I’ve been wanting to have some fun with the low-fi poster style that’s usually associated with punk rock gigs and revolution propaganda, but I couldn’t decide what to base my fictional design on. Then I saw the trailer for the new Rogue One movie and I knew I had to produce a Star Wars themed design for this tutorial! Follow along to see how to create a grungy propaganda poster for the Rebel Alliance in Adobe Photoshop with dirty textures, spray paint effects and a low-cost, hand made feel.
The design we’ll be creating in this tutorial is the ultimate anti-establishment message from the Rebel Alliance. It’s made in the style of the cheap flyers and posters made by underground movements, that rely on low cost production methods like cutting and pasting photographs, hand painted typography and low quality photocopy prints. We’ll be creating this artwork 100% digitally, but with the assistance of hand made resources that will help to achieve the collage aesthetic.
