Bringing opportunities to the prepared mind.

In 2007 I wrote a Photoshop tutorial for PSDTUTS that was a user request, actually it was a request from not one but quite a few readers, they wanted to know how to create the MSNBC header effect. Back in those days it was a brand new design with a very colorful background image on the header. Now in 2010, they have a new website design and I was invited to help them with the background image.

I was stoked, especially because they wanted to keep a colorful effect but with something new. Then I had this idea of using part of their symbol to create a pattern and apply it over the colorful peacock symbol with a lot of blur and light effects.

The whole process is quite simple and straightforward, however it took me some time until I got the idea and got the outcome I wanted, fortunately they liked the idea as well and now it’s up on the new MSNBC site design, so check it out too.
