Design a Cool CD Cover with Fresh Retro Inspired Effects

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends. We’re so glad you could attend, come inside, come inside. Today’s Photoshop tutorial will show you how to create some retro style effects, such as the classic “retro rainbow”, but with a fresher, cleaner, and more modern style. These effects are part of a complete CD Jewel Box Cover tutorial. I’m hoping that at the end of the retro rainbow I’ll finally find that Leprechaun that stole my vodka two weeks ago.

Make a Print Ready Easter Greeting Card from Scratch

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Easter is upon us, and what better way to celebrate then by sitting in front of the computer and learning new Photoshop techniques for creating festive holiday greeting cards (at least it will get you away from the Wii for a while and let your knees recover from the balance board step-ups – amirite?). By the way, if you happen across the Easter Bunny, ask him if he saw that Leprechaun that stole my vodka last week. Anyway, today’s tutorial will show you how to design most of the Painted Egg Greeting Card.

Draw a Clip-on Style Navigation

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Friends, are you tired of your navigation never staying up? Post-it note navigations lose their adhesiveness and fall flat, scotch tape navigation can tear up your background color and leave a sticky mess, and push pin navigations leave awful holes on your website! Now, you can have a tidy clip-on navigation that will stay up as long as you like with no messy glue or ugly holes left behind! All you will need is a copy of Adobe Illustrator, a block of wood, a doughnut, a ball of twine, three nails, a club sandwich, a bucket of ice, and a hatchet as sharp as the devil himself.

Required Items:

Adobe Illustrator, a block of wood, a doughnut, a ball of twine, three nails, a club sandwich, a bucket of ice, and a hatchet as sharp as the devil himself

You can download the Nature Care Template and it’s tidy clip-on note navigation, with full PSD source files and sliced table free HTML pages for this template in BoxedArt’s members section, as well as thousands of other website templates and web design products. Get a membership here. (more…)

Moving on, this is the tutorial will show you how to design the wood grain style logo of the St Pat Promo Flyer.
