About this course

This class takes a further look into creating abstract designs from images. This time, we'll be looking at how we can turn the most simple of images, in this case a screenshot from an Instagram page, into a planet. 

I will be showing the process from the initial screenshot to forming a planet, with textures and shadows to bring it to life. I will discuss different compositional options and various typographic possibilities and briefly touch on different ways of colouring your design.

Below is a screenshot of my instagram @tomappletondesign which you are more than welcome to use for this tutorial! 


Here is the poster from the video, as well as the initial poster I designed a couple of weeks ago that inspired this tutorial.
