I came across Pawel Norbert‘s paint streak typography a while back and completely fell in love with it. There’s so much color, so much energy, so much personality displayed in just a single letter. With the addition of the Mega Paint Streak asset pack I created a few weeks back, Pawel’s work came rushing back to mind, as it paired similar textures with my most favorite element of design: typography. In this week’s tutorial, I share how I would create a similar type of paint streak typography using Photoshop. Once created, we’ll add shadows + highlights to finish it off with some extra dimension. You’ll be able to use the artwork you create to either gift, sell as a customized art print, wallpaper your desktop, or keep it for yourself + display it on your own wall! Not too shabby for ~15 minutes! Let’s get started!
