About This Class

Have you tried different lettering techniques and you want to go a step forward and nail specific styles? This class is for you. In this class, we will speak about storytelling with lettering and how to find the right style and tone for a project. We will create our very personal library of lettering inspiration and work towards finding the right shape for a letter. We will cover the most popular lettering styles, not by showing templates that you can copy, but by understanding the logic behind them and discovering specific methods to work with each one of them.
