How to Design a Creative Concert Poster

Hello Design Cutters! Today’s tutorial comes to us from Simon, one of the two partners and designers at Studio Ace of Spade. To Simon!

Hello all! I’m excited to share another tutorial with you today. The good peeps at Design Cuts have put the Monster Creative Font Bundle in my hands, and watched me run with it. Today’s tutorial is very comprehensive, but I hope that you’ll stick with it, as you should pick up plenty of excellent techniques.

One of the things that I’m excited by now that spring is finally showing up, is concert season. So I felt it very fitting to use the amazing typefaces of the bundle to create a fake concert poster.

WHAT WE’RE CREATING:

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

One image in particular that struck a chord was these specimens from Microbrew Ornament by Albatross Studio:

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

From there, I decided to invent the band The Krakens, and book them a gig at 93 Feet East, a popular London concert venue.

After a little bit of research, I found this amazing image on Unsplash. It’s by Jonas Nilsson Lee, and depicts a field with the sea in the background. Fitting for the krakens to be unleashed.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

From there, I wanted to give the poster a grunge vibe, but without being overwhelming. So, looking through the typefaces in the deal, Amorie Modella and BrushUp just jumped at me.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Sprinkle a few additional resources on top, and we’ll make ourselves a cool poster. Let’s get started, shall we?

STEP 1: DOCUMENT SETUP

I’m working with a 11″x17″ @300 dpi canvas, in Photoshop CC (but any version of Photoshop past CS3 should do).

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next, it’s time to add a few guides. I have vertical guides at 1″, 2″, 5″, 5.5″, 6″, 9″, and 10″, and horizontal guides at 1″, 2″, 8″, 8.5″, 9″, 15″, and 16″.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

STEP 2: BUILDING THE BACKGROUND

To start, we need to build the background. We’ll place the picture, we’ll sharpen it, and do some post-processing to it.

Placing and sharpening the image

Use File > Place embedded to place the sea scene as a smart object in your document. I lined up the top left limit of the field with the horizontal guide at 15″.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next, we’ll use a technique that I’ve already shared in my retro, grungy poster design tutorial to sharpen the image a bit. It involves the High pass filter.

Start by creating a copy of your background layer (Layer > Duplicate layer or CTRL/CMD+J).

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Clip it to the original layer below (CTRL/CMG+G). Note that I’ve left both layers as smart objects.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Then, run the High pass filter on the layer copy (Filter > Other > High pass). I’m using a 50 pixels radius.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Once the filter has been applied, place the layer on Soft light @ 35% opacity. The result is a sharper image, as well as an slightly increased contrast.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Extending the background

The image is in place, but we still have a wide open spot at the top of our poster.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

To fill this spot, we’re going to sample a blue hue at the edge of the vegetation, and fill a new layer with this blue. We’ll then place that layer at the bottom of our layer stack.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

The color I sampled is #acc5ce.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Now, in order to get rid of that line, we’ll leverage the power of layer masks. Simply add a layer mask to the original photo layer (Layer > Layer mask > Reveal all with the proper layer selected).

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

With that done, you can simply paint in the layer mask with a big, soft brush to make the limit disappear. But that’s a bit tedious. I’m using the gradient tool to go a bit faster. Make sure to start your gradient below the line you’re looking to hide.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

The gradient I used is a simple black to white gradient, in a top to bottom direction.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

With that done, let’s move on to processing the image a bit.

Post-processing the image

The post-processing “recipe” I’m using below is just one among many. Feel free to tweak the image differently!

First, we’ll be “lowering the temperature” of the image by using a photo filter adjustment layer.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

I’m using the LBB cooling filter, with a 15% density.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next, we’ll emulate a cross-processing effect by using a curve adjustment layer. Simply add a curve layer, and toggle the Cross process (RGB) preset from the drop-down menu.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

The effect is quite strong, so I chose to lower the opacity of that layer to 50%. You can also note that I’ve labeled each adjustment layers with what they accomplish.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next, we’ll emulate a vintage saturation on the image. Simply add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to the image, and bring the saturation to -25.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Then, we’ll “increase the temperature” of the image with another photo filter adjustment layer. I’m using the Warming filter (LBA) preset, at a 25% opacity.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next, we’ll “fade” the image a bit. Use a Solid color adjustment layer, and fill it with #4e4e4e. Then, change its blending mode to Screen @ 15% opacity.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

A bit of house-keeping

Before we switch to the last part of the background build-up, I’d like to suggest to organize our layers a bit. Here’s a view of my structure: the photo and its related layers are in their own layer group, and so are the layers for the post-processing.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Textures!

It’s time to add a few textures to our background. It’ll give it a bit more depth and substance. Here are the textures you should have at hand:

Start by placing BB_AntiqueEnvelope_04.jpg in your document. I’ve placed, turned, and sized mine so the seam at the middle is out of the frame.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Once the texture is in place, rasterize it, desaturate it (CTRL/CMD+SHIFT+U), and sharpen it a few times using Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen.

Note that you could keep the workflow non-destructive by using adjustment layers.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next, we’ll be using levels (CTRL/CMD+L) to bring some of the textures details out. We’ll use a value of 75 for the dark tones, 0.75 for the mid-tones, and 225 for the light tones.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Once the adjustments are done, change the layer’s blending mode to Soft light @ 50% opacity.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

The next texture we’ll be using is Coffee Stains Texture 02. I placed, turned, and sized the file so it covers the whole canvas.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

After that, following the same process as above (desaturation, sharpening, and levels), we’re bringing the stains into the design. The layer’s blending mode is Soft light @ 25% opacity.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

One more bit of house-keeping, and we’re ready to move on to the rest of the poster.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

STEP 3: THE BADGE

The center badge with the octopus is easy to build, but we’ll need to quickly leave Photoshop for Illustrator.

Grabbing the elements in Illustrator

Let’s go ahead and create a document in Illustrator that has the same specifications than our Photoshop canvas. Note the RGB color mode.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Using the same size and color modes allows us to start playing with sizes and colors straight in Illustrator, without fearing any discrepancy between the two documents we have.

