Lettering for Designers with Jessica Hische


Join illustrator and letterer Jessica Hische in her in-depth class, Lettering for Designers!

user-image-medium“In this self-paced class, I’ll teach you my process, starting with that crucial unit: a simple and beautiful single letter in the form of a drop cap. A drop cap is the large letter that starts a chapter in a book, an artform found in manuscripts dating back 2,000 years.”

What You’ll Learn

Jessica will teach you her lettering process along with plenty of the tips and tricks she has acquired over the years. She’ll cover:

  • Research. The importance of starting small and picking the right book.
  • Brainstorming. The keys to letting ideas out of your head and onto paper.
  • Sketching. The real-world process for how letters are designed. I’ll share my sketch books and sketching process for a true behind-the-scenes walkthrough.
  • Digitizing. My essential tips and tricks for Illustrator, including how to use handlebars and where to place your vector points.
  • Critiquing. The constructive, core process for critiquing your own work and getting those perfect finishing touches (ahem, perfect curves).
