Be Happy Hand Lettering

Updated: Mar 12, 2023

This is my first blog post about my graphic design processes and journey.

If you follow me on Tik Tok or Instagram you know that I record my designs in Adobe Illustrator and post speed art videos of my process.

I have started a new series and am trying a new style. I didn’t end up recording my process on my “Be Happy” design, as it took me a few days to make. I was also very nervous to post this because it’s my first hand lettering typography.

This one is very personal to me, as I put a lot of my emotions into it. I’ve been working on myself a lot lately and one of the things I’m working on is trying to be happier in my everyday life. Creating this was a great reminder of all the things in my life to be happy about.

I sketched the layout on my IPad using Procreate and then I brought it into Adobe Illustrator to vectorize and added a simple 3D effect to give it some dimension. I’m loving the exploration of new typography and stepping out of my comfort zone with my designs.

I made a few different colour variations, I can't decide which is my favourite!
