    Signing painting and Lettering has been the perfect creative outlet outside of product design.

    What helped you practice/get started? I haven't been making anything consistenty and I've gotten way too rusty, started this over the weekend and I still can't get used to painting letters with a brush.

      To get started lettering and sign-painting, I suggest giving yourself a list of words or phrases and do that consistently for a couple months. That'll give you a chance to develop a style and process that you feel comfortable with.

      For me working with sign-painting enamel and brushes drastically improved my pen lettering since I was able to develop those tiny muscles. Totally worth it putting in the time to develop the skills, even if you're not going to be a "sign-painter."

      Good luck, and keep DN updated with your progress!
