FUTURE AGE (SERIES I) STYLE 01 WAS DESIGNED FOR THOSE SEEKING HIGH FUNCTIONALITY, VERSATILITY, AND ADAPTABILITY IN CARD TEMPLATE DESIGNS. ITS LAYOUT IS HIGHLY FLEXIBLE AND CUSTOMIZABLE.  AT THE ORIGIN OF STYLE 01’S DESIGN IS A “NEAR FUTURE” VISUAL THEME INSPIRED BY THE FOLLOWING CONCEPTS/IDEAS: CIRCUITRY, MOTHERBOARDS, ANALOG, DIGITAL, SCREENS, LIGHTS, HACKERS, RADIATION, NUCLEAR POWER, ELECTRICITY, MECHANICAL SUITS & FRAMES, ROBOTS, ANDROIDS, VEHICLES, ENERGY DISTRIBUTION, AND MORE.

STYLE 01 HAS THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF EDITABLE ELEMENTS OUT OF ALL FUTURE AGE (SERIES I) CARD DESIGNS. NOTABLE ELEMENTS AMONGST THESE ARE 2 ARTWORK DISPLAY STYLES (NORMAL AND SCREEN) THAT GIVE THE CARD DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT VISUAL THEMES.

CARD FRONT

STYLE 01’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 6 MAIN LAYER GROUPS: ROW 01 (HALF), ROW 02 (FULL), ROW 03 (HALF), ROW 04 (FULL), ARTWORK, AND BACKGROUND.
ROW 01 (HALF) AND ROW 03 (HALF) LAYER GROUPS CONTAIN GRAPHICAL ELEMENTS DESIGNED TO DISPLAY ICONS AND TEXT IN PARTITION AREAS THAT TAKE UP 1/8TH OF THE VERTICAL AREA OF THE CARD. ROW 02 (FULL) AND ROW 04 (FULL) LAYER GROUPS CONTAIN GRAPHICAL ELEMENTS DESIGNED TO DISPLAY LARGE AMOUNTS OF TEXT OVER PARTITION AREAS THAT TAKE UP 1/4TH OF THE VERTICAL AREA OF THE CARD (HALF OF THE HEIGHT OF “HALF” LAYER GROUPS).
THE ARTWORK LAYER GROUP CONTAINS 9 DIFFERENT DISPLAYS FOR 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. DISPLAY 01 (MASKED) DISPLAYS ARTWORK WITHIN A LARGE RECTANGLE, COVERING THE CARD IN A WAY THAT CAUSES A THIN BORDER TO BE FORMED OUT OF THE CARD’S BACKGROUND. DISPLAY 02 (MASKED) DISPLAYS ARTWORK WITHIN TILES SPANNING 3 COLUMNS AND 8 ROWS (GAPS BETWEEN THE TILES REVEAL THE CARD’S BACKGROUND). DISPLAY 03 (MASKED | DUAL) DISPLAYS 2 DIFFERENT WORKS OF ART IN VERTICALLY PROMINENT, RECTANGULAR SMART OBJECTS, ON THE LEFT AND RIGHT SIDES OF THE CARD. DISPLAY 04 (FULL) DISPLAYS ARTWORK OVER THE ENTIRETY OF THE CARD. EACH OF THE 4 “DISPLAY” TYPES INCLUDES A SCREEN AND SOLID MODE OF DISPLAY. SCREEN MODE ADDS A GLOWING, INTERLACED-LIKE SCREEN STYLE TO ARTWORK. SOLID MODE ADDS A STYLIZED OUTER STROKE TO ARTWORK, AND DOES NOT INCLUDE SCREEN EFFECTS.
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 01’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 5 MAJOR LAYER GROUPS CONTAINING THE REAR CARD’S ELEMENTS: ARTWORK, PARTITIONS, SCREENS, CIRCUITRY, AND BACKGROUND. THE PARTITIONS LAYER GROUP CONTAINS 4 DIFFERENT PARTITION DISPLAY TYPES. THE SCREENS LAYER GROUP CONTAINS 4 DIFFERENT SCREEN DISPLAY TYPES. THE CIRCUITRY LAYER GROUP CONTAINS 5 LEVELS OF FULLY EDITABLE CIRCUITRY 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). 3 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 01 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 01 COMES WITH A TOTAL OF 7 PHOTOSHOP LAYER STYLES, 4 OF WHICH CAN BE APPLIED TO TEXT AND ICONS IN THE CARD FRONT TEMPLATE. THE 4 CARD FRONT LAYER STYLES ARE INCLUDED IN A SEPARATE 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. 3 OUT OF THE 7 PHOTOSHOP LAYER STYLES WERE DESIGNED FOR LOGOS/SYMBOLS AND ARE LOCATED IN THE CARD REAR TEMPLATES.

ACTIONS

THE STYLE 01 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.
