      Hi, Emilia.
      I think those great posters is made in Adobe Illustrator.
      Rough Sketch -> Scan -> Trace on Adobe Illustrator.

      Good luck with your bussiness.

    they look like a mix of both programs. i normally start off in Illustrator then add the background and finishing touches in Photoshop.

    hope it helps :)

    Does anyone else have advice here?
    (it would be great to know of some different techniques)

  5. A great collection of typography designs.
    Thanks for sharing them.

    You can do most effects now in illustrator and I prefer it for illustrations. As the designs are vector they can be scaled withou quality loss and the files are much smaller so quicker to work on.

  6. Very nice collection of graphic design and typography. I love looking at type like this. The only thing I would want more in this article is tutorials on how they did this.

    It’s a really impressive collection, will be hard for me to choose just one picture! I think that I will choose that one with “You are important” – is awesome!

  16. Alexa Oelbaum says:

    Awesome collection, these examples really got your point across of inspiring. I try to experiment with fonts as graphics often because I think it gets you message across loud and clear without boring the viewer. In fact, this technique was used rather successfully in the new create and barrel commercial spot where bold impacted text illustrates all the offering of the company. Being an advertising student, I realize how much choosing the right font really matters because each font really does have it’s own personality.
