The campaign theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is “Embracing Equity” as we recognize and celebrate the contributions and accomplishments of diverse women worldwide.
Here, at Pixlr, we champion diversity and exalt equity, hence we want to design an International Women’s Day poster that artfully translates the theme.
In today’s tutorial, we will show you how to create a unique thematic artwork that encompasses the beauty and power of womanhood in just a few simple steps.
1. Start an artboard
Go to Pixlr, click Create New and choose the dimensions you want. Here, we’re going with a 1080x1920px social story artboard.
2. Select photos for your poster
Before you start anything, you have to select a handful of images you’d want to utilize for your collage artwork.
For our poster, we’re using these 3 images only.
3. Remove the background
After adding our first image to the artboard, we will remove its background using AI Cutout.
4. Create a new background
Since the theme color for this year’s International Women’s Day is purple (symbolizing justice and dignity), we want the background to convey that message.
Here, we are using the Gradient tool to create pretty lavender and lilac hues.
5. Start layering
Now that you have your background set, you can add the rest of the images. It’s basically a repeated process of uploading a new image layer and removing its original background using Pixlr’s Cutout tool.
Then, we’re duplicating the flower and arranging the duplicates around our key subject in the center. Feel free to duplicate an image layer however much you want as long as it doesn’t take the focus away from your subject.
6. Add text
To finish the poster, we only need to add some text to the artwork.
