Lessons in this class:
Chapter 1. Basic exercses
We will begin with a tools review (brush pens and markers) and choose the tools we need to start. We also cover all the basic exercises you'll need as a foundation for your future work.
Chapter 2. Lowercase letters

We will learn how to write each letter in two different ways. At first, we will learn the most common mistakes and how to avoid those in your lettering. The base for our first lessons will be the copperplate font. This will help you to understand the logic of brush pen writing.
Chapter 3. Uppercase letters
It's not enough to know how to write lowercase letters only, so we'll tackle capital lettering as well. We will analyze all the aspects of capital letters including how to change the forms, important rules, and main point you should be aware of.
Chapter 4. Ligatures and flourishes
At first, we learn what is ligature is, why do we need it, and the history of it. We will write a few basic ligatures and cover their rules and constructions.

This is the most important part of lettering logo design. If you know the mechanics of ligature creation you can easily make your letters unique. Also, you will learn how to work with the flourishes and how to use them in you own work.
Chapter 5. Composition
On this step we will learn the basics of composition and how to use them in lettering design. You will learn the structure of composition, the rhythmic, negative space, and weight of the letters.

Doing this will help you apply consistency and harmony in your own work. You will know how to write any words you want in any size and proportions. Also, you will learn how to create a lot of different options for one word.
Chapter 6. Sketching process
In this part we will transform our lettering to the final composition. We will add individual features to our letters and also learn how to change different elements to find unusual solutions.
Chapter 7. Fx (Effects)
In this chapter we will learn different tricks to make our artworks more interesting. We will cover how to mix colors to create a gradient effect and learn the basics of lighting, shadows, and glare. And will also cover how to use watercolor in our lettering.
Chapter 8. How to transfer the mood
Here we will learn how to transfer our emotions into our lettering. I'll show and explain different techniques and tricks which will help you to get a right vibe for your lettering.
