Design Assignment – Movie Trading Cards

The gang trading card

While it might not be from a movie, I thought it would be fun to create a trading card for the current TV show I’m binge watching on Netflix: Sons of Anarchy. As the week has progressed, I’ve become better at layering images on top of one another using the tools at freephototool.com. I first started with a background image slightly larger than the screenshot that I got of the characters. Then I added in the screenshot as the second layer. The 3rd layer consisted of a cartoonish action bubble to contain the words “The Gang”. The words were then my fourth and fifth layers. I initially thought that this assignment would be more time consuming than it was. I’m glad it didn’t take too long and that I enjoyed working with the tools in the process. It makes me want to download a real photo shopping application.
