Hello everyone! This week’s second Design Cuts tutorial comes from warm and humid Falls Church, VA. I’m excited to give you a glimpse of what can be accomplished with the great typefaces of the 22 world class quality fonts collection.
This tutorial will show you how to unlock some of the more advanced features of your new typefaces, as well as providing you with an awesome retro freebie pack (vector noise textures, retro trophy vector asset, vintage bowling illustration asset).
The piece we’ll walk through together is articulated around three typefaces: Palm Canyon Drive, Columbia Titling, and Transat. Our goal is to create a poster that advertises the return of the fall ten pin bowling league. The league is located at Her Majesty’s Lanes in London, a fictitious bowling alley. The big prize? The Design Cuts trophy cup!
We’ll explore the typefaces’ open type features, work with Illustrator’s offset path feature, summon some pathfinder magic to cut elements, and more.
