Project Description

A typeface based on Marvel Comic superheros and created as paper toys.

Production Lesson(s)

Preparing files for print could be a bitch if you don't keep your file clean and your layers cleaner. I designed 12 toy characters, after a while working through the project, Illustrator was slowing down. A good note to keep is changing your Layer Panel Options, the Row Size to small, helped kept my workflow moving. I also was using a ton of layer masks in my CMYK file, remember always go with registration black to cover your mask!”
