FROM SKETCH TO SIGNAGE
Have you ever wondered how signs and murals are initially generated? They start from blank drawing board; be it on a sheet of paper or on a digital screen, the ideas for type forms and type locks all start as sketches.
After numerous tweaks and refining, the final design is then selected to create the stencil that enables the transferring of the graphic onto your chosen surface, at the scale required; from small scale signs to large scale murals.
This is probably the most challenging phase of the design journey but one that allows you to experiment and play to create endless typographic possibilities. And once you have it nailed, then the fun part of painting begins!
If you'd like to learn this creative process, i'm looking to run a one day intense crash course that would enable you to learn the basic skills of lettering, transforming it from sketch to signage. I will post those listings as soon as i've worked out new dates for the autumn months, so do keep your eyes peeled for it!
