I have been experimenting with different types of lettering for the past year and half. Lately I have been exploring different ways of digitizing the lettering to create different styles of casual hand-lettering and elegant styles of hand-lettering. Each lettering style from my experience is better achieved with different techniques, be it using the width tool in illustrator or duplicating he initial path and joining the ends (for a thicker/chunkier) lettering style.
This post is an exploration in the elegant style of lettering, which I have not had the opportunity to work in. It also entirely relied upon the width tool within adobe illustrator to achieve the seamless transition from thin to thicker lines.
