“I don’t have an art or design background… can I do hand lettering?”

The good news is, you don’t need to have a design or lettering background to start hand lettering. Of course, any prior experience will always be helpful, but all you need is a willingness to learn and a commitment to showing up every day.

Lettering is really just drawing, and drawing is something anyone can learn with practice.

It’s going to take a lot of deliberate practice to learn different styles of lettering. You’re going to have to copy many typefaces, and individual letters by tracing, using references, creating without reference, comparing back to the original, and revising.