Once in Illustrator, make sure that your Glyphs panel is visible. If it isn’t, make it appear by using the Window > Type > Glyphs menu.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next, choose the typeface Microbrew ornaments and grab the octopus symbol. Start a new text block, and then simply double-click on the glyph in the Glyphs panel. Size it very big (at least 500 points).

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next, we’ll need to grab this circular frame from the extras that comes with the Amorie type family. You could either grab them from the Glyphs panel, or from the handy Illustrator file (AMORIE_EXTRAS-Frames.ai)included in the bundle. I chose the later.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Copy and paste it in your Illustrator document, and start playing with sizes.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Once you’re happy with the size relationship between the frame and the octopus, it’s time to prep the vector elements to be brought into Photoshop.

Bringing the vectors in Photoshop

First, expand the appearance of the octopus text object. Simply right click on the character, and choose the Create outlines option.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Make any size adjustments you feel are necessary now, as they’ll be a far more annoying to deal with once in Photoshop.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Once done, simply copy and paste each element individually into Photoshop, as smart objects. This will allow us to play with each element independently of each other, and to retain their vector characteristics should we need to refine their sizes.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

I also went ahead and gave these two their own layer group, as things will get a bit more complicated later.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Creating the badge itself

First, we need to assign a color to the badge elements. I went ahead and sampled one of the dark browns from the field. I went in the lower-right corner, and chose #302b2c, a darker, red-brown hue.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Once the color has been chosen, you should double-click on the octopus’ smart object thumbnail. This will open the smart object in Illustrator, where you should change its color to the brown you just sampled.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Once you’re done, save your modification (CTRL/CMD+S), close the smart object, and return to Photoshop to admire the result.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Follow the same process for the frame.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Creating the mis-registered color overlay

This step is a bit delicate. Go back to the Illustrator document in which we were originally experimenting with size relationships. Turn off the frame in the layer panel. Then, proceed to copy (CTRL/CMD+C) and paste in place (CTRL/CMD+F) a copy of the octopus.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Turn off the top copy of the octopus.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next, grab the Blob brush tool (SHIFT+B). You’ll want to fill the highlights of the octopus in, like below (I’m painting in red so you can see). You can change the size of the brush by double-clicking on the tool’s icon. The goal isn’t to paint a perfectly smooth shape, but something that will feel enough like done by hand.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Once you’ve done the shape to your liking, fuse it with the octopus by using the Unite functionality of the Pathfinder tool (Window > Pathfinder). Select both the octopus and the shape you’ve just painted, and hit the unite button, and you’ll be done.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Slide the newly created shape underneath the remaining copy of the octopus, turn it back on, and admire the result. The two still line up, and it looks like the highlights of the octopus have been colored red.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Go back to your Photoshop document. Sample a darker blue from the original photo. I went in the lower-left area of the image, and got #384d69.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Switch the highlight shape we created in Illustrator to that color.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Once that’s done, paste the shape in Photoshop as a smart object, below the octopus layer you have there.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

To make it look out of alignment, you simply have to offset it using the keyboard arrows (with the Move tool active, of course – V). I offset it 4 taps down, and 4 taps to the left.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

To create the frame’s off-registered effect, you’ll first have to create a new smart object via copy (through the right-click menu obtained when clicking the layer). If you just duplicate the smart object, the changes you’ll do to one will be replicated on all of its other instances.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Once that’s done, slide the copy underneath the first frame, and change its color via Illustrator to the same blue you gave to the octopus highlight.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Then offset it the same way you offset the octopus highlight (the out-of-register effect of a color has to stay consistent throughout the piece).

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Adding the stroke around the octopus and its highlight

The badge’s finishing touch is a little gap between the octopus and the badge (and their respective highlights). To accomplish this, create a selection around the octopus by CTRL/CMD+CLICK its layer thumbnail.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Then go to Select > Modify > Expand to expand the selection by 25 pixels.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Invert the selection (CTRL/CMD+SHIFT+I), and add a layer mask to the dark brown frame smart object. It will fit the selection we’ve made, and show the gap.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Repeat the same steps, but using the highlights layers to show the gap on the offset frame.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

We’ve got ourselves a pretty nifty center-piece element. Now, onto the type!

STEP 4: THE TYPE

What’s the copy?

Before adding type to our poster, let’s agree on some copy. The title element should be the band’s name: The Krakens.

We’ll also need to add the venue’s name (93 Feet East, London, UK), a date (April 17th, 2015), and a cover charge (£10).

The band’s name will be written in Brush Up Too, while the additional information will be written in Amorie Modella Bold. The lines that frame the additional information are coming from the Amorie extras: lines vector file (AMORIE_EXTRAS-Lines.ai). All of the type elements are colored in #302b2c.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

The title

As you saw above, it’s written in two parts. The “The”, which is rotated 90° counter-clockwise, and the “Krakens.” Start by writing both parts, and placing them in relationship to each other.

I wrote “Krakens” 174 points big, and “The” 90 points big.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Now that this is done, it’s time to take advantage of the many alternative characters that Brush Up has. This will avoid repeating a letter in an identical manner, which in the end gives the type a true “handwritten” vibe.

For instance, select the second “K”, and hit the Stylistic alternates button in your Type panel.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

This results in a different “K” to be displayed.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Repeating this process, let’s change the “E” in “Krakens” so it’s different than the one in “The.”

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Turn the guides back on, and double check that there isn’t any spacing or placement issue you’d like to fix at this stage. Once you’re happy, it’s time to move on the additional information for the gig.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

The venue

Before being able to start, it looks like I have to bring the badge element up a bit in my canvas, so I actually have room to add the extra information.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

We’ll adjust the spacing again once all the elements are there, but I like working with a little bit of room at least.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

I wrote 93 Feet East / London • UK on two lines. Amorie Modella Bold is set in 78 points tall, with a 72 points leading. The copy is left aligned, and placed on the bottom-left side of the canvas.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

The date and cover charge

I wrote April 17th, 2015 / Tickets £10 with the same size and leading values. The main change is that this time, the block of text is right-aligned, and placed on the bottom-right side of the piece.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Let’s tweak this block of text a bit more. First, let’s put the “th” as superscript.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Then, using the same Stylistic alternates functionality as before, let’s make sure than characters don’t repeat themselves identically (pay attention to the “A” and “E” for instance).

