Photo Manipulation, Page Layout
The client wanted a "WOW!" sunset for the cover of their seed catalog. One problem...Ag Printers did not have any majestic sunsets in their image library. Eight covers from three other designers were rejected before I was asked to put my projects on hold to take over. I looked over the client notes, studied sunsets (colors, shadows, highlights, etc) and then jumped into Photoshop.
The painting took the better half of my workday, but it WOWed the client and was approved without a single revision requested.
The digital painting ended up being used numerous more times throughout the season. It highlighted brochures, mailers and display boards for marketing and sales shows.
