Discover how to design letters in different styles on your iPad

A course by Daniel Hosoya

You don't need to have good handwriting to create beautiful digital lettering. The key is simply to draw and experiment, something that Daniel Hosoya—advertising designer specializing in letter creation—wholly enjoys every time he lands a commission that turns into a work of art.

In Digital Lettering with Illustrator and Photoshop, he taught you to create compositions combining different styles of letters. In this second course, faithful to the digital drawing of letters, he invites you to venture a step further and create letters with Procreate, the drawing app designed exclusively for iPad. Discover the basic workings of the application, create brushes to obtain your own customized strokes, and give the entire process a go to create a lettering piece based on the name of your favorite song.
