About This Class

12564b9e

Why should lettering, one of the most versatile and exciting forms of communication, be restricted to a sheet of paper? Explore the possibilities of composition and creativity by lettering on surfaces and objects. Joseph Alessio teaches the techniques and tricks that go into crafting quality lettering, going over the basics and some of the lesser known principles behind letterforms, and then walks through his process in creating his popular TypeLimited violin pieces, guiding you in creating your own piece of typographic art. Get your hands dirty and take your love of letterforms to a new level!

This class has a lot of useful tips and information and makes me want to try some new things
Very cool class! He does a very good job of explaining how lettering works before you puts it on a product.

Joseph Alessio

Typographic Illustrator / Image Maker / Animator

Hi! I'm Joseph. I'm obsessed with words and letters, combining language with fresh media, concepts and sometimes motion, to create a unique form of communication. I'm a typographic illustrator and content creator, from Detroit, now in Denver. I also play 7 musical instruments, and sometimes I forget what they all are.
