However, in our today’s blog we are going to be talking about lettering and typography but in addition to that we will also introduce you guys to Jonathan Ortiz and his eye candy lettering / typography so let’s get started!
If you are one of our regular readers then you would know that we have done a bunch of blogs on lettering and typography and how you can learn to do it on your own to bring out newness in your art works and other design related assignments. But we also know that the number of our followers and readers keep on increasing daily and it’d be only wise to reshare what lettering is before we start talking about it using technical words and terms.
Lettering is a term that is used to cover the art of drawing letters, you do not write letters like you would in regular styles but you literally draw them in a way that they become a piece of art. Interestingly, lettering makes each alphabet of any word so attractive that one cannot resist but praise the beauty of it. Each letter of every word, phrase, quote etc. acts as an illustration when it is drawn, and the most intriguing part is when it depicts the attention to detail while also playing a unique role in the entire composition.
Typography, on the other hand is the art & technique of arranging the type in a way that the written language (words, phrases) become readable, legible and more importantly appealing when put together on a poster, billboard, greeting card and on literally anything for that matter. If you are wondering what is meant by arranging the type then we would love to share it with you guys that it means to select typefaces, point sizes and line lengths and also adjusting line spacing, letter spacing as well as the space between the pair of letters.
There are chances that those of you are planning how to learn lettering and typography must be thinking that the above mentioned information sounds a little too hard and maybe you can skip learning a new skill for now but know that, the first step to learn something new is to accept the fact that it might be difficult and that you might fail even after several attempts but you need not to stop – be patient and keep trying until you get there where you want to see yourself and everything will fall into place.

To learn how to start lettering and using typography and enhance the beauty of your designs, your first step is to understand the terms and then the requirements. We meet people who often say things like the right tools do not matter and there is no need to spend on something that you do not even know about. We respectfully disagree and inform them that having the right tools in super important as without them, you won’t be able to even begin the process.