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

A bit of layer housekeeping:

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Oh, and next, make sure that your text blocks are well aligned, both vertically to their respective extremities of the title, and between themselves. Feel free to use the Layer > Align menu to make this quicker.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

We can finally add the dividers to frame the additional information blocks. Head to AMORIE_EXTRAS-Lines.ai, and grab one of the dividers.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Paste copies as smart objects around the venue info. You can just paste one from the Illustrator file, and then make duplicates from it in Photoshop.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Don’t hesitate to flip and/or rotate the dividers, so the fact that they’re copies of each other doesn’t jump out to the eyes of the viewers.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Repeat with the date and cover info (don’t forget to adjust the width accordingly).

Now is also a good time to make sure that the dividers are also of the appropriate color. If you just duplicated one smart object through the piece, you should just have to change one of them to #302b2c, and you’ll be good to go.

Global adjustments

With all of that done, we’re getting close to having our layout completed.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

It’s time to adjust the various elements in relation with each other before moving further. In my case, it means bumping the badge up a little bit.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Remember to also look at the piece with the guides turned off, as your perception might shift.

STEP 5: MORE TEXTURES!

It’s time to do the second and last pass of textures. These, by being applied to the poster as a whole, will participate to tie everything together in a consistent ensemble.

We’ll follow the same process than for the background: place, size, rasterize, desaturate, sharpen, and contrast enhancement.

Please note: I’ve been collecting and making textures actively for the past three to four years, and my library is quite big (40+ Gb). I know my texture library very well, and usually I’m able to pick the ones I’ll be using on a project ahead of time based on the desired outcome. Most of the ones below are some that I’ve not made myself. Note that the two that are mine are part of pack I’m selling on my Creative Market store, The Shop.

Note that you’ll also need a Ps action from the good people at Go Media that I’m calling “Aged 2.” You can download it in this post (and read the poster tutorial should you feel so inclined). If you don’t want to read the tutorial, you can also try this direct link to it.

Grabbing the different resources

Here are the textures you’ll need to have at hand to reproduce the effects I’ve obtained:

With these ready, let’s get started.

Applying the textures

Open and place VV_MicroscopicBurnedFilm_10.jpg in your document.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Rasterize, desaturate, and sharpen it, before moving onto levels (CTRL/CMD+L). I’m using the values below.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Finalize by setting the layer to Soft light @ 35% opacity.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next up is the painter’s effect #7 texture. Open and place painter-s-effect-snb-07-4416485295_a78f2da722_o.jpg (yay Flickr file names) into your document.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Levels adjustments.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Blending mode: soft light @ 50% opacity.

Next: VV_GrindhouseTexture_07.jpg

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next: delta_3200___120_film___very_dusty_by_jakezdaniel-d5milqk.jpg (yay DeviantArt file names). It’s sized up so none of the film edge numbers show up, but not rotated.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

No need to play with levels. Simply put the blending mode to screen @ 50% opacity.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next: Like leak #8. Place 8.jpg in your canvas, and change the layer’s blending mode to screen @ 100% opacity.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next: .too dusty. film texture. Place _too_dusty__film_texture_by_missalienation_stock-d3bxobe.jpg into your canvas.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Blending mode: multiply @ 100% opacity

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Next: photocopy_by_clarisaponcedeleon_-_deviantart.jpg. You’ll have to slightly distort this texture so it fully covers your canvas.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Note the particular levels settings, lowering the white output on the texture.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Blending mode: soft light @ 25% opacity.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

A bit of housekeeping:

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

The case of the photocopy noise textures

The two textures from the Photocopy noise texture pack are not used as overlays, but rather pasted into layer masks to weather the type and the badge.

The process to paste a texture in a layer mask is super simple:

  1. Open your texture.
  2. Copy its contents.
  3. ALT/OPTION+CLICK the thumbnail of the layer mask you wish to paste the texture into. This will show you the content of the layer mask, and allow you to edit it. Make sure to disable the little chain link of the layer mask so you can move the texture without moving the element along
  4. Make the edits you deem necessary (size, placement, sharpening, levels, etc.)
  5. Admire the result

Let’s start with photocopy-noise-textures-sbh-001.jpg. Add a layer mask to the layer group that contains your badge. It’s name Frame in my document. Make sure the link between the layer mask and the layer group is disabled.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

ALT/OPTION+CLICK the layer mask, so you can access its content. Note how the layer mask is highlighted.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Open photocopy-noise-textures-sbh-001.jpg, and copy and paste it into the layer mask.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Sharpen it, and invert it (CTRL/CMD+I).

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Use levels to increase the contrast.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Note how the result will slightly differ from the preview given by the levels. It’s probably due to how high-resolution our document is.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Click on the octopus layer thumbnail, and admire the result. Adjust the levels again if necessary.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

We’ll follow the same process, and paste photocopy-noise-textures-sbh-004.jpg into a layer mask attached to the layer group containing all the type elements.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

With that done, here’s a before/after comparison of the effect on the title. It’s very subtle, but it participates to the overall vibe.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

STEP 6: BRIGHTNESS ADJUSTMENTS

The poster is quite dark. So dark in fact, that we can’t read the details of the octopus very well.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

My solution: changing the blue hue used for the offset highlights. You’ll want to stay in a range of brightness and saturation levels that could be present in the original image, so the blue doesn’t seem out of place in the final piece.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Going from #384d69 to #54769b helps, but it seems that we could do a bit more. Let’s change the brown hue of the type a bit too, to #474042.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

After switching around all the dark brown elements, we’re in a better place.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

But it isn’t enough. So I added an Exposure adjustment layer at the top of my layer stack, to brighten things a bit more. I just changed the Exposure value to +0.25, which is plenty enough to make a visible difference.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

STEP 7: FINAL TOUCHES

With the poster in place, it’s time to use the Photoshop action I mentioned when applying the global textures.

