A Portfolio of Custom Designed Graphics
Following is my graphics portfolio, some of these items were custom designed graphics requested by my clients and the rest were designed for my own web pages.
The background and wing was removed with the lasso tool, a wooden crutch designed and placed under the wing to symbolize a penguin with an injured leg for an article on recovering from a Google Penguin penalty.
This star was produced with the star tool in Fireworks with a drop shadow added under the star and text applied on top.
This circle with a slash across it was designed to symbolize preventing a drop in traffic on a website.
This image of a US flag has a rectangle with rounded corners over it with a semi-transparent background and drop shadow under the rectangle so it stands above the flag. Text is printed on top. I applied a drop shadow under the whole image using CSS.
This is a 3-D box with a daisy applied to the corner and then 1/2 of the daisy distorted so it looks like it was bent around the corner of the box.
This is a cylinder with a gradient fill applied so that it has a 3D effect.
This image is a semi-transparent arrow designed to go over video thumbnails. This image was designed in Fireworks with a gradient fill on the arrow. It is set to go on a white background.
This scroll was designed as a symbol of a story teller. The basic outline of the left edge was drawn with a pencil in Fireworks and copied and the copy moved to right of page. Then interconnecting lines were drawn between the two sides and excess lines erased. Then the pen tool was used to outline separate parts in a darker color to be filled with the paint bucket tool using vector graphics. Then a gradient of darker colors on the ends was applied to the image making it appear as shadows under the rolls. Then the letters were added and transformed with the "skew" tool making the right edge of letters appear farther away to provide a distance perspective.
This is a circle with highlights so it looks like a 3D sphere with a drop shadow underneath.
