Now I have to be honest, I accidentally veered off course from the brief on this project, which was supposed to be to create a grunge-style website.
It was all the fault of this photograph of a skater that I decided to use:
I originally copied it into Photoshop with the intention of making the skater a silhouette for a grungy image. However, it was such a beautifully crisp and balanced composition, before I knew it I was adding a thin, clean, narrow font and composing a generally minimalist-style page,
And then I realised that the shape and position of the ramp would make a perfect ‘natural’ footer with just a slight use of the dodge tool to darken the sun rays,
I blended a wood panel background to give the overall image some texture.
Using the text warp tool I managed to create a very simple logo based on the initials for Skate Board Sussex.
