I've been working hard at improving my lettering recently and know plenty of others are working on it as well. Bandjob has a very inspiring thread showcasing peoples work so let's get one started over here as well. Post your stuff here if you are looking to promote your lettering skills, looking to improve them by getting critiqued or just here to soak up any tips to help push you further.

Let's see them

    Shorten the length of the top of the t?
  • Sol Amstutz

    Looking good Pitch. I definitely need to work on my lettering skills. It's easily my weakest point.
  • Joshua Jordan

    Posted this a bunch already, but what the heck.

  • Setup85

    Really like the first one Pitch.

    Thanks Sol
    Thanks Setup

    Always dug this one. Are there any actual products of this out yet?
  • Kyle Crawford

    the spacing is off, the y needs to move over a tad

    Thanks Pitch! I remember a LOOOONG time ago you saying that you needed to work on your type. You're type has just been getting better and better.

    And yeah, you can check out their site: http://thebrewersmarket.com/store/
    They also have an etsy store for anyone more comfortable going that direction: http://www.etsy.com/shop/thebrewersmarket

    All this type looks so sweet!

    Pitch i love that bad city logo but this bugs me a tiny bit. Not sure if kyle was getting at this but the spaces between letters are all a bit different. I think it would make it a lot more clean if the 'outline' was all the same width. Sorry to step on your toes bud.

    Not at all man. Yeah, when Kyle mentioned the spacing between the t and y, I noticed the spacing between the a and d. Working on it now. Definitely my biggest issue with lettering I think is the kerning. Thanks Glen.

  • Johnny Keko

    Love this thread. It happened to be I've been meaning to pick up the art of lettering. Trying to find my style still. Some of you may or may not remember the first one from Emptees:




  • drop

    Digging the logos a lot Cody, but beside the kerning i spotted this little problem with the vanishing point. Don't want to step on your toes either, just trying to help :-)

    Not sure how you managed that but I can assure you the vanish point was designated and done correctly.
    I appreciate it though.

  • Demented

    This is awesome guys!

    How do you start on lettering? What's your process? Do you have an idea in your head of exactly how the letters should look, or do you start with rough shapes and start adding/removing/refining?

    It's all good, I'm sure it's not perfect and there's always room to improve. I appreciate the input regardless, keep it coming.
