Really quick, I will document a series of drafts for my fifth and final course graphics project.
The graphics are pretty light for this one, with no animations, and mostly slide graphics. The reference slide looked like this:
My very first draft was a cartoony pipe graphic, which may have been a little complex
For the second, I tried following a tutorial to simulate a 3d pipe, which may look too retro
Looking for more references, I took inspiration from this Google result:
And made a flatter pipe graphic
Deciding on a better layout, I simplified it and reintroduced a very soft gradient, but it still looked pretty retro.
Checking Behance for contemporary references, I realized a lot of modern design with gradients adds a grainy texture to spice it up
So I tried the same thing, and it is my personal favorite so far
At Suloni’s suggestion, I made a few desaturated photo edits as well. All are awaiting client feedback.
