This is a project I started in September. It kept getting moved to the back burner for other things to get done. This is a first draft. But it’s done using Anime Studio 8 which I learned for this specific video.
I decided to continue to record the remainder of the layout for this job. I wasn’t going to because all it really is is cropping photographs I took and placing text. But I think it helps to give a better understanding of how long placing 6 items in a flyer can take.
They do a LOT of direct, permission based email marketing here at the Campus Bookstore at Queen’s University. As a result I need to pump out a lot of email newsletter designs. Here is all the design’s I’ve done so far. I want to be as forthcoming as possible so I am not weeding through them for the best of them. This is all of them in various stages of completion. (Some have not been sent out and therefore do not have products in them yet.)
It took longer to take the photos and crop them in Photoshop than it probably should have. Maybe I could have used a green screen and some sort of innovative mask in AfterEffects that I don’t know about. Oh well, I think it’s definitely something, anyway. 🙂
I’ve got about 10 videos that I have to make and remake. It’s pretty exhausting stuff to have to do! You’re not just thinking about the layout of a single image, or multiple pages but of an entire, movement based, design. Check this out. You can see I get a little lazy near the end cutting corners due to time constraints. (Fonts, text, etc.)
