I’m by no means a graphic designer, but I do enjoy playing around with text and different typography. So in my attempt to create a subway-type poster sign for the places I’ve visited and love to frequent (here’s my inspiration), I took my Sunday afternoon to hunker down at the library and teach myself the basics of Illustrator and InDesign. The graphic shown here is my 2nd draft of an 18×24 poster of my favorite places. I think I still need to work on the grunginess of the black, but I was happy that I figured out how to “cut-out” the text. Small steps people! After all, a creative weekend is a successful weekend.
