Designing with Photoshop and Fireworks

Hey guys!

Just here to let you know that I've been doing some work recently in terms of designing. A friend of mine asked me to have a go at making him a logo for his WoW guild (I'm sure you all know what that is), so I gave it a go and I think it turned out great.

Here is the finished logo for his guild, of which are really nice people and you should check our their site if you're a WoW fan. I myself, however am not - so I'm only 'advertising' for them!



So, taking a look at it you can see I went with a very nice and "WoW-style" font, and the colours went well with the new expansion. I used a little bit of glow under the text and used a white outline on the black text.

I've also done some more work which I will not post, but another example could be, of course, my blog's header.

Here, again I used pretty much exactly the same kind of thing. I used a modern style font to go with the blog, the glow to bring it out and make it really stand out, and some simple text underneath.

If you'er interested in seeing more, then let me know and I'll be posting some more of my work every time i've completed it.


Want some work doing for you? leave some comments and we can discuss from there :D

Thanks for checking out the blog guys. ;)
