About This Class

Welcome to my new class! This class focuses on creating engaging designs derived from hand-letterings. It’s more about a specific technique where you encapsulate your hand letterings inside a recognizable shape to enhance the overall concept. I will tell you about how you can tell a story, how you can engage and how you can create effective hand lettering designs using this creative technique.

If you have just started out or you know the basics of lettering in any form, then this class is for you. It's about the tools and techniques that can help you in the long run as a designer.

Using the learnings from this class, you can design beautiful lettering works, to tell a story which is powerful and much more engaging than just a hand lettered piece. So hit enroll and jump right in!

The tools that are required is nothing special. Any pencil for sketching and a brush pen for inking is enough to get going. But for your ease and curosity, here are few of the tools suggested:

  • Brush-pens: TomBow Dual Brushpens,  Pentel Fude Brush Pen (Bold & Medium) or Pentel Color Brush Pens. You can use any refillable or soft brushpens for practicing.
  • Pencils: Mechanical or any simple pencils.
  • Eraser.
  • Scanner.
  • Sheet: You can use the copier paper too. But try to use bleed-proof marker sheets. Or anything which can withstand wet ink of a brush-pen. For practicing anything is good.

You can use any supplies that you own right-now. These are the basic tools that you can find at any art supplies store.
