First: The Theme Description
Ready to launch into 2016 in 5…4…3…2…1…BLAST-OFF! Though you may not be climbing into a literal rocket anytime soon, we like to think that January is a time for blasting off, even for those of us stuck within the boundaries of earth’s atmosphere. In order to help you have an ascendant launch into the new year, we’re celebrating the boisterous, bewildering and breathtaking blast-offs that are interspersed throughout our lives at all times of year.
Second: Inspiration Sources
The “bridge” element was simplified to a ladder, to reduce the number of elements in the image and keep focus on the rocket. The IDEASMYTH superhero was originally a normal astronaut but we changed that since the superhero would be more fun
We made sure to keep the rocket to screen right to help with the overall logic of the action sequence.
Seeking the pun-y association with Ideasmyth being “out of this world” (!) we added planets (in Ideasmyth’s branded colors!) to communicate outer space.
Fourth: Static Graphic
We created the static graphic version using Adobe Illustator. We changed the color of the smoke to white, for constancy with the “Ideasmyth’s Ideablog” type.
Fifth: Animated Gif
We created this animated gif using Adobe Flash.
