Enrol in Lettering Masterclass
This course exposes you to different techniques and tactics used in creating jaw-dropping custom illustrative lettering for better story-telling.
What you'll learn
Structure and composition of lettering
This is the building block of every stunning lettering you see out there. Since hand-lettering is organic and different from computer generated fonts, you’ll learn to create grid systems to support the composition of lettering. At the end of this process, every letter in a word or phrase should look like they truly belong together.
Vectoring styles, approach and processes
Now the sketch is done. Grid is set. What next? You’ll learn to turn your sketches into digital, scalable forms. This stage requires mastering the pen, brush and shape builder tools in Adobe Illustrator; connecting letters using ligature and filling up spaces with swashes.
Type treatments and rendering
The final stage is where we put flesh on the bones of vectored lettering. At this point, we learn to ask vital questions and determine the kind of treatment that would resonate with or excite the target audience. You’ll learn to create mind-blowing treatments that leave your audience in awe, using different modern techniques.
