Being inspired by the Type Directors Club this morning, I decided to typographically represent a beautifully written line from the song, Frank Sinatra, by Cake. I was going for the glamour and lights that I envision when I think of Sinatra and his Rat Pack. I also got the chance to use this new typeface I got yesterday. It’s called League Gothic. Isn’t it pretty?
Building this design, I mainly thought of two things: how phenomenal smart objects are in Photoshop and how I’ve been using Outer Glow a lot recently. I’m sad that I never took advantage of Outer Glow before but I better not get hooked, huh? Either way, I love using styles and effects that I’m not used to give me a better vocabulary for future designs. This project is almost like playing with a visual Thesaurus. Hmm. That’s a cool idea: a visual Thesaurus.
