Times- Type Factory by paultheillustrator Times- Type Factory by paultheillustrator
Part of a series of posters I done for the ISTD brief 'Type Factory'. Type Factory is a fictional museum of typography for which I had to design an identity along with a raage of promotional material.

Times- Type Factory by ~paultheillustrator This deviant just joined this week, and already have a very impressive gallery to keep an eye on! What must I say about this piece? Amazing 3D Typography with the look of a newspaper, nicely executed, great composition and perspective, very original and made for a museum of Typography in Ireland! Wow.

Magazine Ad? Museum piece? I could see it as both. LOVE it.
brilliant work! Apsolutely love it. What program did you use to make the 3D lettering? And how did you get it to look like it's made of newspaper clippings? Would love to hear how you made this.
For all the Type Factory pieces I used built the 3D environment, lighting and some textures in Maya. I then exported a TIFF still from Maya and brought is into Photoshop and added further textures to make it feel more like an image as opposed to a still from a video. After that, I used various adjustments layers in Photoshop (Hue/Saturation, Brightness/Contrast, Levels, Curves) to add colour (no colour was added in Maya) and to get the tone of the image just right.

If you are new to 3D software, I would definitely recommend using Cinema 4D instead of Maya. Cinema 4D is FAR easier to use and you can get great results far quicker. ThHere are tons of great Cinema 4D tutorials up on YouTube which will show you how to create 3D type.
good composition :)
really cool bro!
