FUTURE AGE (SERIES I) STYLE 02 WAS DESIGNED FOR THOSE SEEKING MORE “TRADITIONAL” STYLE CARD LAYOUTS CAPABLE OF RELAYING INFORMATION IN A VARIETY OF FASHIONS. ITS DESIGN SUPPORTS SYMMETRICAL AND ASYMMETRICAL LAYOUTS. AT THE ORIGIN OF STYLE 02’S DESIGN IS A “FUTURE” VISUAL THEME INSPIRED BY THE FOLLOWING CONCEPTS/IDEAS: ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY, TRANSPARENCY, RELATION, GLASS, CRYSTALLINE DATA STORAGE, CIRCUITRY, SCREENS, ENERGY, MAGNETISM, GENERATORS, LIGHT, ENERGY DISPLACEMENT, GLOW, SYMMETRY, ASYMMETRY, AND OTHERS.

STYLE 02 IS THE MOST BALANCED CARD DESIGN OUT OF ALL FUTURE AGE (SERIES I) TEMPLATES IN RESPECT TO LAYOUT VARIATIONS, SPECIAL FEATURES, AND EASE OF EDITING. AMONGST THE NOTABLE SPECIAL ELEMENT FEATURES IN STYLE 02’S DESIGN ARE 3 “GLASS EFFECTS” (GUASSIAN BLUR, MOTION BLUR, AND SCREEN FILTERS/LAYERS) THAT ADD DISPERSION EFFECTS TO ART AND/OR GRAPHICS GLASS ELEMENTS ARE FOUND OVER.

CARD FRONT

STYLE 02’S FRONT CARD TEMPLATES ALL INCLUDE 100+ GRAPHICAL LAYOUT ELEMENTS THAT CAN BE EASILY COLOR-EDITED (EITHER USING THE COLOR-PICKER, OR INCLUDED LAYER STYLES). ALL ELEMENTS OF THE CARD TEMPLATES ARE ORGANIZED INTO NEATLY ARRANGED PHOTOSHOP LAYER GROUPS, ALLOWING CONVENIENT CARD LAYOUT CHANGES BY ADJUSTING THE VISIBILITY SETTINGS OF THE LAYER GROUPS. ALL GRAPHICAL ELEMENTS ARE SORTED INTO 5 MAIN LAYER GROUPS: UPPER AREA, LOWER AREA, SIDE AREA, ARTWORK, AND BACKGROUND.
THE UPPER AREA LAYER GROUP CONTAINS GRAPHICAL ELEMENTS FOUND TOWARDS THE TOP OF THE CARD. THE LOWER AREA LAYER GROUP CONTAINS GRAPHICAL ELEMENTS POSITIONED AT THE LOWER-HALF OF THE CARD. THE SIDE AREA LAYER GROUP CONTAINS GRAPHIC ELEMENTS ON THE RIGHT AND LEFT HAND SIDES OF THE CARD.
THE ARTWORK LAYER GROUP CONTAINS 6 DIFFERENT STYLES FOR DISPLAYING CARD ARTWORK. THE PNGS LAYER GROUP IS DESIGNED FOR DISPLAYING ARTWORK THAT INCLUDES TRANSPARENCY INFORMATION (.PNGS AND .GIFS). PLACING ARTWORK INTO THIS LAYER GROUP WILL ALLOW DESIGNERS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CARD’S BACKGROUND AND/OR OTHER ARTWORK DISPLAY TYPES. WITHIN THE PNGS LAYER GROUP IS THE PNG (BACKGROUND EFFECT) LAYER GROUP, DESIGNED TO DISPLAY ARTWORK WITH TRANSPARENCY AS A SOLID FOREGROUND ELEMENT AND AN OPAQUE BACKGROUND ELEMENT. DISPLAY 01 (MASKED) DISPLAYS ARTWORK WITHIN A LARGE, ROUND-CORNERED RECTANGLE, COVERING THE CARD IN A WAY THAT CAUSES A BORDER TO BE FORMED OUT OF THE CARD’S BACKGROUND. DISPLAY 02 (MASKED) DISPLAYS ARTWORK WITHIN A LARGE, ROUND-CORNERED RECTANGLE THAT COVERS 75-80% OF THE CARD SPACE. THIS DISPLAY INCLUDES LEFT AND RIGHT LAYER GROUPS THAT ALLOW ARTWORK TO ALIGN WITH GRAPHICAL LEFT AND RIGHT ELEMENTS WITHIN THE SIDE AREA GROUP. DISPLAY 03 (FULL) DISPLAYS ARTWORK OVER THE ENTIRETY OF THE CARD.
THE BACKGROUND LAYER GROUP CONTAINS A SINGLE SMART OBJECT HOLDING THE CARD’S BACKGROUND. THE BACKGROUND CAN BE FULLY EDITED BY OPENING THE SMART OBJECT IT IS CONTAINED IN.

