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 was one of the most important teachers I ever had. Having him introducing me to the world of 3D made a real difference - and was also good fun. He always shared his deep knowledge of the software in an accessible way. Anyone interested in 3D would be lucky to have Roman as a tutor."
"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. Thanks to this course, I now feel I have an infinity to explore, where before I saw only obstacles. Low poly is fantastic, and Roman's teaching is perfect for me."
"I can confidently say that the course helped me get into 3D faster than any other platform out there. Roman breaks down Blender into digestible chunks that are practical and I was able to apply those techniques into my daily design workflow. I highly recommend for anyone."
