- [Voiceover] Hi I'm Nigel French. Welcome to Type Project: Art Deco. In this short, project-based course we'll be designing a promotional postcard in an art deco style. Known for its elegance and use of angular, symmetrical geometric forms, art deco is one of the most influential and enduring styles of the 20th Century, and a style that enjoys frequent revivals. Starting in Adobe Illustrator, we'll manually trace a source image and combine it with an art deco type treatment.
Then in Photoshop, we'll apply a series of layer effects to really bring the piece to life. Finally, we'll create a print-ready PDF of the postcard in InDesign. Let's get started.
