Typography Experiment - From Sketch to Reality
- In this project I had created a sketched type and then I put it in Illustrator and Photoshop to create a new kind of type. In fact this is a "Typography Experiment". Here I'll show you the whole process that I followed, from sketch to reality. I hope you'll enjoy!
All the best.
- First Step - Sketching
- This is the original sketch about my "Typography Experiment". I tried to create as more realistic as I could but not perfectly (actually I think that I'm not so good in this kind of things but I always try to do as better as I can!). This time I haven't use my Moleskine®, but simple piece of paper with squares that allows me to create a 3D letters with ease. After this part I put my typo in Illustrator and all become more detailed and clean.
- Second Step - Illustrator
- This is the second step about my Typography "Experiment". This is the most exciting part because you can play with Illustrator and having fun with it. In this part I tried to create a typo as much detailed as I could because this is the most important part of the whole process. I started with the details of every single letters then with the edges as you can see in the following screenshots.
- After that I create a 3D letters. I draw it all by hand. Only for curly edges I use a spiral tool. Follow the screenshots to know how.
- I always follow the same steps:
1° - Details of the letter
2° - Edges of the letter
3° - "3D space" of the letter
In the following screenshot you can see this process apply on the letters.
- After word "TAKE" I start with word "HOME". Take a look at the screenshots and see how I create the letters.
- Now it's time to add some details. I start with some lines and end with word "ME" as you can see in the following screenshots.
- Here we are. We have our Typography Experiment in Illustrator. Now it's time to retouching in Photoshop! Let's go to the next step and see how it works.
- Third Step - Photoshop
- After Illustrator is time to Photoshop. In this part I add background and many details on the illustration. I create my custom background with scratchy texture and with black fabric texture then I put my typo on it as you can see on the following screenshot.
- After that I add colors, depth and details on my typo as you can see on the following screenshots.
- ..and now I add my personal touch!
- Final Piece
- After a little play with Photoshop to achieve as the best result as I can, the final piece came out. But before take a look at some details.
- In the following screenshot you can see a simple use of my illustration.
- This is the whole process that I followed to create this piece of "Typography Experiment". I really hope you enjoy it. If yes don't forget to share and push the badge! Thanks for watching!
All the best.
