Fun with Back Screens

THE MISSION

This weeks challenge is to use a visual design technique for elearning in which an image is featured at the front of a design and a larger transparent version of the same image is used in the background.   In graphic design this is called a back screen.

THE INSPIRATION

I have used this technique before in Photoshop when I did graphic design.  I find it works well as a space filler and looks especially great when advertising high-end products, for this reason I decided to use the image of a watch.

THE PROCESS

The process was very simple, I enlarged the watch, skewed it in Photoshop and covered it with a transparent black layer to push it into the background.  I added a few navigation buttons and some cool Breaking Bad Lorem Ipsum text that I found here.

THE OUTCOME

Check the finished sample of this simple, but effective technique here.
