Athens postcards (5 styles)

Athens postcards (5 styles) - student project

Wednesday February 10th

Hello there, I am a graphic designer from Greece, learning and experimenting with new lettering techniques.

I completed Mary Kate McDevitt's 2 lettering courses. I loved watching Martina's class and I particularly liked her project Letter Collections

My project is a series of postcards for Athens (my city) in 5 different lettering styles written in greek. 

I will show my creative process: inpirations and mood board, pencil sketches, tracing and inking, adding color and color combination alternatives, texture and 3d dimension effect.

Inspirations / Moodboards:

Pencil sketches for all:

Victorian style:

Lettering before texture

Lettering after the texture effects

Script monoline:

Lettering after the texture effects

Script:

Vintage style long letters:

3D detail

50's Vegas style:

All together! Not sure if they would work together as a set, though. I think they work better each on their own...

Thank you for viewing. Your feedback would be welcomed!!!
