What better way to animate your lettering than by making it appear to be written? This course will teach you how to do just that!

Part of my Hand Lettering In Motion series, this course will teach you how to bring your hand lettering from Photoshop or Illustrator to After Effects. Then we'll explore many different ways of using the Write On technique to bring your lettering to life. You'd be surprised at how many differnt way you can use this technique! And it can be applied to any text, not just hand lettering.

This class is for anyone. Whether you’re a pro After Effects user or just started playing around with the program, you’ll learn everything you need to know to achieve this effect. If you've never used After Effects before, check out one of my beginner's classes first: Hand Lettering in Motion - The Beginner's Guide to Animating Custom GIFs.

I can't wait to see what you create!

Jake is a fantastic teacher. I highly recommend anyone to take his classes. Not only does he explain how to do certain things but he also explains other ways of doing them, the pros and cons and allows the learners to decide which is best for them. He must know the best cookies don't come from cookie cutters. :)
Great tutorial and very versatile technique! I've already used it on several projects. Thank you!
Incredible classes
