01 Aug Online Typography Tutorials
Looking for some fun type-based tutorials to explore in your down time? The web provides an abundance of typography-based tutorials to help increase your design skills in Illustrator and Photoshop. If you’re looking to become more proficient in the technology in order to better actualize your ideas – this may be just what you’re looking for.
Generally, the tutorials should take about 2 hours or so to complete (but some will be MUCH longer, a few shorter). But, be warned – some tutorials are better than others in describing the step-by-step process. So remember to bring a zeal for learning a dash a patience as you begin each one.
I will try to keep adding tutorials to the end of the list as time advances the technology, but this should be a great place to start!
