DS106 Wallpaper

ds106

For this design assignment, I had to create a ds106 wallpaper. I wanted to try something I’ve never done before in photoshop. I’ve always wanted to try a shattered glass look on a text but never got around to trying it. So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try it. Here is the final product. Overall, I am pleased with how it turned out.

I ended up editing this once more by adding a bullet hole to it (Bond’s idea). I did everything in photoshop. I first put DS106 in regular letters and then used the polygonal lasso tool to pull the letters apart. I found an image of online and used the image to cover the ds106 letters. I put a glass breaking image behind the letters to give it a shattering effect. Then I threw the bullet hole image on top of the O.

  1. It’s a cool effect. I feel like there should be a bullet hole in there somewhere, but maybe that’s just me. I would like to hear about how you went about creating the image though.
