The Art of the Poster

May 17, 2013 12:55PM

If I told you how long it took me to make this you’d laugh:

I truly love posters.  There’s something magical about a great poster (note: mine is NOT a great poster).  I’ve been working on my Adobe skills for about six months now.  I still have a million years to go before I am remotely good at making, well, anything in Adobe, but mainly posters.

In today’s do-it-yourself world, the more you know, the better off you are.  My sister is a fantastic designer, and she’ll make me a poster more often than not if I ask her.  She has a lot on her plate these days so I took matters into my own hands.

The learning curve for me is steep, but I’ll get it.  If you have any tips to make Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop easier, please enlighten me!
