Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Free-form warped type, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Effects (2018).
- [Instructor] In this movie, I'm going to…show you how we can create this…psychedelic type, inspired by the…rock posters of the 1960s.…It's very important that when we do this…that we choose an appropriate font,…one that evokes the era, and one…that's very malleable and will withstand lots of warping.…I'm using a font called Fit, which…is available on Adobe Typekit, now called Adobe Fonts.…So, I'm going to come to my Layers panel.…I also want to point out that I'm using…an ellipse layer here, just as a guide.…
That's because I want the word summer…to be in the top portion of the heart…and the word love in the bottom portion.…In addition, I'm going to draw myself a vertical guide.…I'll come to the View menu, New Guide,…and I want this guide to be at the 50% position.…So I have separated the type onto individual layers,…that's because we need the flexibility…rather than having all as one single type block.…
What I'm going to do here is, because…I'm going to be working with symmetry…and then working on half of it…
