About This Class

In 2012 I started incorporating hand-lettering as part of my freelance graphic design career. By 2014 the series, Silhouettes, wasn't just an idea, it was out in the world and my approach to lettering has never looked the same. I found that bringing together two of my favorite creative mediums, photography and lettering, allowed for the words in my favorite quotes to become more impactful, more meaningful and often more beautiful.

In this class I'll walk you through my process for bringing together my two favorite mediums, photography and lettering, to help take your favorite words from simple text to a flowing emotion enhanced by shape!

I loved this class 'Silhouettes in Human Form'. I have long been a fan of Hannah's work via Instagram, so when I saw she had a Skillshare class on the subject of her hand lettered silhouettes, I enrolled immediately. This class was fantastic! I loved seeing Hannah hand letter her piece and she shared great resources for stock photography and explained how to use Illustrator, which has always been a stumbling block for me. I highly recommend this class to anyone passionate about hand lettering and fun projects!
