Have you ever seen a piece of lettering and one or more of the letters just really speak to you?!? If so, wouldn’t you love to put your own twist on that style but you’re not sure where to start?
Well… read on for handy tips and some free tools we created just for you!
Looking at that lettering piece as a reference (friendly reminder to not copy, it should only serve as inspiration). Start to determine what unique characteristics you would like to bring into your own “font”. You could sketch these ideas out or write down some notes. From there you can use our Hand-Lettering Alphabet Grid to create a whole alphabet, or font, using the style you’ve outlined. You can later reference your completed sheet and any other styles that you create when working on your future lettering. This is handy so that you don’t have to rethink what each letter in that style should look like every time… you’ll have your own lettering font library to reference 🙂
If you feel like going the extra mile, we’ve also created a Hand-Lettering Numbers and Symbols Grid for your use. Both of these Grids can be found at the same link, and because we are feeling generous, we’ve included PDF, PNG and Procreate File versions for each (woo-hoo!).
