Create A Geometric Collage with Inkscape and GIMP

Create A Geometric Collage with Inkscape and GIMP 1024 602 Nick Saporito

Today I’m going to do something I haven’t yet done, and that’s create a tutorial where I use both Inkscape and GIMP together to create an end product.

Learn How To Design Logos

If you want to learn how I come up with logo design ideas, be sure to check out my Logo Design Academy - an interactive 18-part video course where you will learn my entire creative process for coming up with logo ideas and implementing them.

Inkscape and GIMP are incredibly valuable design tools, but they serve different purposes. Inkscape is meant for vector creation, whereas GIMP is meant for photo manipulation. Since they’re each so powerful when it comes to handling their respective purposes, using them together can produce great results.

The design we’ll be creating today is a geometric photo collage, where we take 3 different (but related) photos, and slice them up into different segments of a geometric shape that we’ll create with Inkscape.

Design Elements

The elements use in this tutorial are the three photographs below. Simply click on the image to grab a copy of it…
