Alycia Rainaud is a freelance graphic designer and digital artist in Montréal, Canada. Her work is a blend of editorial design, visual experimentation, and psychology, with a highly saturated yet dark aesthetic.
Use Adobe Photoshop to customize Rainaud’s music-inspired templates with new imagery, type, and colorful effects.
Need help getting started? Check out these tips from Rainaud on how to add your own style to her template designs.
Add Your Own Images
Macro photos of textures, portraits, or even landscape photos all look great in Rainaud’s designs. Open the Artwork layer group in any of the three templates and drag or import a photo into the document. Right-click the new layer and choose Create Clipping Mask.
Experiment by scaling and rotating new images as you place them to create abstract compositions.
Choose a New Title
Use the Type tool to change titles and try different fonts. Rainaud used the font Planet Kosmos in her designs. We liked Ethnocentric from Adobe Fonts as an alternative.
Create unique typographic styles by double-clicking a title layer and experimenting with effects like Bevel & Emboss and Drop Shadow.
Experiment with Color
Try gradient overlays and adjustment layers to give your images unique looks. Open the Artwork layer group the and play with the blend mode and opacity of the layers.
Use the Properties panel to fine-tune the adjustment layers and gradient overlays even further.
