  • Based on sketches and ideas, students determine what is the best way to continue with their lettering project:
    • Is it best to take photographs of objects?
    • Use traditional material (paint, draw, etc) or work digitally (with application)?
  • Once you know which way you are working, then determine process to follow:
    • Capture image (via camera, scanner/ phone/ app/ copier)
    • Bring image into Illustrator/Photoshop/other apps. This depends on your solution, for example:
      • Trace or use pen tool in Illustrator
      • Clean or adjust colors in Photoshop
    • If working by hand: Use tracing paper and pencils, then marker to clean image.
    • Capture image again and repeat steps if necessary
  • Careful with spelling (you are essentially drawing so there is no automatic spell check!) and keep work editable if corrections needs to be made
