Photoshop Tutorial: The Essential Guide to Creating Vintage-Style Posters

Vintage means "antique" or from a particularly fine year (when it comes to wines.) To be an "Antique" in the U.S. it has to be at least 50 years old. Except for automobiles, and that's 25 years old. Much of the "vintage" simulations you see online aren't really "vintage" but what someone thinks is vintage. In Europe and the Middle East, designers will use the term "vintage" just to get clicks, including any look from the 1970s, back to pre-historic. We're thrilled to have Annabelle provide us with this poster design that seems to simulate a poster from the Art Deco period. April 4, 2017
