Billboard Design: Part 1...



We will soon be doing a tutorial on billboard design which will feature work in Photoshop as well as bit in Illustrator. You will be okay if all you have is Photoshop though or any editing program that allows for some customization of the characters, such as kerning. One thing I like to do when I get a new project is study it a little and learn what it is all about. Here are some visual examples of some I have done over the years (can you Guess my favorite?)

That last image is sort of started by adding in the logo. The Image is at a decent aspect ratio to begin with. That is always something to be certain of with billboards, as the come in many different shapes and sizes. But, for what we want, that will work fine and there will be more on the aspect ratio stuff in the tutorial later on. Here is another example of an image in decent aspect ratio...and the final edit it was cropped from...

Remember too, that billboards and posters come in different shapes, which are their aspect ratios...
