About This Class

Hi and say hello to my new class entitled "Lettering In Print Design: Design Your Own Brush Lettering Print Art".

This class is more about creative freedom and exploring different mediums to create unique designs, than mere focusing on just one technique. In this class you will learn how to turn your everyday writing into a lettering style using regular tools like a sharpie.

You can use these techniques to design anything for print or digital. You can design your own holiday greeting cards with it and send it to your friends or family!

I will introduce you to different styles of lettering and how you can derive your own style with practice. You will also get a lettering practice sheet with this class to try three different styles of brush-pen lettering. 

We will see how to combine different mediums in a single design-work by vectoring them in Adobe Illustrator. I will introduce you to watercolors and how to use them to paint custom watercolor elements. You will learn how to digitize watercolor illustrations using Adobe Illustrator. Vectoring your watercolor designs in Illustrator have unique advantages. You can easily edit and re-use them in different designs. Finally, using it all together to design some unique art, in Adobe Illustrator. 

The challenge while working with multiple mediums is to find a connection between them. And that’s why working on each element in digital form, solves that problem pretty well. Would love to see you all inside this class and create something special. You can join me inside and start learning. If you have any doubts then please do ask me. Bye! ;)
