Digitise Your Lettering Workshop – Thursday 20th April
When: Thursday 20th April @ 6:30pm – 8:45pm.
Where: West Elm, 209 Tottenham Court Road, London, W1T 7PN.
You may be a budding typographer or attended one of our lettering workshops already. If you’ve been left wanting to take your skills to the next level and move forward into new applications with your skills then there’s no better way than learning how to digitise your hand lettering.
Teri will take you through the basics using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, starting from scanning or photographing your work to creating a print or web ready digital piece. You’ll learn how to create letter layers, colour overlays, how to tidy up and reformat your letters, how to fill letter shapes with pattern or texture, place text over photographs or pair with fonts, as well as how to create vector shapes that can be easily enlarged with no loss of quality. You’ll learn how to work to retain a hand finished look and in contrast, how to work to a flat graphic look.
By the end of the session we want you to go away confident to apply your new found skills to your love of lettering, giving you so many possibilities for application, whether that be web headers, logos, wedding stationery, greetings cards, laser cuts or signage.
The class has a limit of 10 people to make sure that Teri can come round and help any one who get’s stuck. Each person will receive detailed guide sheets to help them on the night and take away with them for reference afterwards.
In order to do the class you will need to have with you:
A charged laptop with Photoshop and Illustrator or Creative Cloud. You can often download trial versions of these if you don’t yet have them.
An image scanned or photographed of your lettering at 260 dpi resolution or above, along with any textures you’d like to play with on the night.
