Being a HUGE fan of photoshop and it’s brush options. i’ve decided to post this link for everyone. Take the 20 minutes to do the tutorial, and if you’re in a crunch for time. at least skip to the section about the brush options. It’s MORE than worth any designer’s time, especially if you’re a photoshop junkie like myself!
Mix Cool Retro Curves Into Your Photographs
In Effects by Fabio
I’m a huge fan of James White’s work. I love the way he plays with geometric elements and colors. It gives a retro feeling to the design, but at the same time he uses a modern approach.
