In this class you'll learn how to create 70’s style hand lettering.  We’ll cover everything you need to know to add the kind of bold color, drastic variation, and playful decorations that were so popular in the 70s and are now popping up all over in the design world on stationary, clothing, home decor.

I’ll be demonstrating the lettering styles on my iPad in Procreate, but you could do this same process with any other digital design program or on paper.

When you take this class you’ll get all of the Procreate brushes and letter style guides I use to create my 70s style lettering.  The set includes 7 texture brushes that will help you add a vintage feel to your compositions, 8 70s style decoration stamps, and four letter style guides that will take you through every step of creating 70s style serif and script letters.

First we’ll use a bell bottom inspired serif to create a playful lettering composition.  We’ll talk about how to create a fluid 70s feel, and I’ll give you lots of ideas for quotes and 70s color palettes.
