A course by Aurelie Maron

For lettering artist and graphic designer Aurelie Maron, it’s an essential tool for creating vibrant artwork that has seen her work with clients such as Uber, Cincinnati Magazine, and The Vegilantes.

In this online course, Aurelie teaches you how to draw your own words and give them dimension through special effects in Procreate. Explore her step-by-step process for creating realistic, retro-inspired lettering with a 3D chrome effect and take your lettering practice to the next level!
