Flavor of the Month


I’ve been learning how to use Adobe Illustrator and discovered free templates with the font packs.  I have no vision so the templates were especially handy to see what could be done with the fonts.  Here’s a glimpse of the assortment of templates from the Adobe website.

I downloaded the Typography Welcome Pack and used the purple sample shown below.  I had easy success, since all I had to do was change the text.  But anyone can do that – I wanted to learn more – so I created the design from scratch.

 

The end result is shown below. Mine is a variation of the original template in part because I wanted to have my own flair and I couldn’t recreate the flourishes!  I sent the image to my friend Tore with no context.  His reply was, ‘wait, what?’  That was the reaction I was aiming for and hopefully you have the same reaction.

 


I’ve created a new category on my blog called Zig Zag that will encompass similar creations.  It’s the perfect outlet for the ideas I have amassed that had no way of being expressed until now.  It won’t be perfect but it will be fun.  And I am aiming for the ‘wait, what?’ type of reaction.  I’ll continue with my photography/nature/miniatures blog posts while mixing in some of the Zig Zag posts for variety.
