Research advertising and design examples. Post 3 images in one post to Design Journal, with label Transparency.


Explore ideas of overlay, continuity, layering and mood by creating two digital compositions using shapes and photographic images which overlap one another to show transparency.

This will help see how colors interact when layered, seeing the color mixtures and experimenting with Triad Color scheme.  Primary or Secondary.

  1. Using Illustrator create design made from abstract shapes, which overlap to show color shape from behind.
  2. Second design use photographs to create textured interplay of 2 images. Paste images into photoshop doc, use Opacity levels to control transparency. Erase backgrounds if desired.
  3. Design Journal : Take photos and look for examples of Transparency in the world around you and in Advertising and Design to Post in Design Journal.
