A special workshop facilitated by lettering master Heather Martinez. As visual practitioners, we spend a lot of time writing in real time during meetings. Likely you rely on your handwriting for rapid capture. Is your writing legible? stylistic? Do you feel confident when writing live in front of others?
In this class you will learn foundational letterforms, hierarchy, and emphasis, as well as how you can make the letterforms your own and differentiate your style from other practitioners'.This is not a traditional “hand lettering” class; it is about increasing your speed, creativity and confidence when charting for clients. You will build confidence and up your lettering game while cultivating your unique style through a series of exercises. Day One is about letterforms and tools; Day Two is about the practical application of lettering in your work as a visual practitioner.
• You are a visual practitioner or anyone capturing live during meetings (facilitators, trainers, and those white boarding or flip charting).
• You understand the value of legibility and have to perform at speed.
• You wield a marker and want to feel confident as you do.
Heather Martinez is a visual practitioner, lettering artist, and the founding art director of the Visioneering team (a team of visual practitioners) in Chantilly, VA. She studies lettering with master calligraphers, sign painters, and graffiti artists, translating the lettering styles she learns into ones that can be used by visual practitioners.
