Hi there everyone! We hope that you all are well and that our blogs are keeping you busy with your personal and commercial projects as well. Earlier this week, when we were working on the list of content that needed to develop for you guys, we wanted to include something related to the art of lettering and here we are with our very unique and super interesting blog that features the works of a lettering artist & illustrator Anna Banani. In this blog, we are going to be sharing everything that you must know about lettering so, let us get started right away!
Keeping in mind the diverse audiences that we have here, we would like to start with the basics first; lettering is the art of drawing letters using different techniques, mediums, etc. instead of simply writing them and the outcome is so beautiful that you might never want to stop drawing your letters for your personal and commercial communication. In fact, we think that instead of going with simple styles of writing copy, etc. for ads (on-ground, digital and social media), we must consider other arts as well in order to get in touch with our audiences in many, many different ways, you know.
Lettering might seem something very difficult at first, but trust us when we say this: when you will get the hang of it and will also know how to treat your alphabets and phrases, etc., you will be able to create them easily – without feeling that it is something that you cannot do. The key to getting started is to first know what your medium is. For example; some people are really good at lettering when they draw the letters using a pencil and a paper and we feel that it also gives you more control over your tools as well whereas; other people find creating lettering art digitally easier.
We feel that it is very important for everyone who is reading the blog to first know their mediums and you can only do that through the trial process. Also, know that you don’t have to get your hands on every lettering product that exists under the sun and see which one can help you with creating your art – the entire process can get overwhelming, sure, so start small, baby steps and once you have tried a thing or two, you will know where to spend your money and energy on.
It is time for us to introduce you to the artist Anna Banani who lives in the United Kingdom and script lettering is her passion. She offers her services both as a permanent employee as well as a freelancer and we would definitely suggest you explore what she has created in the past not just as a learner who wants to acquire a new skill but also as a prospective employer as well for your future projects because guys, we will be honest, whatever she has created is so appealing that you might want to spend a couple of hours just looking at her creations.
Anna says that she loves cursive letterforms and the fact that they have so much variety makes her very happy because obviously when you have so many options to choose from, you also improvise and create something on your own too and we would like to believe that all the creative artists that are there do that from time to time in order to work and produce designs, etc. that no one has created before and we think that helps them stay motivated all the time. And that is one of the reasons why we end up seeing amazing things every other day on the internet, on the roads and everywhere else too and we hope that artists never get tired of doing that because creating art is one of those things that can make this world a little happier every other day.
We would like to mention here that never limit yourself from trying out something new, never restrict yourself to one medium or even a single technique for that matter; check out what Anna has been creating utilizing visuals and ornamenting them with her beautiful script lettering and you will know what we mean. This will not only give you a chance to explore your inner self but we can bet that you will be proud of yourself for always looking for more and more things to incorporate into your art.
That is all for today, you guys! We hope that you not only had a great time reading the blog but will also share it with your favorite colleagues and friends interested in learning something new this year. Feel free to share your feedback with us in the comments section as well and if you have any special requests, then send them our way and we will definitely get back with your requested content and more stuff in our upcoming blogs super soon.
