Industrial Lettering Tutorial
We love BIG letters !
Hi Happy Journalers !
We love to use big letters as central element on our journal pages. One of my favorite style is the INDUSTRIAL DESIGN lettering.
Industrial Style letters are easy to create, they do not need to be precise and they add a “technical design” shade to your page!
Here is a step by step tutorial on how to create them.
Step 1 - Shape your letters
Outline letters on your page.
The idea is really just to define:
the position of your letters
size of your word.
Do not worry about details such as having straight lines.
Important note: Leave some spaces in between letters so that we can add volume to them in the next step.
Step 2 - Create some volume
With a RULER, trace the letters ON TOP of the ones you sketched in step 1.
Details to mind for are:
All letters should have the same height
Make all lines “double” so that letters can be filled in next step
Step 3 - Fill your letters
Fill the letters with small parallel lines. Do not worry about:
regularity of the lines
living some spaces between the letter edges and the lines
Step 4 - Add black area
Add some black marks in your letters in an irregular manner.
Use those black area to:
fill in spaces between your small lines and the letter themselves
cover area where lines are too irregulars or that you do not like
Step 5 - Add Construction lines
With a ruler, add some vertical and horizontal “construction” lines on each letter :
horizontal and vertical lines on the edge of your letters
make some of the lines cross each other
This is the step that will give the "industrial" look.
Et voilà !
