New typographical goodness

  • In Words Are Pictures, Craig Ward creates beautiful type treatments.  I especially like his A-Z ligatures and Lucha Libre. [Via]
  • The Photoshop Roadmap blog pulls together tutorials for The Best 80 Photoshop Text Effects on the Web.  "This guide includes 78 Photoshop tutorials and 2 impressive collections of Photoshop Actions, plus 3 books on the subject." [Via]
  • Digital Arts features a tutorial on making 3D type using Photoshop plus a 3D app.  I continue to look forward to a developer packaging simple 3D creation tools (extrusion, lighting, warping, etc.) as a plug-in for Photoshop Extended, so that all this stuff can be done in one place while staying re-editable.

  • Type purists might squirm a bit, but Macworld offers advice on bulking up your font collection quickly & affordably.

    That Photoshop Roadmap list of Text Effect tutorials is pretty good. They included all of the popular effects…including some new ones that I haven’t seen. That cactus font is “sharp”!
