Objective: We could all use a little extra inspiration/motivation right now, so for this month’s Prompt you’ll be creating your own hand-lettered inspirational message or word(s) that are inspiring to you. Explore different styles and applications to create interesting compositions that you can share on social or apply to products.
Suggested Size: Any size or proportion will work, think of how/where you’d like to use your final graphic to help determine this.
Suggested Program: Photoshop, Illustrator, Affinity Designer
iPad app suggestions: Procreate, Adobe Fresco/Photoshop, Affinity Designer/Photo, Paper by WeTransfer
Goal Date: May 31st
PD Notes & Suggestions: These can be strictly created using pen and paper, or you can take a photo to manipulate your lettering or use it as a guide to digitize and further explore from there. Your sketches can also just be a starting off point before getting started digitally. Another great option is using a tablet with a pen, like that of the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, or a drawing tablet for your computer like a Wacom. These will give you that hand-drawn effect with more control rather than using your mouse with the added benefit that you’re working in digital and can scale as needed… without the waste of paper 🙂
Remember to play and have fun while creating these!!!! Our hope is that you will develop new skills and passions while working on these prompts.
We encourage you to post your work-in-progress as well as your final pieces to get helpful feedback from the PD community (#PDcrit). Also, be sure to tag us @prompteddesign and use #Prompt005 to give you a chance to be featured on our page.
