Will Naish Graphic Designer


The brief for RMG’s Moon exhibition was simple. Produce a campaign visual portraying the iconic photo of Buzz Aldrin from the Apollo 11 mission, in front of a distance shot of the moon. I created the resulting image using multiple layered Photoshop techniques to integrate two disparate images. The campaign far exceeded its targets, and the exhibition attracted 25 per cent greater attendance than previous exhibitions at the RGM. I integrated a photo of Buzz Aldrin on the Moon into a dark background using strategically painted shadows. Once the resulting image was combined with a computer generated image of earthrise over the moon, I used improvised Photoshop techniques and colour grading to integrate the two images, and give the composition a grand, cinematic feel.
