02/05 Sketching — Lettering: Create Great Designs out of a Sketch_ENG


So after doing some inspiration and finding and looking at some cool examples, I jumped to my paper just had normal kinds of paper and just a normal pencil and I did some sketches. I started throwing out some of the words. I came up with Humble Brew Code. I did some coffee icons as well. Maybe I could use that later on, and so it’s good to just play around and experiment. And then see what type of letters you can do because it was a vintage type of style, I tried to you know, mix it up and add some flourishes add some cool spikes and embellishment on the type, so that’s what my goal was. And I took my time. I did different layouts, I did different logo lockups of how the typography was going to be laid out. And the best thing to do is, you know, use your rule and just draw out some lines, it can be slanted curved, warped, anything you want. As you can see, I keep going in, just play around with different styles. You can see I’m using shapes and lines to you know, set a guide for where my type would going to be. But my type was humble, which I use and you can see throughout the rest of the video of just some examples that I did throughout that you know drawing session. And you can see me just draw out cool stuff and yeah. So this is what you do, do sketches and it’ll really help out your logo designs and type look better. The more time you spend with this, will look a lot a lot better. So after I did these sketches, you can see later on that I blew it up, so I made it a bit bigger. I chose the one style, and then I made it bigger and then from that, I scan it in and I bring it into Illustrator that’s where we start building our type, which is in the next video. So yeah, I hope you enjoyed this you know, some of the sketches. And you can learn from it. And go ahead and do your own sketches now, trying to do like 10 different versions and figure out what you you know, want to do or you can just follow along in you know, later on of what I’m doing.
