During this Community Hangout, we had the pleasure of chatting with long-time lettering artist and font designer Debi Sementelli. Although she remains at her core a lettering artist, her passion has evolved into teaching brush lettering classes on platforms like Skillshare or Adobe MAX to creatives.

Debi enjoys sharing her “love of the brush”, which is why today she discussed with us the 5 mistakes brush lettering beginners make (and how to fix them):

  1. Fancy before foundation
  2. Inconsistent Letter Forms
  3. Inconsistent Lines
  4. Overflourishing
  5. Poor spacing

Give it a watch and let us know if you too have fallen prey to these common mistakes!
