About This Class


In this class I'll teach you how to add imperfections to your typography, giving your fonts a more hand drawn feel. I’ll show you three different styles that will round out corners, roughen edges and add some variation to each letter. Once it’s built you can easily apply it to other projects in the future. And best of all it’s all done right inside of photoshop, no other resources needed.

The class is super simple and easy to follow along even if you’re new to photoshop. And if you do need any help along the way, I’m hear to answer and questions.
