You will discover the way in which Panco Sassano develops its letterings for large-scale projects from the arrival of the briefing to the final brushstroke.

First, it will teach you how to create a neat and orderly planning model to carry out a small or large-scale lettering in a methodical and structured manner, managing and scheduling the meetings and deliveries with the client until the moment of presenting the final art.

You will know in depth the work flow, research and analysis of the concrete case, the sketching and assembly of an original, as well as the digitization and adjustments of the lettering.

Once the design is finished, you will move it to the wall. It will be then when Panco will reveal some tips and secrets that will make it easier for you to paint on a large surface.

What is this course's project?

You will develop a large-scale lettering project based on your own design and you will scale and paint it manually to get a large poster.
