This text portrait effect is known as a Calligram. It’s where a passage of text bends and warps around the contours of the subject’s face. This effect is particularly powerful when used to present famous speeches by depicting the orator through their words. The process uses just a small selection of Photoshop’s tools, with the Displace filter and a clipping mask being the key ingredients to making the effect.

Access All Areas members have a great collection of photo effects to download this week, courtesy of Sickboat. These Thermal LUTs can be applied to photos or video to create a surreal heat map effect with vibrant colours. There are 31 LUT presets included to provide a variety of thermal colour schemes to choose from. Being LUT files means they are compatible with all kinds of software, the effects can be easily applied to photos and images in Photoshop using the Color Lookup adjustment layer, and even applied to video footage using any video editing software like Adobe Premiere.
There are several ways to add texturing to your logo artwork in Photoshop, you could apply textures using brushes, add a texture image to a layer mask, apply a texture with a clipping mask, or even using a pattern overlay. All methods have their benefits, but my favourite technique is what I call the ‘knockout’ method. Using this technique to apply textures to your logos means you can easily layer up multiple textures non-destructively without it being permanently applied, so you can still edit and change the artwork if necessary.
