Join San Francisco based typographer, letterer and illustrator Annica Lydenberg (aka Dirty Bandits) for a fun-filled 3 hours of lettering! Using just a pencil and a single font for reference we’ll develop over 20 different styles you can start to play with to make your lettering all your own and totally unique.
We will all start with a large print out of the full alphabet in Helvetica then with different prompts and examples redraw and decorate each letter in a new style to give it tons of personality.
This is a super fun intro class to help break down any barriers or fears and give you a solid foundation of references and styles to pull from when beginning hand lettering projects of your own. You need only a pencil and paper and a font for reference.
