Previously in our invitation design series, we have featured some of our lovely designersâ€™ work that showcased the latest trends of vintage or retro styles in the invitation design world.
Then we got a sneak peek of what goes on behind the curtain by asking the designers to share the process and show us how their designs were born. Lisa Barbero showed her deep appreciation for hand-drawn typography, while Erin from Simple te Design emphasized the importance of how â€śthe use of textures, shadows, and even handle lettering can really bring a design to lifeâ€ť.
Now that we have covered some of the basics of the vintage and retro style, itâ€™s time for us to get our hands dirty and start designing! Yet before we do so, pingg has decided to share with you some of the websites that will provide you the tools that youâ€™ll need to get started.
Itâ€™s always a good idea to expose your eyes to wide range of graphic design. You never know where you will find happy accidents!
