    poisonfrog Apparel ~ Seamstress & Fashion Designer 2014 Custom “how to measure” Illustrations | Business Cards | Postcards | Clothing Tags | Website Design [using Website Builder] | Photography | Photo Editing & Effects We photographed the clothing on models. Then to showcase the clothing only, simplified silhouettes of the models’ skin and hair were placed over the images, and the backgrounds were removed and changed to a flat colour. These photos as well as other photos and illustrations are used in advertising & marketing, on social networking platforms and the website. #logo #graphicdesigner #branding #illustrator #photoWW
