Kicking off creating some party props design, I spent sometime doodling for ideas, and eventually jumping into photo-booth first. After going through some theme research, I have shortlisted a long theme list; also decided to go for one of the most general – Birthday Celebration.
There are so many ways to design under a single theme, so I just go for what I’m good at, cute characters – a bunny, a kitty, and a teddy. The big open mouth of the characters serve as the window frame for photo shooting, initially I made them holding a birthday cake with candles, party hats on the heads, and party decor. However I ditched the birthday cake and replaced by things that the characters like the most, e.g. bunny likes carrot, kitty likes fish, and teddy likes honey. Anyway it is birthday, you deserve what you like most on that day. As well as other variant decor elements that will differ each design looks and feels.
There few sizes of the photo-booth to consider, I have decided to create the master version in AO size; then down-size to other dimension if necessary. The design concepts n draft were ready, time to execute the work, I picked Adobe Photoshop as my tool. Stay tune for future updates of the development progress.
