Following the theme of Odyssey, I wanted the second TEDxBGSU event to be centered around audience immersion. So I created an unknown planet that symbolizes the uncharted territories the various talks would transport us to.
Process: No 3D rendering here, all photo-compositing and Photoshop. My goal was to not make this apparent. The globe was created from multiple highly edited images of globe shaped objects I had lying around the house. The lettering was created first as a clean vector to ensure all curves were perfect, then pulled into photoshop to emulate the gold along the circumference of the globe and the dominant blue color from the globe.
