Name that Single-One of My Favorite Songs

This one drew me in immediately since I’m a musician and just a music-lover in general.

Create a design for a favorite song by using just simple designs and NO WORDS…Basically a design assignment with the rules in charades. IE: for No Doubt’s “I’m Just a Girl” I would just have a symbol of a girl.

The hardest part of this assignment was settling on a song for which I would create a design. I didn’t end up choosing just one so I did two of them.

Just like the Four Icons assignment, I downloaded icons from the Noun Project then placed them onto a blank image in Photoshop and that was it really.

The first one I did isn’t too difficult to guess what the name of the song is, but it may be a song that not too many people know. I chose this song because its title is also a one of the nicknames that my boyfriend has for me and it just a good song! I hope this post gets more people into this band because they are top five for me and I’ve seen them live multiple times.

The second one that I did may be a little harder to guess because the title isn’t exactly a common phrase, but it is by a fairly well-known band.

Are We There Yet?-Celestial Soirée

This assignment took ages to do, but not because it’s difficult, but because Photoshop can be incredibly frustrating sometimes. I mean, seriously? I only get one (1) undo and redo? WHY? So sans Photoshop’s frustrating qualities, this assignment was actually pretty fun!

I chose a picture from my senior Spring Soirée, yes, a soirée. I went to a private school and we didn’t have prom, but we did have soirées. We thought it was weird, too. This is one of my favorite pictures from my senior year of high school and it never fails to make me smile.

Now for the how to:

  1. Choose a photo for your background (I chose a this picture of the surface of the moon that was taken by the first spacecraft on the moon in 1968)
  2. Choose the photo of yourself that you want to lay over it
  3. Photoshop time! Yay… Open the background photo in Photoshop then place the photo of yourself on the background photo
  4. Erase everything from the photo of yourself except the part of the photo that you want to lay over the background
  5. Place the photo of yourself where you want it on the background and that’s it!
