In today’s tutorial I’ll be demonstrating how to create a vintage-style art deco poster using Inkscape. The text objects will be stacked on top of each other with a banner in the center. We’ll also be doing a bit of texture masking to give the design more of an aged look.
Learn How To Design Logos
If you want to learn how I come up with logo design ideas, be sure to check out my Logo Design Academy - an interactive 18-part video course where you will learn my entire creative process for coming up with logo ideas and implementing them.
The following is just a brief overview of the steps taken to create these text posters. For complete step-by-step instructions please watch the video tutorial at the top of the page.
The resources we’ll be using for this tutorial are as follows…
Create A Vintage Text Poster
To get us started, the first thing we’re going to do is create separate lines of text for our poster.
Then we will apply the fonts listed in the resources section above. I’ll be using League Gothic for all of the text objects except the middle text object (“VINTAGE”) which we will use Zabatana for.

Next we’re going to size up all of the text objects so that they’re all equal in width, except for the middle text which will be fairly larger.
Now we’re going to create a rectangle over the middle text object that will represent a banner.
We’ll add some fish tails to the banner and create a slightly larger red offset.
Now we’ll use that red offset to subtract from the fish tails of the ribbon.
Next we’re going to shear the text up slightly.
Then we’ll create a border going around the outside of the stacked text.
We’ll add another slightly smaller outer border as well.
And then we’ll add little accent pieces to the top and bottom corners of the border.
Now we can go ahead and add some color.
And the final step will be to apply our grunge texture as a mask.
And that should do it for our design. That is is how you can create vintage text posters with Inkscape. If you have any questions simply leave a comment below. As always, thanks for watching!
