In today’s tutorial I’ll be demonstrating how you can use Inkscape to create a retro-style text poster. The functions we’ll be focusing on in this lesson are the Extrude extension and texture masking in particular.
For this design I used the heavy variation of the Lato font, which can be downloaded for free here: https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/lato
