We set our example first in Illustrator, converted the type to paths,
and assigned a stroke that looked about right. Saving as an EPS file, the layout
artist simply imports them into Quark or whatever. For our demonstration here, we
imported them into Photoshop for the final touches.
Load the selection -> Modify > Expand a pixel or two, and delete. That leaves the white space around the original letter. Repeate that sequence a few times and now you got me QUAKING!
Too much trouble??? Well... in that case, just set your type in Photoshop or ColorIT! and open the new “Eye Candy” plug-in from Alien Skin and hit the “Jiggle” command!*
