No matter what your natural handwriting style looks like, there are ways to make it fun, beautiful, and unique with this original Nerdabe course. Join designer, illustrator and author Samantha Dion Baker in this stress-free class, where she will walk us through a few simple lessons that celebrate the unexpected, natural, beautifully-imperfect handwriting style we all have.

So grab a pencil and some paper, and spend 45 minutes thoughtfully drawing with your own hand lettering with Samantha. After you’ve finished, you’ll not only have beautiful finished lettering artwork, but a range of tools and tips for continuing to develop your style. This is a great class for designers to learn new lettering skills to incorporate into their own work, or beginner-level creatives that want to write delightful handwritten holiday envelopes or enhance their journaling experience.
