I just discovered this thing called a “mockup!” I wish I would’ve thought of this myself, since it’s such a simple and genius concept.
For those of you who don’t know, a mockup is a visual example of a designer’s work. It cuts the cost of actually ordering sample products and is a timesaver for photographing. A lot of people use these to post their products online. Also, designers use them as examples for clients. If you’re a miserable photographer like me, it is a very useful tool to create decent-looking product photos.
Skillshare, as you know, is such a great resource for people who love learning + being creative. I learned how to do a simple mockup from Teela Cunningham on Skillshare. Check it out here. Just so you know, I think Skillshare is worth the price. (And no, I am not sponsored to say nice things about them 🙂 )
Onto a different subject, these two designs are for wedding cards I am illustrating. They are quite rough, but I like the overall idea.
My family + friends keep telling me to start selling more art, and I’m trying! It’s intimidating though. And also a lot of fun!
Okay I’ll quit rambling 🙂
