There are no strict rules when it comes to lettering – simply do what you like! You could use different writing styles, for instance, whether cursive or block capitals, narrow or broad letters. Try experimenting with different techniques.
A serious writing style can provide a playful contrast to a cheeky slogan. Varying the spacing between letters can also offer interesting design options.
You can add an artistic flair using shading and decorative elements like frames, banners, arrows or stars.
Once you’ve finished the different elements of your artwork, play around with them until you find the combination and layout that you like best.
Each step is explained in more detail in our video. Have fun watching!
