About This Class

Martin Perhiniak, Adobe Certified Expert and Instructor, designer and illustrator guides you through his approach on creating an engaging typographic design using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. In this course he is sharing many useful techniques and best practices he has been using in his own work. This workshop is a very effective way to improve your Illustrator skills with an emphasis on working with type.

By the end of the class, you will be familiar with sketching in Photoshop, applying 3D effects in Illustrator, warping text, using the Recolor Artwork feature and even creating mockups of t-shirts and posters with the final design.

An assignment is given at the end so you can apply the tips learned here and upload your own typographic design based on a quote of your choice.

Martin is famous for his concise and clear instructions and explanations of complex features and topics. Join him on his creative class and improve your design skills!
