Here’s a quick written overview of the simple script lettering style:

  • This style has a monoweight thickness (no variation in stroke weight), which makes it perfect for beginners.
  • It has a very friendly and approachable feel. It’s extremely versatile because of its approachability, simplicity and readability.
  • Ideal applications to use it on include greeting cards, branding, invitations and packaging.
  • The most difficult parts of executing this style is keeping all of your letters upright and any characters that include the ‘oval’ stroke (see episode 1), need to be consistent in width.
  • Vary up the thickness of your fineliner’s tip for bolder or lighter weight outcomes (perfect for mixing with other lettering styles).
  • See you next month for episode 3!