CARD REAR

STYLE 02’S REAR CARD TEMPLATES ALL HAVE 50+ GRAPHICAL LAYOUT ELEMENTS THAT CAN BE EASILY COLOR-EDITED (EITHER USING THE COLOR-PICKER, OR INCLUDED LAYER STYLES). THERE ARE 6 MAJOR LAYER GROUPS CONTAINING THE REAR CARD’S ELEMENTS: ARTWORK, LEVEL 00 (ENERGY GENERATORS), LEVEL 01 (LIGHT SCREEN), LEVEL 02 (LATENT ENERGY), LEVEL 03 (MAGNETIC CRYSTAL), AND BACKGROUND. THE LEVEL 00 (ENERGY GENERATORS) LAYER GROUP CONTAINS 4 GRAPHICAL ELEMENTS DESIGNED TO BORDER THE UPPER AND LOWER CORNERS OF THE CARD’S MAGNETIC CRYSTAL ELEMENTS. LEVEL 01 (LIGHT SCREEN) CONTAINS 2 DIFFERENT STYLES FOR DISPLAYING 3 LIGHT SCREEN ELEMENTS. LEVEL 02 (LATENT ENERGY) CONTAINS 2 DIFFERENT STYLES FOR DISPLAYING 3 LATENT ENERGY ELEMENTS. LEVEL 03 (MAGNETIC CRYSTAL) CONTAINS 4 DIFFERENT STYLES FOR DISPLAYING MULTIPLE MAGNETIC CRYSTAL ELEMENTS.
A SPECIAL FEATURE FOUND IN THE CARD’S REAR COMES IN THE FORMS OF LAYER STYLES THAT CAN BE ADDED TO ANY SINGLE COLOR LOGO WITH TRANSPARENCY INFORMATION (I.E. .GIF’S AND .PNG’S). 4 LAYER STYLES ARE INCLUDED IN THE REAR CARDS ALLOWING ONE TO CUSTOMIZE THE LOOK AND FEEL OF ANY LOGO OR SYMBOL THEY WOULD LIKE TO BE DISPLAYED ON THE REAR OF THE CARD.

ICONS

INCLUDED IN THE STYLE 02 TEMPLATE ARE A PLETHORA OF ICONS THAT CAN BE USED IN THE CARD’S DESIGN. A FOLDER NAMED “ICONS” CONTAINS 30 .PNG VERSIONS OF THE ICON AS WELL AS A .PSD FILE CONTAINING ALL 30 ICONS IN FULLY EDITABLE PHOTOSHOP SHAPE FORMAT. THE VECTOR BASED NATURE OF PHOTOSHOP SHAPES MAKES THESE ICONS SCALABLE TO ANY SIZE, WITHOUT REDUCTION IN GRAPHICS QUALITY. OPENING THE .PSD ICON FILE REVEALS A LAYER GROUP CONTAINING THE 30 DIFFERENT ICONS ON SEPARATE LAYERS NAMED AFTER THE IDEAS THEY REPRESENT. SOME ARE MORE SUBJECTIVE IN NATURE THAN OTHERS TO PROVIDE CARD MAKERS WITH FLEXIBILITY IN DEFINING MORE ORIGINAL IDEAS. ALL OF THE ICONS ARE ALREADY IMPLEMENTED INTO THE CARD FRONT FILES AS SMART OBJECTS, IN SPECIALLY DESIGNATED “ICON/TEXT” LAYER GROUPS. THIS ELIMINATES ANY NEED TO PLACE ANY ICONS DIRECTLY INTO THE CARD DESIGN UNLESS DRAMATIC CHANGES IN THE CARD’S DESIGN ARE MADE BY THE USER.

LAYER STYLES

FUTURE AGE (SERIES I) STYLE 02 COMES WITH A TOTAL OF 14 PHOTOSHOP LAYER STYLES, 10 OF WHICH CAN BE APPLIED TO TEXT AND ICONS IN THE CARD FRONT TEMPLATES. THESE 10 CARD FRONT LAYER STYLES ARE INCLUDED IN A PHOTOSHOP .ASL (STYLES) FILE FOUND WITHIN THE MAIN FOLDER. THE STYLES CAN EASILY BE APPLIED TO ANY ICONS AND TEXT BY SELECTING THE TEXT OR ICON LAYER AND CLICKING ON THE PREFERRED LAYER STYLE IN THE STYLES PANEL. 4 OUT OF THE 14 PHOTOSHOP LAYER STYLES WERE DESIGNED FOR LOGOS/SYMBOLS AND ARE LOCATED IN THE CARD REAR TEMPLATES.

ACTIONS

THE STYLE 02 TEMPLATE INCLUDES TWO ACTIONS DESIGNED TO SAVE COMPLETED CARDS IN DIFFERENT FORMATS. THE FIRST PHOTOSHOP ACTION CROPS A FINISHED CARD’S BLEED SPACE AND THEN IMMEDIATELY SAVES THE CARD AT ITS DEFAULT RESOLUTION AND COLOR MODE (RGB). THIS MAKES THE ACTION USEFUL FOR SAVING CARDS TO BE USED IN DIGITAL MEDIA. THE SECOND PHOTOSHOP ACTION CONVERTS THE CARD FROM RGB COLOR MODE TO CMYK COLOR MODE (THE STANDARD FOR PRINT), AND SAVES THE CARD WITH THE .25 INCH BLEED SPACE. THIS SECOND ACTION WAS DESIGNED FOR SAVING THE CARD FILES FOR PRINT.

A FAIRLY DETAILED INSTRUCTION MANUAL IS ALSO PART OF THE STYLE 02 DOWNLOAD. THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL COMES IN THE FORM OF A XX PAGE ADOBE ACROBAT (.PDF) FILE.
