Hand Lettering Challenges for Designers

hand lettering challenges

All designers need a little inspiration now and then.

I was coming off of a draining advertising art-director role, feeling burnt out and desperate to revive my passion for the craft of design.

Intrigued by the hot hand-lettering trend, and having always harbored a love of sketching and typography, I set about creating mini hand-lettering challenges for myself—to take my design skills to the next level.

I won’t lie—it took time and persistence to learn these skills.

But in just a few years I’ve built a large reference library and growing portfolio of work, improved my ability to sketch multiple styles quickly, gained confidence in my lettering and illustration abilities, and pushed my conceptual thinking and writing skills.

And whether you’re new to hand-lettering or a seasoned pro, you can benefit from these challenges, too.

Give them a try!
