Welcome to my new class! I love hand lettering because it's as diverse as any other artform. On one hand it's creative and on the other hand it's expressive. If you are a designer, you should start learning this stuff, because it really enhances your power of expression using design.

This class is something that I would have loved to have when I started out. Because in general it's very overwhelming to learn. When you are starting out, with so much of confusion and resources arround, I would suggest you to grab any tool of your choice and start drawing some letters. Do some practice and work on few designs. You will love it more when you start doing.
