This is actually, truly, what I shouted to my team when Adobe released a major update to their flagship (and my favorite) software: Photoshop CC. That release (available as a subscription from Adobe.com for ~10.00/month included something that a lot of people have been requesting for a long time: Glyphs! The Glyphs palette (which was available in 2 other Adobe applications and not Photoshop, wah) enables us to access all the beautiful alternate characters in OpenType fonts. What THAT enables us to do, is make GORGEOUS custom projects! Like so:
With the introduction of the Glyph Palette in Photoshop CC, we now have access to thousands of new character sets! This course is designed to dive into these, and open the world of Glyphs to you! In addition, together we will create a piece of wall art. "Thread By Thread" is a beautiful 11x14 inch poster which you can print to hang in your home, or give as a special gift. It reminds us to keep our hearts grateful and our eyes full of wonder as we go through the world. I'm so excited to share the techniques with you, AND to help you create this beautiful artwork.
In this course I'll show you how to navigate the new Photoshop CC Glyphs palette as we create this beautiful poster together. I'll show you how to:
Design a poster with several different fonts (ours has NINE!)
Consider spacing, size, and alignment in typographic poster design
Select a font with alternates in the Glyphs palette
Insert a glyph
Choose between glyphs in your design
Use the Glyph palette to preview and choose entire dingbat fonts
When you register for Glyph by Glyph, you'll receive more than an hour of video lesson, recorded in gorgeous HD in my clear and easy-to-follow style. You'll also get our famous printable PDF walkthrough, so you can follow along AND access the content at your fingertips later!
