Start by getting to know Nubikini, who tells you about her journey through the wonderful world of letters, how she got into lettering, and her passion for photography. Then she shows you some of her greatest influences.

Next, choose a set of photos and phrases for the final project, which entails creating five compositions for social media with the following themes: nature, gastronomy, people, an object, and a sunset.

Nubikini talks you through the personality of letters, their ability to convey fresh and powerful messages, and the value of experimentation in order to master different styles and create contrast between them.

Get to know the ideal characteristics that your file should have to publish it on social media, then discover how to achieve an optimal workflow in Procreate.

Learn the basics of lettering and work through different exercises using cursive monoline style and Brush Script, sans serif and serif letters, and light and shadow effects, all superimposed on a photograph.

Now it’s time to apply everything you've learned to create your composition. Choose two or three styles of letters to learn how to combine them without saturating the photos.

To wrap things up, Nubikini shows you how to export the image and video of your Procreate pieces. She also gives you some great tips and advice for sharing them on social media.
