This week, we have teamed up with the lovely and talented @IanBarnard on one of our favorite challenges. Ian is a professional lettering artist and instructor based in the UK. And he is giving away three $50 vouchers for his online store which is packed full of resources to help you become a better letterer—with grids, templates, Procreate brushes and more!
Words below from Ian:
The reason I first started to post to Instagram was to catalogue my progress as I began my journey into calligraphy and lettering. At the beginning it's hard to notice the gradual improvements that you are making, so having a way of looking back will encourage you that you are getting better and your skill set is developing. This will also give hope to those who see your work, showing that none of us start off doing perfect lettering and that through consistent practice we grow and develop our abilities. •
Your challenge this week is to rework one of your first pieces of lettering, whether that was 3 weeks or 3 years ago, and post a before and after. •
Tag your entry @Goodtype and @IanBarnard and hashtag it #GoodtypeTuesday and #GoodtypeFirstPost and don't forget to have fun!
Post your entry by Midnight, US PST Wed. May 22nd. We will announce the winners on Friday, May 24th!
Swipe to see some of Ian’s first posts and re-worked first posts! •
As always, we will repost some of our favorites. Remember, this is all for the encouragement and practice of lettering. Only positive comments and constructive feedback welcome. Multiple entries welcome. All skill levels welcome. Please only enter YOUR work. Entering your work does not make it ours. We give credit where credit is due. Above all, HAVE FUN!
This is a 24 hour activity that happens once a week! Join the Goodtype Newsletter to get a head start on the weekly #GoodtypeTuesday prompt.
