About This Class

Handlettering is a lot of fun but there is only so much we can do when things are done by hand, I'm sure a patterned handlettering piece can be done by hand-only too but it takes special skils (AND TIME). This trend we have seen everywhere in social media lately is not a new creation, it has just recently been given a little kick (well huge kick) by a well known designer on instagram and everybody wants to try it now, I can't blame them IT'S A LOT OF FUN.

Several designers have done this tecnique before either similar or exactly the same, when I saw how popular this had become and how confused a lot of people were I thought maybe a quick class could help. So here it is! You will be guided step by step through three different methods you can apply in different scenarios using photoshop, all of them are very easy and fast. This project won't take longer than 20 minutes to complete and you can try different patterns and textures, your creativity will set the limit. Even if following trends isn't your favorite thing, I can assure you: you will enjoy doing this project.
