    Hey Jessica,

    Just here to say that I took one of your Type Together classes and it was wonderful.

    My only question would be how did you get started in lettering, what are some resources or recommendations on how to get started in the field?

      I started by incorporating lettering into my existing illustration projects—as a designer you could do this by offering to letter some headlines for a project instead of using a typeface (if that worked for the project). As far as resources, there are now loads of online classes (skillshare, lynda, etc), and the Type Directors Club is a great place to look for workshops / livestreamed events / book recommendations. I also have a Pinterest board of all design related books if you want to check that out!
