I made a minimalist art poster and you can too!
Want to know what’s easy for me? Making posters in Photoshop, as I’ve done here in full detail.
Want to know what’s difficult for me? Remembering to post these updates on my blog while I’m posting them everywhere else in my digital world.
I’m not sure why I have this disconnect with being able to post my content on various social media platforms at the moment, but then completely disregard my own blog. It’s a strange thing and i need to work past it, but that’s not really what you care about, is it?
What you care about is how I made that last cool poster you saw. Well, maybe this isn’t that poster, but this is definitely a poster, and this time I go into detail about how I do what I do. That said, I have to admit, making these instructional videos of my process is tougher than I expected.
They’re not difficult to make in the sense of creating a screen-grab video of my actions, but difficult in knowing what to say to accurately describe what’s happening on the screen. Sometimes what I have to say about something I’m doing takes far less time than the action. Other times I’m done with the action long before I’ve finished explaining what just happened.
What I’m learning from this process is that instead of trying to describe the entire poster design from start to finish, perhaps I need to break down my process into steps, and then go into detail on that.
That’s all the brain dump you get from me today though, because this wasn’t supposed to be about me figuring out my process. It’s supposed to be about me sharing my process.
I hope you enjoyed the video, and if there’s anything you’d like to see me do more of in these videos, let me know.
