How I have created my work

I first open the image I wanted to use in Photoshop, using the quick selection tool I draw around the image of myself. Once I selected the area I then inverted the image and made alterations on refine edge.


I have made the background layer green, then I added a gradient layer (from blue to green) which I then was able to add this to the photograph layer by using a clipping mask. The effect I have used is know as duotone, what also help is the quality of the image is good.

Information I have added

(The information I have used is feedback I have received from my teacher over my 2 years of study).


Progress to Date

Debra is developing her production work in areas of graphic design and illustration.

There has been a noticeable improvement in the quality of work, its reflecting industry standard and Debra has shown a greater confidence and understanding in all areas of visual communication.

Tutor Comments

Debra is a hard working student, focused and ambitious. She is growing more confident in her ability to produce graphic design work to a high standard. We are predicting that Debra will gain very high grades this year.

I have asked if Debra needs additional support for dyslexia, but she feels confident without any additional support.

I like the information I have chosen to use on my posters work because it is personal to me and show the dedacation and time I have put into developing my graphic design skills. And on each poster all the information is different and tells a story. Also they relate to the phrase on the posters as well as the symbols I have incorporated in the poster work.
