Hello there. I am Terry and I am a full-time undergraduate based in Singapore. I take photos, write a blog and design websites.

And no, I'm not a teddy bear.

Double negatives make a positive. I was inspired to create this poster after reading a handy tutorial posted by Rames, titled 3D Typographic. I never knew Photoshop can work magic like that! After designing the 3D typographic effect, I moved on to creating the lens flare, the glowing orbs, the radiating lines and the lighting + glowing effects. It’s pretty neat when you combine the tips and skills you’ve learned from multiple online tutorials! Mine is not effectively a poster since it is in landscape format instead of in portrait… but I love it that way. I am actually glad that I didn’t join the competition because back then, my photoshop knowledge seriously sucked (it still does now, although not as bad as before).

Of course I’ll have to credit Veerle too! She held this ‘What is graphic design’ competition a couple of months back and the entries she received served as the basis for my poster. And my, the winning and selected entries are really, really awesome! Inspiration also came from Juanma Teixidó. His entries are absolutely stunning. Of course, my pick will be his winning entry, the one on the right!

Below is a collage of how the entire poster was made… groundup! Of course I veered off course for many times somewhere in the production giving me effects that I didn’t like, so it was a helluva trial-and-error when it comes to making this poster.

The process of designing the poster.

A little tip: in case you’re wondering how did I do the lighting effects, it’s actually just playing around with blending modes. Try using overlay, soft light, color dodge or color burn – and experiment with them. Once you know how they work, you’ll definitely love them!

p/s: My finals are within two weeks and it’s crunch time!
