About This Class

Learn the step-by-step process that goes into creating a typographic composition from Jason and Dennis—two designers at Friends of Type, the beloved lettering and type sketchblog. It’s a fun, visual, 20-minute class showing off the record covers, skate stickers, layouts, and effects they love. With individual lessons on mind-mapping, mood boards, sketching letterforms, and digitizing your final piece, you'll learn everything you need to choose a favorite pop culture phrase and style it into a Friends of Type post.

Jason and Dennis will personally review the 10 most-liked class projects and feature 3 favorites on the blog.
