Hit The Jackpot Flyer – Casino Trip Flyer
I attempted to design this flyer once before, but it looked like an old No Limit Records CD Cover (Google MP Da Last Don CD)…dope in the 90’s, not so much today.
I’m trying to retire my “Bigger is Better” style for a more minimalist “K.I.S.S” approach.
I saw part of a quote from Bruce Lee that read “Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water.”
I’m going to keep that in mind, with my current and future projects. I’m not even sure if I have a style honestly….but in case I do, I’m going to try & be free of any style (not freestyling tho).
Or maybe I’ve just been watching too many Kung-fu movies…Ip Man 3 was DOPE!
Okay, back to the flyer…
It’s just a simple flyer for a travel agency…not a lot of info was needed, there is some info on the back of the flyer, but it doesn’t have anything to do with the design on the front, it’s just more dates for more events…so I’m not sharing it.

Okay, so like every other graphic designer…I design flyers, business cards, and logos.
I don’t have concrete evidence, but I don’t think that it’s far-fetched to say that those 3 items make up over 90% of my business.
As much as I appreciate clients entrusting me with their brand identity…I offer more services than just designing the big 3.
I’ve designed posters, window wraps, and t-shirts…but that’s not what this is about, this is about digital photography + graphic art…the reason why I learned how to use Photoshop.
I started out over a decade ago drawing myself in crazy scenarios with cartoon characters and in parallel universes, then I found out about Photoshop…I put down then pencil and picked up the (Wireless Graphic Drawing) pen.
Which is why I made this picture…I offer a myriad of design services, so it’s time that I do a better job of marketing what those services are.
…now maybe I’ve been watching too much Shark Tank, but if you’d like to be placed in a piece of fine art like this, feel free to contact me! (I sell my services on Etsy). If you live in the Dallas Ft.worth area, I can take the photo for you (for a nominal fee). Original Artwork – Domenico Tojetti : Progress of America.
Some Light Photo-manipulation

First things first, I didn’t take these photos…the credit goes to Interscope Photography of Atlanta Georgia (Interscopephotography.com)
With that said, I received a phone call asking could I photoshop 2 photos together to fit inside of a 10×16 photo frame. Of course, I needed to see the photos first.
I was emailed the photos, I checked them out, I replied…hell no.
The photos weren’t uniform and the perspective was off…then again, I like challenges and in all probability, the family that’s in the photo won’t be studying it for irregularities.
So, let’s get to work…
Step 1: Change the perspective of the building & stretch the sky
Step 2: Combine the photos. The best spot was under the balcony in photo 1 & above the balcony in photo 2.
Step 3: Stretch the sidewalk and add some light texture…to make it look real.
Step 4: Replace the Guest Services sign… the sign that I replaced it with looks photoshopped, but it’s supposed too.
In the end, I think it came out awesome, but I’m biased.
