I feel like that guy who spins the plates on the end of poles, and then has to keep them going so they don’t smash on the floor. So, busy, really. I’m in the process of refitting my commercial site DonCharisma.com. It’s not ready for public viewing just yet.
I’ve always found the best blogging is blogging about what one is doing right now, so here’s a blog previewing my graphic design work.
DonCharisma.com is going to have a new theme. The theme has a sliding banner that’s a slideshow, and an opportunity to show off the pages on my site and what’ll be on each page. The graphic design I’ve done here for blog have helped tremendously to up my game. I like working with overlays and opacity when combining images and text, it’s a very simple technique to get great looking results.
These are all simple white backgrounds with the opacity turned down on the images. I use “guides” in Photoshop to space text evenly, giving consistent border. I wanted a slightly retro-futuristic font.
So without further ado, here’s a preview of the banners I’ve created for (the new) DonCharisma.com :
It’s a first proof, there are some minor changes, but fairly much how I want them.
The above gives an idea of the services being we’re offering on my new commercial site. For now, prior to the site being live, it’s possible to contact me via the form on my “Hire me” page, for any work enquiries.
