Vector Urban Lettering Text Effect Tutorial – Illustrator Tutorial

Tom with Satori Graphics, back again with another Illustrator tutorial, today we create some cool vector urban lettering with this Illustrator text effect tutorial. It is fairly easy and simple to recreate this urban lettering text effect, so don’t be put off that the length of the tutorial is fairly long. It is not exactly beginner material, but it isn’t so advanced either.

We will start off by generating our lettering in Illustrator, you can create this yourself with a Wacom or use a preset typeface. I then show you how to edit your lettering and then we start to add the effects that will result in the final urban style effect to the design. There are 2 links for vector downloads that you can use for this tutorial linked below, as well as the typeface I used. The vectors will help to add to the urban feeling of the lettering design, and are essential if you are going for this effect.
