Create 3D Lettering in Blender
Unlock your creative potential and create beautiful 3D type layouts to complement your designs, websites, or social media posts
Why 3D lettering?
Lettering and typography are beautiful art disciplines and when taken into a third dimension, the possibilities are endless.
What’s more, 3D design is firing on all cylinders past couple years and the demand is still growing. When combined with the typography, it can be great way to create beautiful website hero images, social media posts, or even prints or T-shirts.
This course is a series of three episodes, that will guide you through the creation of lettering layouts in free 3D tool Blender, based on the work of amazing hand lettering artist, Ian Barnard.
When you’re learning new skill, you want results. And fast. I know, I’ve been there. That’s why, this course is split into episodes, that give you the great looking results in shortest amount of time possible. You pick up new techniques as you go and by the end of the course, you will find out, that there is no limit on layouts you can create.
You can follow the lessons with no prior experience with Blender or 3D whatsoever, but if you’re familiar with 3D and just want to get up to speed with the lettering techniques, there are handoff files for every single chapter, so it’s easy to skip and continue, where I left off.
I share a lot of personal workflow tips along the way and add a little bit of that secret lighting sauce on top :)

"Roman's instructions are always detailed and clear. Even if you don't have any background with 3D software, you will quickly be able to get started and develop advanced skills on Blender. All his lessons have very thoughtful examples and once you start practicing, it becomes really easy to create your own things."

"I've completed my very first composition, and it's both a pride and a relief. Before, I just couldn't find the tools that would unlock my creative mind.
