Lettering and modern calligraphy

Basics and tips in lettering and modern calligraphy!

Exploring the art of creating beautiful lettering is both fun and challenging. As a passionate lettering enthusiast myself, I want to share some of my best tips and tricks to improve your lettering work. Whether you're a beginner or have a few years of experience, I hope you find these tips useful in taking your lettering to the next level.

Prepare Your Workspace:

Having an organized and inspiring workspace is critical to fostering creativity and productivity. Make sure to keep all your lettering materials and tools within easy reach and keep your workspace clean and free of distractions.

Practice Basic Techniques:

Before venturing into more advanced lettering styles, it's important to master the basic techniques. Practice writing upside down, push and pull, and work with different pen tips to get a feel for how the letters form.

Find Your Unique Style:

Developing a personal lettering style is a slow process that requires patience and practice. Take the time to experiment with different styles, shapes and expressions to find what suits you best. Don't be afraid to let your personality shine through in your work!

Study Other Lettering Artists:

Studying and drawing inspiration from other lettering artists is a great way to learn new techniques and develop your own style. Browse social media platforms like Instagram and Pinterest to find exciting examples of lettering work, and feel free to follow your favorite artists to keep up to date with their latest work.

Be patient and have fun :

Getting good at lettering takes time and patience, so don't be too hard on yourself if you don't achieve perfection right away. See every failure as an opportunity to learn and grow, and remember that the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the process!

I hope these tips will be of use to you on your lettering journey. Remember that practice makes perfect, so keep experimenting and exploring new techniques.

Tips for you if you live in the Stockholm area!
