Typographic Designs with Photoshop Vector Tools
Typographic design is the skill of composing a message in a way that is both readable and beautiful. The skill of designing a successful design allows the creator to invite the viewer to pause and focus on significant messages. This design element is important because it helps define the meaning and tone of the brand as well as establish hierarchy, brand awareness, and unity. It also helps establish an identity and communicate a message.
Typography is the art and science of arranging type in a way that makes it legible, identifiable and appealing when written text is presented. Choosing typefaces, point sizes, line lengths, line spacing, letter spacing, and adjusting the space between letter pairs are all part of the type design. The form, design, and presentation of the letters, numerals, and symbols produced by the approach are described by the word typography itself. Let us discuss the typographic design with the help of the following examples:
