Creating a poster by combining simple shapes, part 1

Okay let's have some fun with our shape layers now by re-creating this WPA era poster, 1930s poster, public information poster, and we are going to use shape layers to do this and we are going to start from scratch. I am going to split my screen so that we can refer to the original. I am going to come to 2 Up layout. I also want to maximize the amount of screen space that I have available so I am going to come and just drag off my history panel and drag off my mini Bridge and then choose 2 Up again so that we extend across the full width of our available area.

The typeface that's used here is a publicly available freely available for noncommercial use font called WPA Gothic, and let me just show you where you can get that. You can get it from the FontStruct site amongst others, where you can download it and use it in noncommercial capacity. I don't have the rights to distribute this. So I have converted fonts to shape layers so that we don't have any missing font issues....
