Design a Retro Futuristic Poster in Pixelmator
This futuristic poster is very fun to do, and you can play with colors and sizes, so this is easy to do!
Open Pixelmator and create a new document. For size I’m using 1200x1000px. After that fill the Background Layer with Gradient Tool with red and light yellow colors, like in picture below:
Use a large soft brush to dab two spots of color onto a new layer. I’ve chosen a bright pink and yellow. After that just change Opacity to 85%.
Add a new layer then hold the shift key throughout to constrain the axis to 45 degrees.
Now fill it with color you like. Then repeat earlier step just this time use different sizes and colors. You can use Gradient Tool too.
After that repeat it and create a cross with various rectangles, play with colors and sizes, then it should look like in picture below:
Now just change this layer Blending to Soft Light.
Go to Layer > New Layer > Choose picture… and choose grunge picture. Go to Edit > Rotate 180° and transform the picture. After that just change Blending to Overlay and Opacity to 60%.
