Learn how to use Illustrator and Photoshop to create a distressed type treatment inspired by Grunge.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Nigel French. In this episode of the Type Project series, we'll be using Illustrator and Photoshop to create a typographic treatment, in a style inspired by Grunge, a design movement popular in the mid 1990s, and a style that continues to resonate today. We'll see how to use historically appropriate type, and how to treat it to create a look that evokes the style. Here are some of the techniques we'll be using: creating a background of distressed type through the use of Illustrator symbols, deleting the counters, or interior shapes of letters, using an opacity mask to knock out a type's shape, and, distressing our design with the use of a dirty texture, let's get started.
