Branding, graphic design, typography and web design

I put the call out on Facebook and Twitter recently to see which typographers and calligraphers were inspiring people at the moment. The results were interesting, because very few of them were “typographers” in the true sense of the word, in that, they don’t “arrange typefaces for print”. What they do, is actually use typographic forms in an artistic, or “illustrative” way. In fact, I was interested to see there are very few recognisable typefaces amongst the works of these artists at all, most of them preferring to hand draw their own letterforms from scratch. I’m sure lots of talented people have been missed out, so feel free to add your inspirations in the comments section down below—I’m sure there will be a part 2 to this list pretty soon. Please be aware that the copyright of all these amazing works belong to the artists who made them. 1.

Colorful Light Effect in Photoshop Last week I was waiting hours in airports, as usual, I was wandering and checking out banners and signs when I found a beautiful Sony ad of a cel phone called Xperia. The thing that really caught my attention was the wallpaper of the phone. It was a colorful light bean crossing the screen . I really like the effect and thought to myself, that is a good idea for a tutorial. So in this tutorial I will show you how to create a super easy but at the same time beautiful light effect. Step 1 Open Photoshop and create a new document, for the size I used 1920x1200 pixels. Step 2 With the Rectangle Tool (U) create a rectangle in the middle and crossing the canvas, use white for the color. Step 3 If you are using Photoshop CS4, convert the rectangle to Smart Objects so you can apply Smart Fllters. Step 4 Add another layer and then with the Brush Tool (B), use a very soft brush, with 0 hardness. Step 5 After this step you will be able to see a very nice and colorful background already. Step 6 Step 7