First, create a merged copy of all your layers at the top of your layer stack. There’s a convenient keyboard shortcut for that: CTRL/CMD+SHIFT+ALT/OPTION+E. Just make sure you have your most top layer selected when doing that.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

After a bit of layer organization, you should have something like my layer stack. I’ve called the merged copy Comp, and I’ve given it its own layer group.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Duplicate the Comp layer, and rename the copy into Aged 2. Run the Aged 2.atn action you’ve downloaded earlier on the layer.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

The result will be this very noisy version of the poster. It’s like a bad color copy of the poster.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Simply change the layer blending mode to soft light @ 25% opacity. It’ll add a bit of that noise to the piece, and also boost the contrast slightly.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Create another merged copy at the top of your layer stack. Rename it Halftones, and make that layer a smart object (Filter > Convert for smart filters).

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Let’s apply a color halftone filter to that top layer (Filter > Pixelate > Color halftone.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Change the filter’s blending mode to Soft light @ 100% opacity by double clicking on this little icon in your layer palette.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Change the layer’s blending mode to lighter color @ 50% opacity.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Since the effect has been faded too much, we’re just going to increase the size of the halftone dots. Double click the filter’s name in the layer palette.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

Simply change the value of the Max. radius to 14 for a more pronounced effect.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial
Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

The icing on the cake: a last Hue/Saturation layer, that’s clipped to the Halftone layer (CTRL/CMD+G with the layer highlighted in the layer palette). With a value of -75, it’ll participate to soften the color distortion brought by the halftone effect.

Monster creative font bundle demo tutorial

And we’re done!

Design a Fresh Summer Cocktail Menu

WHAT WE’RE CREATING:

Hey Design Cutters!

Today we’ll be creating a summery cocktail recipe card that utilises the incredible amount of fonts and decorations available in the current deal.

There’s a lot of fonts to get familiar with, so let’s jump straight in!

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Follow along with this tutorial: Download the freebie + source file

Today we have another huge freebie for you design geeks to enjoy. Jay from Albatross Design has kindly agreed to offer his Microbrew Banners font as a freebie for the Design Cuts community. These hand-drawn style banners are perfect for your more creative projects!

Remember, this freebie is just a tiny sample taken from our current deal Monster Creative Font Bundle (Including Web Fonts) Just $29 (97% Off). This bundle features 10 incredibly creative font families, as well as extended licensing + web fonts for all items.

Enter your email below to download the free Microbrew banners pack, so you can follow along with this tutorial easily.

Step 1:

Open a new A6 Document in Photoshop (1240 pixels x 1748)

We’ll start by layering up a richly textured background to contrast with the solid, bolder colours of the fonts.

To keep things tidy, create a new folder called ‘Background’ which we’ll be working in for this step.

We’ll set the vibe by downloading this summery sunset photo from Public Domain Pictures:

Sunset Photo

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Paste the image on to your canvas, scaling to fit the height. Move the image across so it frames the sunset nicely:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Create a new Levels Adjustment Layer, with the following settings:

Levels:

Shadows: 0
Midtones: 1.69
Hilghights: 255

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

This is to create a more even tone we can build the texture up from, which is what we’ll move on to next.

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Step 2:

Everyone loves a good grungy paper texture ;) We’ll be using this one from Bashcorpo:

Grungy Paper

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Paste on to your canvas and set the layer blend mode to Multiply:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Let’s add a fun pattern which compliments the colours in the photo nicely, and give the background a more graphic feel. You can find this in the freebies area:

7 High-Res Maishop Backgrounds

Select ‘Digital Paper – Gabriela-08.jpg’ and paste it on to your canvas:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Scale to fit, then set the blend mode to Overlay:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Duplicate the layer, changing the blend mode to Multiply and opacity to 75%:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

To add extra warmth, colour fill a new layer using #F36C4F and set the blend mode to Soft Light. Duplicate the layer:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Finally for this step, create a new colour fill layer using #AC3300 and set the blend mode to Multiply:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Step 3:

We’re going to layer the background up even more with this great freebie texture from the 2 Lil Owls. The colour is just like a Long Island Iced Tea!

2 Lil Owls Free Textures + Extras

Select ‘2LO Jewel Chalks 1.jpg’ and paste it on to your canvas, scaling to fit:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Change the blend mode to Multiply, and we’ll use the next two layers to tone-down the red a bit!

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Duplicate the layer, changing the blend mode to Soft Light:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Next, we’re going to create our own screen texture using this source paper from Camino Palmero:

Old Paper Texture

Paste it on to your canvas, scaling to fit.

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

To get the right screen effect, inverse the layer:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Change the blend mode to Screen and reduce the opacity to 75%:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Finally, create a new Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer. To make sure it only applies to the screen layer, hold down ‘alt’ on your keyboard and click just between the two layers.

Hue/Saturation:

Colorize: selected
Hue: 11
Saturation: 0
Lightness: 0

Cocktail Menu Tutorial
Cocktail Menu Tutorial

That’s our cocktail-coloured background finished! Now, let’s start playing with some fonts…

Step 4:

We’ll be extensively using not only the text, but also the ornaments and extras that are included with many of the font families (including the Microbrew Banners in the freebie pack for this deal) to help familiarise yourself with what’s available (ie: lots!) :)

As there’s going to be a *lot* of text layers adding up in your layers panel, let’s keep them in folders so they’re easier to find. Descriptive layer names will also save you much frustration later on when using the ornament fonts.

With the neat-freak disclaimer over with(!) create a new folder called ‘Header’.

These are the colours and fonts we’ll be using to create this section:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

It’s worth setting up the colours in your swatches, as we’ll be using them throughout the tutorial and make styling the text a bit quicker.

