In today’s video tutorial you’re going to learn the process for creating a mosaic text effect, using a mix of Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.
This kind of tiled effect has been quite trendy over recent years, made popular by Nick Misani and his ‘Fauxsaics’ series, where he would produce illustrations of the place names he traveled to in the style of the kind of classic mosaic tile art found in hotel foyers and subway stations.
Those Fauxsaics are painstakingly created by hand by drawing each individual tile, but my process uses the power of Adobe Illustrator to achieve a similar look. You’ll then transfer the art over to Photoshop to help boost the realism with texturing and the must-have pair of superimposed feet.
