About This Class

Today we'll go through the in's and out's of how to draw the letter S correctly in Illustrator. When I started learning lettering, the letter S was the biggest trouble maker. I could never get it to look smooth and natural and I would always spend too much time working on it, readjusting the handles over and over again.  In this class, I will share with you a few easy techniques that will help you draw the perfect S in Adobe Illustrator. We'll look at existing fonts and study reference material, in order for us to get a better grasp on how the tricky letter S can be drawn.

So...see you in class!

Creative Consultant & Graphic Designer

My name is Ana-Irina and I am graphic designer living in Zürich. I love drawing and painting as my artsy hobby, but my true passion is putting my talent to use and creating graphics with a purpose. Here, on Skillshare, I am both a student and a teacher; I follow other graphic designers to expand my own horizon of creativity and I teach classes which I hope can help others learn new and fun skills.
