Lettering – brilliant links to resources for beginners (updated*)

Lettering, whether digitally on Procreate/other programs or the traditional ‘on paper’ form, is so popular now. If you want to learn more, and get some inspiration and resources, then here is a list for you. I would suggest that you subscribe to their newsletters, grab the freebies, watch some tutorials and go to Instagram/Pinterest for inspiration.


Digital Lettering

Liz Kohler Brown – is listed in my blog post for Illustrating Beginners – but deserves to be here too! One of my favourite Skillshare teachers. She has now published her iPad Lettering Book – see below.


Karin @ ipadlettering.com – A fantastic resources, with tutorials, lots of freebies and wonderful Procreate brushes.

Teela @ every-tuesday.com – Possibly my favourite teacher, and her Tuesday Tribe newsletter is a highlight of my digital week. Subscribe to get 50 design & lettering files. Her YouTube channel is a brilliant source of education and inspiration (for lettering and illustration).


Jillian & Jordan @ Loveleigh Loops.com – Another fantastic resource. So many freebies, blog posts and inspiration/encouragement. I will be taking one of their paid courses later this year.


Max @ lettering-daily.com – This is more for hand lettering and calligraphy (which he explains the difference between), but there are also Procreate brushes. His freebies include a 30 day Hand Lettering Planner.


Ian Barnard is a Hand Lettering Artist, who is also a fantastic tutor on Procreate. He has a Skillshare class and often does live lessons on social media. Definitely worth following on Instagram and YouTube. If you want to buy his well known Letter & Grid Builder Bundle to use on Procreate, this is the cheapest price at the moment.


Stefan Kunz – the King of Instagram, YouTube and his website is a joy. You need to watch one of his live sessions. Known for his lettering and typography.


Hand Lettering

Lisa Funk @ handlettereddesign.com – Loads of freebies for total beginners.


Sarah Ensign @ ensigninsights.com – Great resources including Skillshare courses (click on the link to get 2 free months).


Here is another brilliant website for hand lettering. Sign up for her free mini course HERE.


Creativebug has a good selection of lettering-specific classes.


I could go on for a lot longer and if you need help finding resources or inspiration, then just email me at hello@aliwade.com.

I would love to see your lettering efforts. Tag me on Instagram @aliwadedesigns.
