This course was updated in June 2020 with new material adapted to Procreate 5’s latest updates in layout and animation tools such as color, cloning, and brushes.

Calligraphy and digital lettering compositions in travel photography have become more and more ubiquitous on Instagram, something to which designer and lyricist Nubia Navarro— more commonly known as Nubikini—dedicates her time and effort, having worked for brands such as Marriott, Adidas, Samsung, Coca-Cola, and UNICEF.

In this course, Nubikini teaches you how to combine photographs with lettering on Procreate to create Instagram-worthy pieces.

Meet Nubikini, who tells you her journey through the world of lettering, how she started, her passion for photography, and shows you her greatest influences.

Choose photos and phrases to develop the course project which is five compositions destined for social media, about nature, gastronomy, people, an object, and a sunset.

Nubikini talks to you about the personality of letters, their ability to convey fresh and powerful messages, and the value of experimentation to master various styles and generate contrast between them.

Learn the ideal characteristics that your file should have in order to be published on social networks, then see how to achieve an optimal workflow in Procreate.

Learn the basics of the world of letters and you perform different exercises with italic monoline style and Brush Script, with sans serif and serif letters, with light and shadow, all on a photograph.

Apply everything you learn to create your composition. Choose two or three styles of letters to learn how to combine them without saturating the pictures.

Finally, see how you can export your image and a video of your Procreate pieces. In addition, Nubikini gives you some tips and advice for publishing them on social networks.

Combine a travel photograph with lettering or calligraphy to create a composition and share it on Instagram.
