Description

A typographic poster is simply a poster that's based around a strong influence of type, whether they be individual letters or whole sentences. In this course, you will learn how to create a poster design that's based around type.

As a bonus, you will also learn how to use Adobe Photoshop to take your completed typographic poster design, and showcase it a realistic environment. This is particularly useful for those who wish to showcase their designs on a portfolio, or even to clients.

This course is for anyone who wants to expand their designer skill-set to include the specific niche of typographic poster design. Not only will you gain a solid understanding of designing type-based posters, but you will also learn other invaluable techniques and terminology that can be applied to other areas of design.

This is a very hands-on, learn by example approach to learning typographic design. In other words, we're going to focus on a single project from start to finish. While this course is relatively short, you should expect to gain a good understanding of how to design a typographic poster.
