Boarding Pass & Type

Boarding Pass & Type

▫️
Redesign a airline boarding pass. by manipulating the graphic and typographic elements. The size of the pass must remain as is and you can use color but limit yourself to black, red or blue.

1 - Creating the file on Illustrator

Step 1 - Create the basic file

I created the file in illustrator by copying the image from the slides. I had to first send it to google keep before I could download it.

Then open the image trace window by going to Window > Image Trace

Step 2 - Trace

Click Trace

Step 3 - Expand

Go to Object > Image Trace > Expand

Step 2 - Repeat the above process for the elements as well.

▫️
Create 3 expressive words. An expressive word is one that manipulates the word’s letterforms to communicate the meaning of the word.

Step 3 - Creating a base in Illustrator. Then coping the shape in Photoshop

I created the basic boarding pass using Step 2.

Then I copied and pasted the shape on to Photoshop.

Photoshop works better with images so it is more useful to lay out the logos using photoshop.
