Typography for Beginners


Thanks a lot Robbie.

I forgot how much tutorials blow up on DA. 70 favourites and 400 views in less than a day.


Ok i have made myself this new sig. Tried to use a new font and tried to make the text be styled better. What is everyones thoughts on my new sig?

(not to go anymore off topic, but...) well Raven, the only legible part is the Raven part, placement is bad, the tiny writing under it is a step up, but I feel it's executed poorly and doesn't contribute to the effect.

Anyone about with a decent knowledge in GFX?

Trying to figure out transparent background sigs like the one above.

I have added the alpha channel and cut and saved my image as a .png file, everything looks right and the transparency is there but when I upload to a website (here) I get the white background.
Does the site still support this? is it my file preferences? (I have tried playing with them)
Still not sure what I am missing - can't find info anywhere.

I have tried saving it as .gif as that file supports transparency too; didn't work either.


Ps. I didnt want to make a new thread for this
