PhotoShop: Type Tool and Clipping Mask

Type tool and clipping mask

The purpose of this task was to give us a chance to play around and explore more of what Adobe PhotoShop could offer. we have been given an option to one of six styles of alphabet and then pick a letter to use in that style. with the help of the free transform tool I have rescaled my chosen letters to the desired size and position in my square. the letters should have been no longer legible as the aim was to make visually interesting shapes, I have produced six documents using different letters and typefaces. In addition to the first six files I have created another six files but this time experimenting with colour. I used the new fill layer to apply a plain chosen colour as a background.

After that I have been given a quote of a famous graphic designer John Lasseter which I had to retype in one of the given typefaces. the task was to arrange the quote in an attractive and effective layout by resizing and repositioning each of the words. To add on when the arrangement was finished I grouped all layers and found an image of the designer and then positioned the image layer above the grouped layers and selected it. Then I created a clipping mask and the image popped up through the letters. I was very pleased to see the outcome and found out that this technique is very effective so I would adapt it into my further assignments.
