Straight from the source’s mouth
~ 10 May 2004 ~
Since the relaunch of Authentic Boredom back in March, I’ve received a fair amount of requests by email to explain how I do some of the aging/weathering used on the site.
Thus, hot on the heels of generous “open source design” releases from the likes of Todd Dominey, Shaun Inman, and others, I give you 4minutemile.psd (Photoshop, 2.2 MB) — source file for the masthead currently running through May 13, 2004. Although created in Photoshop 7.0 Mac, it’ll open up fine in Windows and possibly even Photoshop 6.0 and 5.5.
I won’t bother explaining much of what’s there for now. Suffice it say I have plans for a for-publication article or four-part blog series (haven’t decided which yet) that will explain some of the techniques I use. Enjoy.
Stock photography, type, and killer tees. Genuinely recommended by Authentic Boredom.
