During my first Workshop on Tuesday which was based around Adobe Photoshop skill levels and a small set of techniques and processes. Some of the processes were just a re-capping and refreshing session for me although I have learnt a more effective way to create Concentric Circles.

The Glacier MenThis is the poster is the result of my workshop exercise, techniques I used were, Text pathing, Opacity changes,  Texture overlays, Clipping masks, Repeated patterns, and concentric circles.

I also participated in an Illustrator workshop on Wednesday, a program in which my abilities are not as diverse as in Photoshop, in which most of the techniques Matt provided us with tutorials on were new to me.

Untitled-1One technique we used in creating our info graphic that I managed to attune myself to quicker was the repeated pattern, I used my knowledge of the same technique in Photoshop to create my repeated pattern, I learnt the the use of the varied amounts of brush tools and creating pie charts and manipulating them into an art form.
I felt like these basic skills have aided in creating a better understanding of Illustrator and the scenarios where I would opt to use it over Photoshop due to the different graphic file format and lossless image scaling Photoshop doesn’t                                                                   provide.
