I Love Photoshop.

Many of you have emailed me to show more of my work. I’ve always had a hard time presenting what I do, but I’ll try and get better at this.  Last week, I shared some of the packaging I did and how I was busy creating bilingual English/Chinese labels. So this week, I’ll let you in on what I enjoy most about my freelance work—using Adobe Photoshop. I love working in this program. (However, I dislike, immensely, having to upgrade it every year to keep up with my clients… it is so expensive for a starving artist like me!)

The image below is a rendering I needed to create. My client has a presentation at MTV in China and needs a photograph of the product. However, I recently created the labels (Friday) for this product and there is no time for printing the labels and then having a photo shoot. This happens a lot. So I was additionally hired to create an image of the product as well. And of course, from scratch. Well, not totally from scratch. The only image I was provided with was the plastic cap!

The image below is the rendering I created for my client’s product vials, a quick display box and superimpose the new labels and place them in the box—one of my most favorite things to do.

Below is a rendering of the full line of products. Again, all I had was the cap. (FYI – the product is a high proten drink or “shot.” And the container is already defined. If it was up to me, I’m not too keen on the “vial” feel. But I’m not the client, just a lowly designer.)
