It’s alive!

In the best “Dr. Frankenstein” style my first design creation went live! 🙂

OK, the story behind. I, as probably 95% of the people that work in front of a computer, have back problems, mostly lumbar pain. At work we gathered a group and hired a trainer (Margit Dürr) to give us twice a week “Back Training” sections over lunch break. Well, the training is quite intense for the most of us and we get considerably tired.

As a joke, a colleague suggested that we could wear a sticker after the training similar to the ones you get when you give blood in the USA “Be Nice To Me – I gave blood”. Well, as Barney from “How I meet your mother” would say “(Photoshop) challenge accepted!”.

Nothing I haven’t seen in photoshop tutorials, but it’s always great to put it in practice! Concentric circles making a doughnut, gradient in diagonal, text on a path, trainer’s picture in the center and the quote “Be Nice To Me – I was at the Back Training”.

The final product is this one.

One day, after the training, we all appeared with the sticker printed and presented it to the trainer, who seemed to have enjoyed the idea. I sent her the logo and to my surprise last week she showed up with it printed in a T-shirt!

There it is! 🙂
