About this course

In this popular class, lettering artist and designer Ricardo Gonzalez teaches you the tricks of lettering his iconic monoline wordmarks, mixing digital and physical techniques to create depth and detail!

While traditional calligraphy has strokes of varying weights ("thicks and "thins"), monoline lettering has a uniform thickness throughout the pen stroke. Using a rounded-tip pen or graffiti marker instead of a chiseled nib creates a distinctive, graphic look that lettering artists are sure to love adding to their artistic arsenal.

In this 70-minute class, you'll walk through Ricardo's creative lettering process, including:

  • warm-up exercises
  • sketching
  • inking
  • photographing and Photoshopping the finished lettered piece

Every lesson is a true behind-the-scenes into the work featured on his popular Instagram account, @itsaliving!

Perfect for designers, illustrators, and type enthusiasts alike, you don't need any prior knowledge in calligraphy or lettering to get started. Beginners welcome! By the end of the lessons, you’ll be able to create and share a monoline wordmark of your own.
