Graphic designing is not just about designing, experienced designers also give a lot of importance to the fact that how quickly something is designed.
One thing that should enhance your speed of work is using ready-made graphics for your designs, just like the ones we publish for free download. In this tutorial, I’ve used such ready-made graphics to create my design.
I hate it when I’m reading a tutorial (yes, I do study tutorials, I have to stay updated) and the writer takes a whole lot of time just to make one shape. I avoid doing that, instead I use free ready-made resource, and that’s what I did here. I do it to keep the tutorial brief. I hope you like my effort.
I rarely make a grayscale tutorial, that’s because it’s not very commercial, yet they are highly creative. So if you are one of the guys who want more creative work than commercial, shoot a comment and let us know so that we should focus more on this stuff.

Setting the Background
We are kicking off by opening the background image. Then I converted this image into Desaturated mode. You can do it by hitting CTRL+Shift+U.
I loaded the map PNG file onto our artwork, set it’s layer style to Overlay and Opacity to 43%.
We’ll be making loads of rectangles now, all will be clip masked to one another.
I just made a rectangle box in the middle of the window and set its opacity to 87% and rotate it.
Now I made another rectangle in the middle of the previous one.
Now this might sound a little tricky. I made one more rectangle in the middle and then I clip-masked it so it is showing solid black color.
To create a clipping mask, place the image on top of the layer containing the our big rectangle, right click on the shape layer and click Create Clipping Mask.
Again, made a box and clip-masked it.
Now, using the Wireframe Brushes, I created a brush stroke using a very large size stroke.
Another stroke, this one should go a little bit outside. And don’t forget, we have set layer blend mode at Multiply.
Now I made two more rectangular boxes, the big one is filled with white color and has a big black stroke, the small one is filled with black color and has no stroke.
Now I made a clipping mask. The very top rectangle, is clipped with the background. You can see the layer panels image in the screenshot below.
Model Makes Entry
Now it is time for fashion model to enter. I cut her image using Lasso Tool. Then go to Image>Adjustment>Black and white and then adjust these values. This will convert the image into black and white.
After a bit of transformation, we are ending up here.
Now I just typed some text, it’s likely that you’ll type your slogan here. This is a just a dummy filler text. Set it’s opacity to 25%.
