Art Deco architecture movement was started in Europe in the first decade of the 20th century and its aesthetic is often characterized by stylized and geometric shapes. The influence of this modern and elegant style also can be seen in typography. The 'Art Deco' font/typeface is always used in display designs with the retro feel and look as their decorative nature. Here are just a few of them and I meant only list the simplest look of Art Deco font which you can download for free. Uppercase typeface, highly condensed and fairly low or extreme high horizontal crossbars are mostly their characteristic. Read More

Aprille Display

Aprille Display is a set of Art Deco style font with geometric look on the glyphs and numeral characters. Some characters are as roundy as solid circle and some are condensed with high crossbar. Pretty simple one.

Magna is created with a unique "vintage" style. The typeface is categorized as black condensed and the set contains capital characters and the numerals are very much stylized but keeping their entire construction dead simple.

Live Trace in Illustrator can have complex settings. The traced object often gets lots of anchor points and the jagged edges even you thought you have did your best to use the Tracing Preset. Here's a quick tips that I want to share with you. Read More







After your vector object is traced, just go to Object > Path > Simplify and set the values of the Curve Precision and Angle Threshold.



You can also compare the simplified vector object with the original one by clicking the Show Original checkbox in Options. You'll see the outline of the original object vector surrounding or in linear layer with the simplified object vector, just to make you easier to further edit some of the anchor paths.
