Adam shares techniques to help you refine your sketch and achieve a clean tracing of your final design. Find out how to transfer your design to paper and get tips on making adjustments to your letterforms.
Adam walks you through inking your design, then shares various options for enhancing it, both around and inside the text.
Get started on your second project: a design that involves drawing multiple words. Adam takes you through the design considerations, and shows you how to create a composition that works with the meaning of the phrase.
Once you're comfortable combining multiple words, focus on combining type styles. Adam shares a few different approaches to help you think of your words as shapes and create a design that's interesting, yet cohesive.
End class by tracing, transferring and inking your final design. Take a look at a variety of different surfaces to which you can transfer your design and complete it, including a wall!
