Type Project: Constructivist Poster

Lynda.com - Mon, 04/07/2014 - 20:00
Authored By: Nigel French

Released On: 4/8/2014

Constructivists believed art should play a role in a better future for us all—that even typography could inspire action, reaction, and social progress. The Constructivist style was resurrected in the 1980s and is still popular, striking, and fairly easy to imitate today. In this Type Project, Nigel invokes the style and the spirit of the Constructivist movement in an evocative poster design. He shows how to choose historically appropriate typefaces (square, solid, and sans serif) and use Illustrator's tools to align, space, and rotate your type. Plus, learn how to use a simple illustration to enhance the underlying message and add texture to your design.

After you produce the daylight renderings, Adam Crespi shows how to light the scene with interior lights suitable for night or dusk shots, and then use sky portals to create soft indirect light that blooms through the windows.