Type each phrase/ornament on a separate layer using with the following properties:

Iced Tea: BrushUp Too, #FFFFFF, 60pt

Long Island: Showcase Script, #FFFFFF, 17pt

n (sun): Four Seasons Dingbat, #FFF586, 61pt

K (hearts): Four Seasons Dingbat, #FFFFFF, 41pt, blend mode: Overlay

W (blue splash): D.I.Y Time Ornaments, #9CE2E6, 88pt

w (underline): D.I.Y Time Ornaments, #C4DF9B, 150pt

t (make): D.I.Y Time Catchwords, #C4DF9B, 55pt

W (corner leaves): D.I.Y Time Dingbats, #8DC63F, 100pt

v (banner): Microbrew Banners, #FDC689, 163pt

Once you’ve got your individual elements, play around with their positioning, scale and angle so you have something similar to the image below:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Quick tip: If you find it difficult to select the specific text you want because everything is close together, temporarily hide some of the surrounding text layers so they can’t be selected by accident.

This might be a good point to take a screen-break, as we’ll be doing some intensive font-tweaking in the following steps!

Step 5:

Create a new group called ‘Ingredients’.

On a new layer, select the Microbrew Banners font, # #9CE2E6, 135pt and type a lowercase “i” (minus the quotation marks).

This should give you the following banner:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

We’re going to create some curved text to sit in here, which we’ll do in Illustrator:

Open up a new document in Illustrator and type the same as we just did (or copy/paste).

Use the pen tool to create a curved line that echoes the bottom of the banner:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Select the ‘Type on a Path’ tool, and click at the very beginning of the line, then set the justification to centre.

Select Daft Brush as the font, set the size to 70pt and color to black and type “You’ll Need”:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Don’t worry that it’s a bit close to the bottom for now, as we’ll reposition this when we paste it into photoshop – which is what we’ll do next.

Copy and paste the text on to your Photoshop canvas and resize to fit the centre of the banner:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

We’ll now create a ‘cut out’ effect using the text that’s just been placed.

With the layer that the text (now a smart object) is on activated, select the Magic Wand tool. Click on any area that isn’t black, not forgetting the inside of the ‘O’ and ‘D’. You can select multiple areas by holding down ‘shift’ on your keyboard whilst you click.

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

With the text still selected, activate the layer below, which has the banner on it. Add a layer mask, then hide the original “You’ll Need” layer to see the effect:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Step 6:

Let’s look a bit more at how the various ornaments and dingbats can help emphasise and add character to the text.

On separate layers, using the Four Seasons Pro Bold font, type:

15ml: #FFF586, 20pt

each of: #FFFFFF, 12pt

Arrange them so that they sit centrally under the banner, and that the baseline roughly aligns with the tips of the banner:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

This looks nice enough as it is, as it’s such a characterful font. But being a creative bunch, let’s take it a little further!

Because it’s a liquid measure, we can emphasise this nature of the text by adding some decorative splashes. To do this select the D.I.Y Time Ornaments font, and type:

o (lowercase): #FFFFFF, 42pt

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Duplicate the layer and flip horizontally via the Edit > Transform menu to create a mirror image, and position on the opposite side of the text.

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

As you can see, this makes the text ‘pop’ a bit more and the symbols serve to mimic the real splashes that’ll be made as the ingredients are all poured together, adding some movement and energy.

Step 7:

Here’s an overview of the fonts we’ll be using to write out the ingredients:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

This section really just requires you to have a bit of a play with the font sizes, line heights and layout to get an arrangement you like.

See what works best for you. You can try typing each word on a separate layer and manually resize and position it using the Transform tool.

Alternatively, you can use the type full phrases and use the Character properties box to select individual words and alter their settings:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

The Leading (pronounced as in ’sledding’) and Font Size should be the only properties you need to adjust.

Set up some grid lines to help you arrange everything and have a bit of a play!

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

The properties for each word as they are in this tutorial piece, are listed below for reference:

Vodka: Thirsty Rough Regular, #FFFFFF

Light Rum: Four Seasons Pro Bold, #FFF586

Gin: Julieta Pro Gota, #FFFFFF

Fresh Lemon Juice: BrushUp Too, #FFF586

Orange Liqueur: Showcase Slab, #FFFFFF

Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice: Microbrew One Inline, #FDC689

D (splash): D.I.Y Time Ornaments, #FDC689

p (spoon): Four Seasons Dingbat, #FFF586, Blend Mode: Screen

1 teaspoon: Four Seasons Pro Bold, #FFFFFF

Sugar Syrup: Showcase Script, #FFFFFF

Cola to top up: Thirsty Rough Regular, #FFF586

Mint & Lemon wedge to garnish: Four Seasons Pro Bold, #8DC63F, #FFFFFF, #FFF586

Note the little touches such as the splash after “squeezed” to make it feel juicy, and the colour changes on”mint” and “lemon wedge” to reflect the ingredients.

Here’s what the completed list looks like:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Step 8:

Now we’ve got the ingredients, we need to let people know what to do with them! Create a new group called ‘Method’ to keep everything in.

We’ll be taking exactly the same approach as we did for writing out the ingredients, for the method.

Here’s a summary of the fonts used for this example:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

As before, have a play with the layout, sizes and angles to see what fits nicely in the space.

For reference, here are the properties for each word:

E (pointing hand): Microbrew Ornaments, #FFF586

Place All Of The: Microbrew Four, #FFF586

ingredients: Thirsty Rough Regular, #FFFFFF

into a cocktail shaker: D.I.Y Time Slab, #FFFFFF, #C4DF9B

with a handful of: Showcase Script, #9CE2E6

ice: Thirsty Rough Black, #9CE2E6

&: Four Seasons Pro Bold, #C4DF9B

Shake: Daft Brush, #FFFFFF

Strain: Thirsty Rough Regular, #FFFFFF

In to a tall glass: Showcase Slab, #C4DF9B

& serve!: Thirsty Rough Regular, #FFF586, #FFFFFF

Once all the text has been created, let’s quickly revisit the word “SHAKE”.

To add a bit more character to the text and emphasise the nature of the work, we’ll be adjusting the height of every other letter using the Baseline Shift feature in the character panel:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Change the number to somewhere between 5pt – 9pt for a balanced effect. Now it looks like the letters are shaking up and down to match the word:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Step 9:

We’ll be using some of the Dingbats and Ornaments for some illustrative touches to complement the text. The fact that these all come included in the font families makes it super easy to do.

