How To Create a Vintage Style Large Letter Postcard Design

Often accompanied by the words “Greetings from…”, these postcards presented the name of a place with faux 3D type effects and featured a variety of pictures of that locale clipped within the text face of each letter. The style has become iconic and is referenced by designers who want to create artwork with a nostalgic or retro theme. In today’s tutorial I show how to create a vintage style large letter postcard design, using the tools available in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop to replicate the visual traits of those original souvenirs. The design we’ll be creating in this tutorial is inspired by the classic style of Large Letter postcards. We’ll use Adobe Illustrator to produce the 3D text style, then import the artwork into Adobe Photoshop to replicate the picture effects within each letter.

We’ll begin in Adobe Illustrator where we’ll construct the basic text layout. NICOLA HEIDEMANN JEWELRY. D C H K. Work - Laura Barnard / Map Illustrator. Tim Lahan. About – Sagmeister & Walsh.

I wanted to post some images of recent sculptural work that either hasn’t appeared on the blog in finished form, or has only appeared in poorly taken images. (oops!) At my recent show at the Stutz building I was able to get some pretty good images of the Chalice pieces, so I’ve included those even though the pieces themselves aren’t brand new.

Only Nails, Always Different: Artist John Bisbee’s Life of Sculpting with Nails. While in college, artist John Bisbee was scavaging in an abandoned house looking for items to incorporate into a series of found-object sculptures when he kicked over a bucket of old rusty nails.

To his astonishment, the nails had fused together into a bucket-shaped hunk of metal. He had an epiphany. Bisbee has since spent nearly 30 years using nails as his sole medium to create geometric sculptures, organic installations, and unwieldy objects from thousands of nails that are hammered, bent, welded, or fastened together in a seemingly limitless procession of forms. His mantra: “Only nails, always different.” KATE TUCKER - ART. Rachel Denny. Rebecca Mock Illustration : The Portfolio of Ray Hargreaves. Saiman.
