About the workshop:

General Session

Everything you ever wanted to know about what goes into executing a custom hand-lettering piece from start to finish.

We’ll look at how and where to find the best resources for study, research, and reference, how to get started with sketching initial concepts, and quickly iterating through ideas to get where you’re trying to go a little faster.

We’ll work through the best ways to move forward, once you’ve found that perfect style and layout, and are ready to clean it up and execute final, digital artwork.

Finally, we’ll have a fun and exciting discussion, answering your biggest questions, sharing and giving feedback on the work we’ve created, and more.

Capital Session

For those wanting to go a little further, stay a little longer. In this┬ámore intimate, small-group setting, we’ll dive deeper in to some finer, more specific techniques, explore other lettering styles, and their defining principles, and for everyone that can bring a laptop with Illustrator installed, we’ll even dig further into the best practices and preferred methods of specifically drawing letters in vector.
