I really enjoyed this workshop which involved creating things using Photoshop and Illustrator. It was my first time using Illustrator so it was good to get some experience with it. The first thing I created was a Facebook banner. For this I chose Belfast as a theme and created a collage of Belfast’s most famous buildings and landmarks. I used some nice effects on each image to give it a bold colourful look.
I used Illustrator to create two posters. Within the workshop we were shown how to use line drawings in a design so I
used this technique in my posters. I was really impressed with how simple Illustrator is to use and navigate because I was used to Photoshop, which I now realise is more difficult to use. I was able to create my posters easily and quickly and they were very simple to change and edit. This workshop has also made me sway towards graphic design as one of my two choices in semester two.
