There are many visual arts that aid the written word. Chief among them, I think, has to be typography; the art of creating appealing lettering. I thought I would do a quick search, and pick some of my favourites, and tell you just why I like them, whether it is just the quote, just the design, or a mix of both.

To help you out in your quest for proficiency, each month we compile a list of some of the best Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator tutorials we find on the internet, all so that you do not have to dig for days on end, searching for that great tutorials you are looking for.
We love looking at wonderful, smart, and creative designs all day. But to look at them, they need to actually exist, and there is no way that they will just magically appear, without a good designer putting in the effort to make them. Learning is not a short process. In fact, learning never stops. There is no actual goal of learning, because learning is the goal. We do it because we want to get better at what we do, because it is fun, and because it expands our horizons.
No matter how good a designer you are, there is always room for improvement. Perfection is, after all, unattainable. It is something that we aim for, rather than something we reach. But that is the beauty of it; there would not be much to do, once you have learned everything there is to know about designing, or anything else, for that matter.
To help you learn how to use as many of these as possible, we make monthly roundups of some of the best tutorials we can find that month, and now it is time for the Illustrator and Photoshop tutorials roundup for May. If you want to check out the March roundup, please click this link, here.
About 200 years ago (give or take) it was a real risky choice, making your living out of producing images. Painters were, mostly, starving bohemians that sold their works for a meal or something to drink, and the few that did have success where mostly born into it. Now, in an age where basically everyone has access to information, everybody wants art.
