I've got to admit that I'm really enjoying these daily design challenges. I hope my readers don't mind the addition of these small designs to the blog each day. Don't worry I'll still bring you solid content as I run across it and news and updates from the design world as it unfolds. Tonight's design is reflective of the "blizzard" conditions we are experiencing tonight. That being the case, this bookmark was created solely in Photoshop, using snow brushes from Brusheezy and then just simple shapes. I used blending modes and layer effects to add shadows and highlights to the pole, snow drifts and the location side. If you like this bookmark, you can download it here. Smashing Magazine issued a challenge to designers for the new year, and I'm on board! I tried to decide what type of design I'd want to do and could stretch my boundaries as a designer. So in answer to this Challenge, I will be designing and posting a new Bookmark design each day on this blog. The Designs will link to a downloadable PDF that you can feel free to download, print out and share as desired.
