Project Description

Follow along with the video lessons and learn how to create your own unique lettering piece using Adobe Photoshop. Learn how to create a helpful lettering guide, as well as a Photoshop hand-lettering brush & eraser. You will also be able to pick up some time-saving Photoshop shortcuts as you watch me create lettering from start to finish.

Together, we will explore and apply the elements of modern scripts that we see in current calligraphy, brush lettering, & type design. This class is packed with lots of useful letterform tips to help you style your script lettering. So click Enroll and let's get started!

BONUS: As a bonus, this class includes a video about how I vectorize my lettering while keeping the same ink-to-paper, hand-lettered look. (This portion is optional and does not need to be included as part of the class project.)
