In the past year I stopped writing tutorials and the main reason was that I thought they weren't relevant anymore given the copious amount of great websites out there. Also, I believe the audience of the blog has already matured and focused more on other areas of the design process such as ideations and the the process itself. The tools, as I always tried to emphasize, is the least important part of the process, but it's important to have command of them. As a good craftsman, knowing the best tool for each trade will save you a lot of time.
Following our series of tutorials inspired by movie posters, today we bring to you a simple image inspired by the new Jim Carrey and Steve Carrell's movie, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. The poster and the TV spot show a really nice old signage effect, that's the title of the movie. As usual that was perfect for a Photoshop tutorial and also to create a nice animated gif.
So for this tutorial we will show you how to create a nice old signage effect using Photoshop and a stock photo.
