A Brand New Day

Now that I’ve actually got some time to myself, I’ve decided to do a little renovation on the Hello World front – which means, NEW COVER!!!

I’ll be honest, I’ve never been too fond of the old one. But I was in a new craft shop in Bedford yesterday (I got way too excited yesterday, running round buying props for photography and everything) and it gave me an idea. I love doing paper cut outs, and have used them for a number of graphic projects during the year, so I thought maybe I could use it in the cover.

Which is what I did! It was fairly simple to make, I drew the characters and objects onto pages from a book and then cut around them using nail scissors (if you do any sort of craft, nail scissors are amazing for cutting out fiddly bits!) Then I scanned all the parts in and assembled them on photoshop, adding drop shadows and a final gradient 🙂 simples! I hope you guys like it! I’m hoping I can use this style again for other books 😀

Final Cover :D

Just out of interest, which one do you guys prefer, old or new? 🙂

Vintage Photo Shoot

Hey folks, long time no see!

I wanted to post up this awesome photo shoot we did for graphics the other day 😀 The back story is that, 3 days before our end of year portfolio hand in, they decided to give us a three day magazine project. Oh the stress.

Luckily, I landed with an epic group and in one day we managed to get the photography, copy, layout and paste up design done and dusted. We found this amazing vintage charity shop just before Steep Hill that had everything in the back, chairs already set up, mirrors on every wall (which was interesting, I kept having to yell duck whenever another team member ended up in the back of a photo). :L Vintage items where everywhere! It was such a fun shoot, and we owe a lot to St. Barnabas Lincolnshire charity shop for letting us shoot there 🙂 And also a massive thanks to our models Holly and George 🙂
