In today’s design tutorial, we’re going to be creating a graphic that you can use to promote a New Year sale.
Watch the video preview below then follow along this post for step-by-step instructions.
Step 1: Select a solid red color background
Step 2: Add a solid white circle to the middle of the canvas
Step 3: Create a shadow effect
To create the shadow effect, duplicate the white circle and then change the colour to a dark red.
Then, move this layer back behind the white circle and center it horizontally.
Step 4: Create the ornament effect
First, add a small red circle (same colour as background) over top of the large white circle. This creates a see-through effect.
Then, add a thick solid line hanging from the top of the canvas to the top off the small red circle. This creates the effect of a hanging ornament.
Step 5: Add text over the white circle
For this part, you can add whichever font combinations you’d like. In this case, we’re using a combination of Open Sans and Verdana. We’ve also reduced the letter spacing for the world “sale”.
Step 6: Add a red rectangle under the text
Step 7: Add offer details within the rectangle