We’ll be working in this bit of space remaining below the method:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Create a new group called ‘Cocktail Illustrations’ to keep the layers together.

To get the image of a tall glass and straw, type:

h (lowercase): Four Seasons Dingbat, #FDC689, 75pt

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

For the blue arrow, type the following:

M (uppercase): Microbrew Ornaments, #9CE2E6, 75pt

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Position it so that it points from the phrase “Cola to top up” to the glass, which links the two sections and adds an extra instructional aspect, as well as a decorative one.

We’ll now add the the lemon wedge and mint leaves, as mentioned in the ingredients. To get these, type the following on their own layers:

4 (lemon base colour): Showcase Ornaments, #FFF586 , 24pt

z (lemon outline): Showcase Ornaments, #FDC689, 24pt

d (mint leaf): Showcase Ornaments, #8DC63F, 25pt

Duplicate the mint leaf layer, then flip it horizontally via Edit > Transform. Then resize it using the Transform tool, and adjust the angles of the other items so they look similar to the image below:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

To get the more abstract mint/lemon image above the glass, type the following:

W (uppercase): D.I.Y Time Dingbats, #8DC63F, 87pt

Use the transform tool to adjust the angle so it’s similar to below:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Duplicate the layer, changing the font colour to #FFF586. Use a layer mask to hide the two smaller parts, so that the green version from below shows through.

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

Step 10:

Finally, we’ll add another banner to balance the one at the top of the ingredients section.

To do this, type:

e (lowercase): Microbrew Banners, #FFFFFF, 78pt

Position it so that it’s roughly central:

Cocktail Menu Tutorial

To create the cutout heart, we’ll use the same masking technique as we did in Step 5.

For the heart, type:

S (uppercase): D.I.Y Time Dingbats, #000000, 24pt

Use the Magic Wand tool to select anywhere that isn’t black, then activate the layer below (the banner) and create a layer mask.

Hide the original text/heart layer to see the effect:

  1. Richard says:

    Amazing deal! I wanted to get Gist and Showcase recently and never got around to it. Now I will just get this deal instead. Thanks so much!

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks Richard. Gist and Showcase are incredible fonts. We hope you love using them :). Do let us know how you get on with your new bundle.

  2. Michael Pontikos says:

    Even though I already have 3 of the typefaces in my collection the price is well worth the other 7!

    • Tom Ross says:

      Absolutely! Which fonts did you already own Michael? We’ve been geeking out over these all week, they’re beautiful!

  3. Simon Dormer says:

    Not a good deal … It’s an incredibly GOOD deal, some great fonts and varied selection. Was going to say could do with a preview pdf as didn’t, get one last time but you’ve even thought of that now.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks so much for the wonderful feedback Simon. We’ve definitely been listening to the community, and the .pdf guide was much requested. We hope you love using your new fonts :).

  4. Richard Lyall says:

    The best deal yet – already have one but the others justify the cost several times over! No brainer.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Glad to hear it Richard, please let us know how you get on with your new font library :).

  5. Roz Fruchtman says:

    Hi Tom:

    Are the fonts Web AND Desktop or just Web Fonts.

    These are truly to Die For!

    Roz

    • Tom Ross says:

      Hey Roz, great question. The fonts are desktop AND web fonts. We’ve included absolutely everything we could with this bundle, included the extended license of course. Enjoy!

      • Taylynne says:

        I was wondering this as well. Like others, I have some of the fonts but this is an awesome bundle either way :) (plus I only have the desktop licenses anyway!)

  6. Francesco says:

    Hey, i already asked the same on a past deal, maybe this time there is a different license. Webfont license is intended for one or more websites?

    I’ll bought it anyway, i want just to know if i wasted 27$ on Showcase (and trust me, it was a HUGE saving -it was on sale, launch price- for unlimited pageviews -webfont- and the ordinary .otf .ttf files, at Fontspring).
    Guys you’re amazing, i love fonts, take my money :)

    • Roz Fruchtman says:

      Francesco:

      I don’t think you need to worry about how many sites you can use the fonts for. Here is the Terms of Use (just above, right side of page). I am copying below for convenience.

      Deal terms:

      – Deal includes 10 fonts. All fonts include web versions.
      – Deal includes extended licensing. You can use these fonts within commercial projects and items for resale.
      – You may not redistribute the fonts directly.
      – Files delivered as instant .zip download following purchase (approx 341mb)

      It seems the ONLY thing you CANNOT do is to sell the fonts, which sounds reasonable to me.

      Hope this helps ~a little!

      Warmly,

      Roz Fruchtman

      • Tom Ross says:

        Thanks for clarifying Roz, and thanks for all the support Francesco.

        You can use the fonts across multiple of your sites, but you can’t redistribute them, or allow multiple users to use them (it’s a single license agreement).

        I hope this helps, and if you have any other questions please let me know.

  7. Kayla says:

    Just bought this awesome deal and installed all of the fonts already. Everything went smoothly except for the D.I.Y. Time font. I can see all of the fonts listed in my font manager as installed, but when I go into Illustrator and InDesign, the only options available are brush, sans thin and ink italic. I even tried dragging and dropping the files directly into the font folder and it says that the files are there and if I want to replace them, but when I look through the folder, the only file I can find is D.I.Y. Time Font Regular. I’m not sure what else to do :(

    • Kayla says:

      Update:

      So it looks like if I install the D.I.Y. Time font one at a time, they replace each other unless they are the same font face (i.e. all the slab fonts will stack together, but slab and sans will not). And if I delete the fonts one at a time, one of the ones hidden fonts will magically reappear.

      Also, when I installed D.I.Y. Dingbats by itself, it is listed in Illustrator as D.I.Y. Time with the font style Brush, which is the same as Cachtwords and Brush. When I install Slab and Slab Italic, slab has the font style Brush and Slab Italic is under Ink Italic. I’m guessing that when I install all of the fonts that are under the same font style, one just overrides the rest.

        I’m having the exact same problem. Just the three from DIY Time show up in Illustrator and the only one I can see in my Fonts file is DIY Time Regular. I’m not really understanding how you got around this problem though… You installed the fonts one at a time and started to delete them one at a time and somehow they showed up?

