Hand Lettering 101

  • Made at CRAFT 4620 East Cesar Chavez Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

There are two key ingredients to any hand lettered piece: the creative fonts used, and the composition of your layout. We will tackle an introduction to both of these concepts in my Hand Lettering 101 class. Once you have chosen your phrase, I will walk you through building a composition grid, shape, or free form flow for your lettering. From there, we will discuss three basic hand drawn fonts that can create a myriad of fancy letterforms - and you can use those basics to apply creative fonts to your piece. Lastly, we will tackle adding embellishments to your lettering to create a cohesive design. You will walk away with a finished hand lettered masterpiece, a selection of my favorite illustration tools, and a packet of sample grids and shapes to use on your next project!
