About This Class

About a class.

I am going to help you to make a monogram for yourself, your imaginable brand or just your favourite person. The monogram will be based on a custom lettering which will be done in a quite free and expressive manner. I will share process how to make your lettering with a signature and unique style. So we will go through steps how to naturally find your own manner by letting it go. We will be ready to prepare a file for making a real stamp at the end of this process.

You can join this class and make only a monogram (without real stamp) but to make something realistic is always fun. You can find your way how you would like to use the vector file: you can even print it or just make something fun. The task is to make a personal monogram and use it in your own way. 

 You’ll learn how to:

  1. Choose brushes and paper
  2. Relax your handwriting
  3. Understand the letter form
  4. Make your own style with a personality
  5. Refine and make final touches
  6. Select an additional font for your monogram
  7. File preparation
