Project #14: Typography (Illustrator CS5)

Hello WordPress friends, it’s been a while! I had a job interview on Friday to work for a company building mobile applications and.. I got the job!! I am so stoked to get started!

For this project I decided to make a poster displaying a quote using different fonts. I sketched the text on some paper & took a picture:

(Yes, I really need to practice my printing skills haha.)

I used the “Live Trace” feature in Adobe Illustrator (thanks to Suzannah for telling me about this function!) to isolate each word and “Stroked” the paths with different brushes. I ended up replacing some text with Illustrator because I did not like the way the words “makes” and “you” turned out.

This is what I came up with:

It’s not the most amazing work I have ever done but I was on a limited time frame and I really wanted to make a blog post haha. The next one will be better I promise :)
