Hi! My name is Christiane and I have been practicing lettering for over 5 years now. 
In 2018 I started creating lettering designs for all kinds of clients – from big international companies to local bars and private customers. Lettering is my passion and I love passing on my knowledge, tipps & tricks to lettering beginners.
This „Lettering Mini Course“ is a quick and compact introduction to the lettering basics from me to you.
With easy-to-digest video tutorials and working material, I want to give you a great start into the beautiful and versatile world of lettering so you don’t feel overwhelmed.
