Since I actually teach Photoshop as well, I do like to create fun examples for the students. My personal sense of fun comes out in these designs and I never realised it until I heard the students grin. Anyway! Here are a few examples I like because they bring back good memories.
Just a fun design, explaining type, layout, style, font and much more. I mean: this image is fab enough to begin with (thank you JJJordan, it was fun to be in touch) and I am glad I can use it in the designs.
Simple design for all students from the second level but honestly; this can already be done at the first level. Fun to explain it all, it's so nice to see they really learn it all.
I am not into perfect bodies and so on and I really like to show all sorts of people, so this one is another I shove into the students faces. I personally think she looks fab.
It was fun to create this one as well, emphasising the usefulness of masks. But I never realised until much later that the mannequin was itself also wearing a mask!

Fun design to teach the students all sorts of stuff on how to use layers, modes, how to apply styles, et cetera et cetera et cetera as Yul Brynner used to say.
Ah, space and science fiction, I like it so much. I think space was my refuge as a bullied child; the imagination and being able to think of a world I could run to when things were very bad were a great help.
Colours can be saturated or muted and while it's important to pay attention to how they will turn out in print I teach the students loads of tricks to cleverly do just that and get the most out of colours anyway!
