Type tool + clipping mask


“Digital design is like painting, expect the paint never dries”

-Neville Brody Graphic Designer

The given was was to use the clipping mask to cut out the image bellow it and show the multiple typefaces and fonts with the chosen picture.A clipping mask is a group of layers to which a mask is applied. The bottom layer, or base layer, defines the visible boundaries of the entire group. For example, suppose you have a shape in the base layer, a photograph in the layer above it, and text in the topmost layer. If the photograph and text appear only through the shape outline in the base layer, they also take on the opacity of the base layer.


Neville Brody is is an English graphic designer, typographer who is the best graphics designer of his generation.We reached such a recognition by being involved in the British independent music scenes in early 1980s.Being and art director Brody experimented with the beginnings of a new visual language that consisted of a mixture of visual and architectural elements. Later he was able to put these ideas into practice and to set new precedents through the innovative styling of The Face magazine (1981-1986). When working in The Face magazine Brody managed to completely revolutionise how the designers and readers approached this medium.His style was unique and in a short time was imitated in magazines and advertisements of the eighties.Even if Neville Brody has hidden from the public eye to be seen he still works on creating unique and different typefaces. When talking about Brody people referred to him as a “star typographer” for his amazing work in the 80s and now.
