get ready folks for this weeks thrilling episode of vixen ventures!
I made this title/logo image for our radio show. here’s one with just the font and no background if any of my group members want to use it for anything.
I started off by desaturating the image (not completely, just mostly) and putting a layer of color on top set to hue. At first I had the color as a burnt orange, but in the end I made it purple because I thought the cool tone was more fitting to the story.
the trickiest part was warping the text. I rasterized the type layers and then went to edit -> transform -> warp. Then I just played with the shape until I got it the way I wanted. It would have been much easier if my mouse hadn’t run out of batteries because I was left trying to click and drag points with my touchpad. After I got the shape worked out I added a drop shadow and set the spread to 100% to give it a cleaner feel. Then for the background image I decided to play with it more and use an action on it. The action set I like to use most of the time can be found here, and I used the smart sepia action.
Then I just had to save it all and make sure I saved the transparent one as a png
