It's funny how big of a roll typography had on the old days when we didn't have computers to create all kinds of crazy graphics as we do today. Most designs relied on nothing but type and the cool mixes they had with the blend of colors was just amazing and very inspiring. So I selected a few pieces to bring us back in time and get some vintage inspiration. Enjoy!

Just in time for the 4th of July holiday, what better moment to enjoy a sunny gallery of summery shots by the talented Ana Dias of Portugal. "Big Girls Don't Cry" is Dias' visually stunning work inspired by the 50s pin-up girl. The overall vibe is playful and unique and in the end, makes us want to smile from ear to ear.
Ana Dias was born in Oporto (Portugal) in 1984. Having graduated in 2007 from the Escola Superior Artística do Porto (Oporto Superior School of Art), she went straight into teaching Serigraphy, Lithography and Engraving at this institution.
Last week we posted a tutorial showing how to create simple artwork in Illustrator and then in Photoshop we added a few effects to make it look old and with that vintage/hipster feel. Some people asked about some of the steps in Photoshop so I decided to make a simple walkthrough about how to use Photoshop to create this kind of effect. It's a simple technique but it can be very handy for this kind of artwork.
So in this tutorial I will show you how to create a simple vintage look stencil in Photoshop.
