshopstar.com/graphics/branding-iron/
