Project Description

Design an experimental hand lettering project using tool of your choice and techniques taught in this class.

Start by choosing a theme, a quote or any phrase that you want to work on. Then do a nice creative research. You can design a mood-board if you can, it's great to use them while doing any type of design project. You can see my other brush lettering classes to learn few other helpful things!

You can digitize your art using Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. Which will further enhance your designs.You can find classes related to Photoshop or Illustrator all over Skillshare catalogue. In case you haven't used them before, that will be really helpful to you.

I would love to see you complete the project and don't forget to post it in project gallery.

The deliverables can be:

  • Description of the chosen phrase or quote that you plan to use for this project.
  • Mood-Board.
  • Sketches.
  • Basic Rendering.
  • Final Design.
