Description

In this class you will learn how to create a very special type of 3D Lettering. The Beveled Style or in other words the Digital Stone Carving Style. For this you don't need to know anything about 3D software, you can do it all in a 2D software like Adobe Illustrator!

If you want to come along and design as you learn, this class project is very straight forward:

  1. Select a word and roughly start playing with it until you find a visual composition that pleases you
  2. Now sketch that word with a little more detail
  3. Digitalize your word or select a Font that resembles your design
  4. Apply the Digital Stone Carving Style to your design in Adobe Illustrator

Please share your work with the community, I will be here answering questions and giving tips.

Good Luck!

Natanael one day decided to play with fonts and never stopped. Inspired by the typography classes while taking his degree in graphic design and multimedia in ESAD.CR he started drawing Exo. It was a successful project on kickstarter and is part of the Google Fonts Library. Since then he has already released two more types via Google Fonts, Cinzel and Exo 2. Apart from other commissioned works he has been creating his own typographic library. 

His work has been used by brands like Google, Lego, Fifa, AMG, Blizzard, Netflix, among many others. His fonts were downloaded hundreds of thousands of times and are seen every day by millions of people. Although the play became work, he hasn’t stopped having fun drawing fonts.