        • Tom Ross says:

          Hey guys, just to let the wider community know, we’ve fixed this issue, and updated the bundle with an amended set of files for D.I.Y, which seem to work perfectly for everyone.

  8. Jevon says:

    Lovely jubbly, been admiring Thirsty, Gist and Microbrew for a while so this deal is perfect for me, thanks.

    • Tom Ross says:

      You’re very welcome Jevon. We’re in love with all these fonts, and those are a lot of fun to work with. Please let us know what you create using them :).

  9. gwenbucknell@gmail.com says:

    I bought these for my own personal use but wondering what the licensing is for commercial use (aka do I need to purchase multiple times for multiple seats?). Please help! Would love to purchase these for work.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Hey Gwen, commercial use is totally fine. However, this is a single user license, so for example if you work on a team, you can’t buy one copy for the entire team, it’s one bundle copy per individual person. However, commercial projects and items for sale are all covered under the extended license. I’ve emailed you about this to clarify :).

    I already had Gist and Thirsty, but the Pintassilgo Prints were on my radar. Getting both along with some other fonts at a price lower than what I could both of the Pintassilgo Print for on the shall-not-be-named dedicated font website is a no-brainer.

    • Tom Ross says:

      They’re lovely aren’t they? These fonts have all got me so fired up and inspired this week to create some new works. Thanks as always for the support Justin, it means a lot man. We hope you love using your new fonts.

  11. Caleb says:

    Not missing this one this time. Thank You So Much! Amazing deals letting everyone at my Institute know about you guys.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks SO much Caleb, we really appreciate you spreading the word. Please let us know if you create anything using your new fonts, we’d love to see. Thanks!

    Great deal. I’m so glad I found this site!

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks for the awesome feedback Anushka. We hope you enjoy your stay here, please let me know if I can help you with anything :).

  13. Kate Childers says:

    Many of the fonts I downloaded (I’ve tried twice now) are corrupt and only showing a few k as the size within the zipped file. There seem to be major problems with this package.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Hey Kate, sorry to hear that you’re having issues. I’m emailing you about this and we’ll have it fixed for you right away. We have tested the files ourselves and they’re working fine for the vast majority of people. This sounds like you may have encountered a download issue. Rest assured, you’ll be able to access your working fonts soon.

      • Kate Childers says:

        I’ve discovered on my own that these are apparently some kind of useless extra files created by Stuffit that only are visable on Windows machines. They are confusing since they duplicate all the other files in the zip file, but are prefaced with a ._ When you try to run them in Windows they show as corrupt.

        • Tom Ross says:

          Thanks for the additional details Kate. That does sound strange, and possibly an issue specific to Stuffit. I’m having our tech guys look into this for you. By the sounds of it your fonts are working correctly though, the issue was just with these extra, obsolete files? I’m emailing you now.

          • Julie Meredith says:
            Excellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 starsExcellent - 5 stars

            Tom, just sent you an email with screenshot but essentially… all of the zip files I open include files with the ._ preface assuming the creator has included Mac versions of the file(s) in question. This is just how Mac files appear on a Windows machine whether using Winzip, Stuffit, etc. Just ignore them and use the 2nd set/group of files with the “regular” Windows filenames.

    I discovered this deal right after completing the survey where I suggested “fun fonts” … were you sitting in my head ?.
    Your bundles are top quality, love them all.
    How far will you go guys with your amazing deals ?

    • Tom Ross says:

      Haha, the Design Cuts community definitely loves a great font bundle. Thanks so much for taking the time to fill in our survey Nicole, we really appreciate it. We’ll keep working hard to bring you guys the best deals we possibly can. If I can help with anything just shout :).

  15. Corinna Djaferis says:

    It’s so difficult to resist your deals! (I have tried-and ultimately failed)

    • Tom Ross says:

      Haha, thanks Corinna :). How are you getting on with your new fonts? We have no will power either when it comes to top quality design resources.

    And just when I thought I hit the jackpot with the Huge Creative Fonts Bundle, you come and blow my mind away with this Monster deal! I {heart} your deals; you truly have the very best! I already had a couple of the fonts in this bundle but the chance to get the rest was a no-brainer. Oh, and it’s not just the wonderful fonts alone; the very best thing is the extended license that you give: that’s the total deal-clincher! Thanks so much, again and yet again!

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks so much for this amazing review Liv. We’re stoked that you’re enjoying your new fonts so much. As always please do send in your work, we’d love to see what you create using these.

    I’ll make it short, I was sad I missed the last two deals, I´m absolutely happy with the monster deal and and I probably won´t miss future deals :)
    Thank you so much, cheers!

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks Susanne, we’re so glad that you’re digging your new fonts. Sorry to hear that you did miss a couple of past deals. I would definitely recommend joining our free newsletter to ensure that you don’t miss any future goodies.

    This is a deal worth eating ramen for a week to get.

    I noticed in the “rate this deal” widget that you make it possible to give zero stars. That’s kind of neat and I’ve never seen that done before. Although I don’t think I’ll ever have to make use of it on this site.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Haha, thanks Carl! I remember the days of living on ramen at college. How are you finding your new fonts?

      We do like to be totally transparent with our deals and their ratings, so really we like to let the awesome Design Cuts community speak for us in that respect. That being said, if we ever see even a 4 star review, we know we have to work harder :).

      Thanks for all the support!

  19. Travis Mullen says:

    Tried to buy this deal several times, but I keep getting sent to a blank page after I enter my credit card information. I’m not sure if I’ve been charged each time or not, but I’ve tried both Chrome and Firefox, so I don’t think it’s my browser.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Hey Travis, sorry to hear that you’re having issues with your order. I’m emailing you about this now to help, and we should get you setup in no time.

  20. Jerry says:

    WOW Sick bundle! I can’t wait to get home to purchase. The thing that sold me was having the web fonts AND extended license included.

