Recreate a type treatment in the Art Nouveau style, using Illustrator, Photoshop, and historically appropriate typefaces and color palettes.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Nigel French. Welcome to Type Project: Art Nouveau Poster. In this episode of the Type Project Series, we'll use Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop to create a typographic treatment inspired by Art Nouveau design. In doing so, we'll look at choosing stylistically appropriate typefaces and colors and how to apply and refine several useful techniques, all of which have applications beyond working in this particular style.
These techniques include how to create a balanced type treatment, how to add a decorative frame, how to add additional decorative elements, and make some of those elements entwined with the letter forms, and finally how to bring the piece to life by adding texture. Let's get started.
