A day spent learning FreeStyle Roundhand is a unique experience, and you won't find greater attention paid to the detail of your lettering education.
This masterclass is probably one of my personal favorites because of my love for script lettering and its ability to communicate a wide variety of messages. In this masterclass, you’re going to learn the basics of informal (also known as casual) script lettering. By the end, you will have a grasp of stroke weights, contrast, kerning, flourishing, speed, angle, and other techniques that are used to develop FreeStyle Roundhand.
It will ackle the freestyle Roundhand and then move forward into flourishing. We'll cover the basics to begin, and then we’ll add on the embellishments and other bells and whistles so that your typography stands out from the rest and appears more “custom”. After all, that is what “lettering” is all about: custom and unique hand-drawn typography!
What's the FreeStyle Roundhand?
What exactly defines "FreeStyle Roundhand"? The script, Cursive, Calligraphy, and other terms are all used interchangeably. Script essentially refers to letterforms that are joined together by a single movement of the hand. But, in this case, since we're drawing, it will be the buildup of pencil strokes. It will consist of many, many flourishes that will be made to develop and refine the letterforms... rather than completing the letterforms in one movement as you would with Lettering.
It is much more flexible. It has some roots within the formal scripts, such as letterform construction, but it has the ability to be completely unique from its origin. The overall speed, composition, color, size, and other factors vary with the informal script. Altering the width, angle, size, contrast and other characteristics of a letterform can create unique informal script letterforms.
Price includes the material to ensure your learning and achieving the skills require for Roundhand. A right gear will make the process easy and achievable.
