How to Create a Retro Boxing Poster in Photoshop
As it's Graphic Design Week here on Psdtuts+, let's take a look at some basic Graphic Design principles and cast an eye over the Boxing Poster aesthetic from yesteryear.

We'll keep it simple by creating an A3 canvas, keep in mind that if you are designing for print onto paper or canvas you will more than likely need to set a Bleed and/or Slug Area.

Of course, for this type of project we'll need old paper stock. ...and Hue/Saturation (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation). Go to View > Rulers and turn them on.
