How To Create a Realistic Chalk Lettering Effect Last week I posted a showcase of stunning chalk lettering designs, which gave me the inspiration to create some chalk typography myself. Unfortunately I neither have the talent or a chalkboard to produce authentic hand made chalk typography murals, but I’ve come up with a technique that designers can use to achieve realistic chalk lettering effects with their artwork. We’ll use the power of Illustrator to design a concept, then we’ll use some analogue tools to help capture the character of hand lettered art. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create a typography design with a realistic chalk lettered appearance. Boot up Adobe Illustrator to begin our design concept. Create outlines from the type using the shortcut CMD+Shift+O, then right click and select Ungroup to break the letters apart. Draw selections around each word, or group of words, and use the shortcut CMD+G to group the letters back together. Finish off the typography quote by placing the last few words into the layout.
