Media arts internship February 13, 2015

I continued work on the March Madness logo, which I was told looked liked it was created in PowerPoint and was demonstrated to me. So I went back to work trying to un-PowerPoint it. I was given a few sites to review for ideas and I decided to do a little research on Pattern Overlays and textures. Before I did all that though I decided to split up the text and I added a cutout filter to the image behind it to give it a more artistic look. I also added a gradient overlay to the background using the sites blue and orange colors. I then decided to give the word, “madness” a different font and give it a gradient separate from the other words. Here’s what I came up with:

I’d like to add a texture to the rest of the words so I’ll work on that next.

Here are the sites I looked through for inspiration and research:

How to Apply Patter Overlays Using Photoshop Layer Styles - John Shaver - tuts+
