About This Class


Bold and simple type combined with nice floral or botanical illustrations—I bet you’ve seen a lot of it around lately on cards, clothing, wedding stationery and posters! It is a very simple, but very effective way of creating elegant designs with a sense of volume and sophistication.

I am Evgeniya Righini-Brand and in this class I will go through the process of combining found vintage botanical illustrations with type in Adobe Photoshop to create captivating designs which can be used in a wide range of projects: from personal greeting cards, wedding stationery or party decor, to any marketing materials and visual identity.

This class is suitable for pretty much any skill level and follows up on skills covered in my previous classes* Source & Mix: Digital Collage from Vintage Encyclopaedia Illustrations and Mastering Typography 1: The Beginner's Guide to Creating Stunning Designs – Typographic Contrast.


In this class you will learn:

  • how to work with layer masks;
  • how to work with artboards in Photoshop;
  • how to effectively use colour adjustments to create multiple variants of your designs;
  • how to use a brand new Photoshop Match Font feature;
  • and how to prepare work for print with bleeds and crops marks in Photoshop.

I will be very excited to see what you can create! Join me in this class to make something trendy to celebrate summer and beautiful typography!
