In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial I’m going to show you how to create a custom typography design. Usually text styles like this would be lettered by hand, but in this tutorial I’ll share some secrets on how you can still create cool looking typography by customising ready-made fonts with clever OpenType features. The tutorial will then continue with some customisation of the type to add shadows, offset accents and highlights to create a bright and colourful text effect.
