We’ve put together a huge list of tutorials for both Photoshop and Illustrator for you to go through. Why? Well, we believe that design, even more than other jobs, is one where you need to constantly strive to learn new things and to continually improve. That’s the reason why we’ve put together a list of our favorite 40 tutorials of the year 2013.
Letters and writing are very helpful elements in every designer’s work. They help the designer send a message in the easiest way possible, and also help emphasize the existing message in an illustration. Although the Internet provides very large font resources, sometimes the design needs more than just a font. Vector letters are expanded letters with effects added to them, such as: graphic styles, gradients, 3D effects and others.
In this tutorial we will take an in-depth look on Illustrator’s Appearance panel. With it, we’ll create an amazing effect that you can apply to any type text, while preserving the text’s editability. As result, you’ll master the Appearance panel’s features to the extent where you can build your own styles.
Do you remember our last design tutorial on how to draw a vector pirate skull made by our designer Ioana Șopov? Well, she just made another awesome one, on how to draw an astrochimp.

It’s time to see all the Illustrator and Photoshop wonders that have been created (and taught) this past month. You can always update your design skills, pick up a new trick or two or even end up buying a vector pack or vector illustration along the way.

So let’s join hands and grow together by taking a look at the most interesting and popular design tutorials from February 2013.
