Handlettering for total beginners 

If you always wanted to start with hand lettering, and create great designs for your projects but you didn’t found the flow right away, if you want to jump into the next level of hand lettering skills or if you just want to learn a productive workflow for your design projects, this class is for you!

Tanja has spent many years teaching total beginners. In serveral offline classes, she gained experience with the needs of creatives, who love creating and illustrating but who don’t know where to start. This class, gives you a professional workflow to improve your work and a lot of motivation to go on practising. You learn to reflect, control and adjust your work in a highly understandable way.

In this class you’ll learn:

  • a productive and fun sketching workflow
  • the basics of typography
  • a technique to design letterings in faux calligraphy
  • to stay openminded for all your ideas
  • to avoid frustration
  • the (open) secrets of a good and balanced lettering design
  • techniques you can apply to any drawing project

You will be creating a finished design, that you may work out with any of your favourite media, the process is your project.

Even if you have some experience in hand lettering, you will find some new tricks and tips that could approve your workflow. 

Get your extra boost of motivation! 

You will learn

Your class project is a finished hand lettering design. Just one word to keep it simple. You will learn to enjoy the sketching process and to trust your instincts and ideas to create a great design.

Materials and resources:

  • pencil and eraser
  • simple copy paper
  • tracing paper (I am using white sandwich paper, because it is cheap and that allows me to mess things up – a lot – and to work without pressure)
  • fancy paper to work out your lettering – I am using a cold pressed watercolor paper with fine grain
