INSTAGRAM 10k Announcement Image (.psd)
How To Re-Create This Image:
Today I publish a revised draft of my previous graphic image posted under https://the-pro-dad.com/draft-graphic-design-project/. Some adjustments to the image are obvious while others are subtle. Over the week The_Pro_Dad Instagram account passed 10k followers. Initial feedback for my previous image stated that the message was not evident upon initial viewing. To adjust to this concern, I made the focus image of the Dad & Daughter darker by changing the opacity of the Chicago background image (Free for commercial use: https://pixabay.com/en/chicago-illinois-lake-michigan-1791002/). An obvious adjustment is the movement of the mountain ranges. I moved the mountains much lower on the canvas and reversed the object layer order to display the idea of the focus image moving past the mountains into a new chapter of life located in Chicago, Illinois.
Adjusted is also the text. Instead of merely stating “The_Pro_Dad,” in Futura font, this new image utilizes Instagram logos (free for commercial use through Pixabay: https://pixabay.com/en/instagram-logo-icon-pictogram-flat-1882330/) and a message of “INSTAGRAM, THANKS FOR 10K.” This makes the message of the graphic image visible and drives the viewer also to experience The_Pro_Dad Instagram. For reference, I have included the original images below. Proceed for instructions to re-create this image. (Revised 02012019)
