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!
