First Tutorial for Advanced Photoshop Magazine

First Tutorial for Advanced Photoshop Magazine

We all have dreams and goals in life, some of them are pretty doable and some are just crazy impossible! Well, I just realized one of my crazy ones! I finally got my first feature in the prestigious Advanced Photoshop Magazine based in UK with readers all over the world.


Back in College, I remember that I always wanted to improve my skills, so I started to buy books and magazines for additional education. One of the favourites was the Advanced Photoshop Magazine. It’s with this magazine that I’ve learned the existence of designers such as Radim Malinic, James White, Pete Harrison, Chuck Anderson and of course Fabio Sasso that all became my design heroes.

I remember that I’ll just keep saying that I’ll do my best so one day, I’ll be featured in Advanced Photoshop. Years goes by and I completely forgot about that dream until 1 month ago I received this special email from Advanced Photoshop requesting for a tutorial. Totally confused, humbled and excited!

Design a Neon Type Tutorial

This tutorial is based and inspired from the Retro Futurism, a trend in the creative arts. A trend that always have been a true influence to designers from an old-fashioned future perspective from the Sixties. I hope you’ll get inspired and learn something new!

You can buy this issue either in stores or online via the Advanced Photoshop Store.
