Retro Waves Poster Design in Pixelmator
In this tutorial I want to show you how to create simple, but at the same time very impressive tutorial. I called it ”Retro Waves”, because it really looks like some calorific waves.
Open Pixelmator file and create a new image, I’m using 1110×470 pixels for the size. Select Paint Bucket Tool and fill the ”Background Layer” with beige color.
With Pen Tool create a shape like in the image below.
Duplicate ”Shape” layer about eight times and then add them in one line. Select all these layers, after that go to Layer > Merge Layers. Then rename it in ”Wave”.
With Paint Bucket Tool fill ”Wave” layer with a little bit darker color than the font is. Using Move Tool put ”Wave” layer like in the image below.
Duplicate ”Wave” layer and fill it with dark beige color.
Using the technology that I showed in earlier steps you can create more ”Waves”.
Add a Texture, change layer’s Blending to Multiply and reduce the Opacity to 50%.
Add a Texture 2, change layer’s Blending to Overlay and reduce the Opacity to 42%.
