Discover the value of hand-drawn letters and flourishes

During the years that Martina Flor–designer and lyricist–has dedicated to creating lettering for brands from all over the world and large publishing houses, she has been able to perfect her technique to stylize all kinds of letters. Thanks to lettering, he achieves that, in addition to meaning, the letters also communicate through their style. Cursive lettering is one of the most expressive styles and one of the most effective ways to create a unique logo with personality; its shapes give it a very special character and give it the value of authenticity that refers directly to the writing of your handwriting.

Martina, who introduced you to the world of lettering in the courses The Golden Secrets of Lettering and Lettering for Perfectionists, is back to explain step by step how to design a logo and personal brand based on your own calligraphy.
