Our Type Project series takes you through typographic history, providing step-by-step directions to re-create historical type designs from scratch. Here designer Nigel French shows how to create a gorgeous postcard from the Art Deco era: one of the most influential and enduring design styles of the twentieth century. The technique combines a hand-traced framing device, built in Adobe Illustrator, with some Typekit fonts and Photoshop layer effects, resulting in a print-ready postcard worthy of sending to anyone you regard highly.
