Your final trace is only as good as your presentation. In this video, learn how to add a little pop to your finished product.
- You know, sometimes,…when you're working on an image trace,…you just give the person the tracing when you're done,…and that might be just a black-and-white representation…of the logo, a photorealistic picture,…or whatever the case might be.…Well, sometimes, when you're working on a new project,…it turns into something that might be…a piece of collateral that they're going to use,…like in this case, we had to reset the typography…and we changed the look and feel of the logo element itself…to make everything sort of flow together.…So, in order to sell this to the client…and make them think that we did…a pretty good job tracing everything,…we're going to have to present this…in a little bit of a different way.…
So, how do we do that?…Well, we're going to have to dress it up a bit,…and I'll show you an example of what I'm talking about.…So, I've got a layer here, Layer One,…and I'm going to create another layer on top of it,…but then I'm going to drag it beneath it.…And this layer, too,…we're just going to call this Background,…
