    Default Shawty's Typography & Design Thread

    This is my typography thread! I've wanted to play around with graphic design typography for a while, and I finally sat down through a stupidly grueling tutorial that was almost more trouble than it was worth as it literally left out important steps of what needed to be done.

    I've never done anything in Photoshop in my entire life, and I've been working on this stupid thing for hours! It's not perfect, but I'm still mighty pleased with the outcome!


    I'll be doing more and posting them as I go!

    Wow, typography is actually a major passion of mine, what a weird coincidence. I mean, take this one that I just whipped up, for example...

    More! Playing with shadows.


    The tutorial I used for this focused on a minimal amount of words, and these were the first that popped into my head. Enjoy, nerds!

    I decided it was unacceptable to atleast not dabble a little bit during a four-day weekend.

    I listened to Fall Out Boy a bunch on the way home from my parents' house. Picked a song, and went with it.



    edit: god I can't stop

    Some weather-appropriate Alkaline Trio!

    I've had Bye Bye Lil' Sebastian stuck in my head for days, so I had to do something about it! A product of too much Parks and Rec.

    You dear!

    I am getting started on Valentine's stuff, and I hope to have my Etsy shop open within exactly one month. Here's my first go!

    Spent over seven hours working on this bitch tonight. There's more/a different direction I wanted to do, but it turned out okay for now.



    edit: Fixed some painful pixel flops and added a few gradients.

    The things I waste my lives on.
