Linkedin / Textured type techniques
We love to teach at M+P! Our series of creative courses on Lynda.com / Linkedin Learning are for the students out there who are hungry to learn. We say, "Stay Creative!"
The first course, presented by M+P's Creative Director Todd Gallopo, is intended to be a screen test. However, the finished piece inspired a series of hand-technique courses that he continues to author and film, teaching students around the world.
Skill Level: Beginner
Take a break from the computer. Learn how to create type with your hands. LA-based creative director Todd Gallopo introduces three analog techniques for manipulating type that can't be achieved in exactly the same way digitally. Todd shows how to create hand-cut type, transfer-textured type, and type with a "chalky" or hand-drawn look. He'll also reveal the best ways to convert your handmade type into vector forms that can be used in design applications such as Photoshop and Illustrator.