    I haven’t been this excited for a bundle in a while.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks Jerry. We really went all out to make this bundle as special as possible. We’re so glad that the web fonts and license will help your work. :)

  21. Richard Lyall says:

    Hi … just working through the new fonts and am having some issues with DIY Time from LatinoType.

    1. In Indesign\Photoshop CS6 only Sans Thin, Sans and Sans Italic show up, and I can’t find the Brush,CachtWords, Dingbats, Ink, Ink-Italic, Ornaments or Slab versions in the dropdown.

    Where are the other fonts? They are definitely installed.

    2. Also in Indesign, if I enter some text and set it to Sans Thin, the text appears as expected, but when I change it to Sans Italic or Slab Italic, the text disappears.

    So something’s not quite right – is anyone else having problems? I’m on Win 7 Pro x64.

    Thanks
    Richard

  22. Richard Lyall says:

    Sorry – still an issue with DIY time. “Sans-Regular” does not appear in Photoshop\InDesign etc. There is a font listed as “Sans” but it is different from the Sans-Regular font file and it looks identical to Slab.

    • Richard Lyall says:

      Sorted now – had installed the updated fonts on top of the first version, and the system had gotten confused. I uninstalled again, then rebooted, then reinstalled the fonts and everything seems to be in order now. Lesson – uninstall first :)

      • Tom Ross says:

        Glad to hear everything’s working for you now Richard :). Thanks for updating everyone here. Just a note for the DC community; we have been chatting through this stuff with Richard via email, we definitely hadn’t let it go ignored!

  23. Bronwyn Smith says:

    Hi Tom
    I’m new to all of this,just wondering can I use the fonts (in bundle)on my laptop (windows),I also have photoshop installed as well on my laptop.
    It’s probably a really basic question,but it’s necessary before I buy bundle.thanks for the help Tom.
    From
    Bronwyn

    • Tom Ross says:

      Hey Bronwyn. Don’t worry at all, there are no bad questions and we were all new to all this at some stage :). In a word, yes, that’s absolutely fine to use the fonts on your laptop, and they’re compatible with Photoshop and other graphics/text programs.

      • Bronwyn Smith says:

        Thanks heaps Tom,they are just what I was looking for,yay so glad I found you.have a lovely day.

    Before i downloaded this, it was:
    get project -> find font

    and now I’ve found myself going:
    awesome font -> invent project

    I want to give you guys a massive hug.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks for the fantastic feedback Caz. This is one of my favourite reviews since we launched Design Cuts, as it’s exactly how we want you guys to feel. If these resources can not only save you time/money/stress, but inspire you, then that’s perfect :).

  25. Linda says:

    Are these fonts tt or OT or PostScript

  26. Jeane says:

    Yay! So many great fonts in one bundle. Thanks for putting this together at such an amazing price – and web fonts too! Double yay!

  27. Jodi says:

    Will these all work in Photoshop Elements? Yes, I’m a cheapo who only has Elements! ;-)

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Jodi, once the fonts are installed to your computer they should absolutely be usable in any design or text based software. so you can use them in Photoshop type programs, as well as Word or Pages.
      I hope this helps. :)

  28. If you look at how other fonts are sold elsewhere, it would be a no brainer to buy Design Cuts’ font deal. I even bought the one I missed the last time. I didn’t know about fonts and since I learned when it was offered as the upsell, I grabbed it!

    Other sites sell ONLY ONE choice ~desktop or web fonts. IF you want both, YOU PAY for both.

    NONE Of them sell with EXTENDED rights ~at least that I’ve seen so far!

    If you look around you will see that what I am saying is true! I get nothing from saying all of this, I’m just a “sharing kind of gal,” who likes a bargain! ;)

    ~Roz Fruchtman

    • Tom Ross says:

      Wow, this is so incredibly kind of you Roz. Thanks so much for sharing the good word and for such an amazing review :). You rock!

  29. Duane Rumback says:

    I keep buying your deals. You guys should have a punch card kind of thing where you get every 5th deal free or something like that :)

    • Tom Ross says:

      Haha, thanks for the suggestion Duane. We do have some cool features lined up, which we hope you’ll enjoy :). Thanks for all the support!

  30. Kate says:

    Are these fonts save-able only on the computer you purchase them on or can they be transferred to multiple computers you’re working on? I know it says single user only, so wasn’t sure if they were move-able to more than one computer…

    • Tom Ross says:

      Hey Kate, with a single user license like this you’re able to use the fonts across multiple machines, but just not multiple users :). I hope this helps!

  31. Seb says:

    Hi, it’s a great deal indeed.
    Just a question though : how do I get the ornaments and banners shown on the Daft Brush demonstration ? Are they part of another font of the bundle ?

    • Tom Ross says:

      Great questions Seb. The banners in those preview images are purely for display I’m afraid, although the Microbrew Banners font gives you a similar results.

    I was super excited to buy these fonts, but, wow, nothing has ever made Suitcase crash like these fonts do. Seems like it might be a total waste of money, because now, even after removing all of the fonts, it’s making Suitcase crash erratically. I kinda now wish I would have just passed on this one. What a shame. :-(

    • Tina Muller says:

      Hey Amy, I’s sorry you’re having trouble installing the fonts with Suitcase. We haven’t actually had any reports of the fonts crashing Suitcase, which leads me to think that this is an isolated issue.
      I know that Fontbook has been a little glitchy lately, since its last update, so I can only imagine that it is the same with Suitcase. Would you mind installing the fonts manually, i.e. dragging the fonts into your library>fonts folder directly (on Mac)?
      I’ve also emailed you about this, so we can definitely get this sorted for you, no problem at all.

  43. Angela Ang says:

    Ugh, I missed this deal. Is there any way to still purchase it?

    By the way, I think you need to space these deals maybe a month apart, because I’m going broke. ;) I appreciate and am learning a lot from the tutorials, too. Keep up the great work!

    • Tina Muller says:

      Thanks so much Angela! I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying the site, as well as the tutorials. :)

    I bought the aforementioned “next font deal” and was offered this one as a bonus, but I failed to get it in time, and now the bonus offer has expired for me.

    When’s it gonna be back open, or is there a way to re-offer it to me as a bonus?
