Lettering – Or Numbering!

I’ve spent lots of time over the Christmas break reading some fantastic lettering books. So much so, that I think you’ll see a lot more of this over the next 12 months. Here’s a little video showing how I went from initial sketch to final design.

After messing around for a while with my pencil, I finally came up with the four numbers , three words and a couple of flourishes.

From there, I set up my illustrator file with several layers so that everything was editable very easily.

Feel free to ask any questions regarding the process, I’d be happy to answer your questions.

If you want to know which books I have read, pop over to Instagram where I list them all out for you – the photo might still be in the sidebar (to the right of this post).
