Digitized Calligraphy and Lettering:

Calligraphy and lettering have been around for centuries, but with the advent of digital technology, they have taken on a new life.

 

Digitized calligraphy and lettering are now an art form in their own right, used to create one-of-a-kind designs for occasions and items requiring a digital version of handwriting, such as the lettering I did for the wine label pictured below. 

What is Digitized Calligraphy and Lettering?

Digitized calligraphy and lettering is the process of converting handwriting into a digital form that can be processed by a computer using digital tools such as Adobe Illustrator or Procreate.

 

I use a stylus or pens and nibs to create the letters on a tablet or paper, that will be scanned and manipulated into a usable digital file that can be saved in various formats such as .jpeg, .pdf, .png, .ai or similar.

The perks of digitizing calligraphy include it being scaled infinitely large or small because of vectorization making it suitable for business cards, banners, and neon lights, and custom color matching to hex codes.
