There is one thing I really enjoy about my job, I get to meet people from all over the world. ¬†Granted it is usually in the form of email, but at least it isn’t spam ūüôā ¬†I have been talking with Manashree Parekh about how to make the signage in a photo become the center of attention. ¬†I thought the request was interesting as the signage is usually the last thing I pay attention to in the city.

Signage, however, is a form of design, a form of art that I continually bypass as I look around.  Is it because I am inundated with advertisements all over America?  More than likely, but the challenge of making the signage the most important aspect of a picture sounded like an interesting task!

In this tutorial I will walk you through how I made Manashree’s signage pop off the page. ¬†You can use this technique for much more than just signage. ¬†It is universal for many applications and holds more value than just selective color, which after seeing 2 or 3 of them they lose their cool factor pretty quickly!
