About This Class

In this video I show you how to create a halftone pattern out of an image. I then show you different things you can do with this dotted pattern, such as create 3Dimensional abstract shapes and experiment with dispersion and displacement. 

I experiment with image and type, finally creating a poster design with all the resources created within the tutorial.
