Softball Advertisement

In the advertisement above, I created it using Photoshop. I made it like this because it invites everyone to come out and support their Mercy Jags. I created this advertisement using several tools. I used the textbox tool so I could put the text on the advertisement. I had to select the pictures on the advertisement and copy and paste them on to the advertisement. In order for me to make the softball, I used the shape tool to make the ball. To make the lines I had to use the line tool as well as the pin tool to curve the lines the way I wanted them to. For the red seams on the black lines, I decreased the opacity as well as using the eraser tool to help shape the lines. To make the red seams however, I used the paintbrush tool.On the picture of the softball field, I had to crop the photo. In order for the background to be blue, Mercy's school color, I used the fill tool which filled in the entire background. To get my logo in the bottom right corner, I used the lasso tool and then copy and pasted the logo where I wanted it to go. The pictures of the jaguar and the rocket are there to represent the mascots of each team. I enjoyed this project and liked creating my own logo as well as my own advertisement.

Creating a Logo

The logo I chose to create was for a softball team. It relates to the purpose of it because it has a field as well as a bat to go along with it. I shaped the field to make it look like a softball with lines on it like a softball would have with a bat hitting it, which illustrates what happens during the game of softball. I have the name of the team writen inside of the bat so people know what team the logo is for.
I chose the colors, green and brown, because that is what colors are found on softball fields. I made the bat black so it would go with the field and lettering. In my logo, I used several elements in Photoshop. I used the line tool to help make the field so it was as close to perfect as I could make it. I aslo used the pin tool to help make the cruve where the outfield would be on the softball field. Another tool I used was the paint tool. I used the painting tool a lot to paint in the colors on the field.
