Learn how to transform your hand lettering from analog to digital in this full day lettering workshop with self-taught type fanatic Lachlan Philp.

Lachlan’s letter journey began with a simple cheap brush pen and has escalated to boxes filled with various pens, markers and brushes in a constant need to experiment and further his lettering skills. It was not long before his hand type was needed in the digital space – with that came a whole new challenge of how to translate beautiful curves and letterforms successfully into a digital piece.

In the first half of this 1 day intensive workshop budding letterers will go through the basics of lettering with various pens and markers using techniques that you will take home to practice your lettering further.

The second half of the day we will move into the digital arena where we will look at some of the best tips and techniques to turn your piece into a super smooth piece of digital lettering.


Lachlan works as a freelance designer that focuses on brand development and lettering. Lachlan loves working most on anything type related from bespoke word-marks for branding identities to illustrative lettering and murals. He also loves burgers, coffee and sneakers.

An excellent day! I really enjoyed the process of taking my hand made lettering into a digital work. Lachlan was very knowledgable in the skill and was very accomodating to my left-handedness
