Let's go BIG together!

Scale up your letters with the BigOne® Art marker!

Get your hands on the world’s largest brush nib marker and learn how big you can go!

In this FREE, ~1-hour session, you will learn:

  • What scaling up your letters mean,
  • How to hold the marker to get the most out of the brush nib, and
  • The limitless variations of line widths and how to apply them in your work.

What you will want to have on hand:

  • BigOne® Art markers (any color)
  • Paper (you choose, but lined is recommended)
  • Handout

Upon registration, you will receive an email with links, handouts, and a discount code should you want to purchase the BigOne® Art marker. You will also gain access to the Unlock Your Neuland Markers online course in case you want to get started lettering.

With the Neuland BigOne® Art marker, you can scale up a variety of lettering styles:

  • Architect
  • Brush script
  • National Park
  • Sign Painter
  • Twinkle
  • Wacky Western
  • Zombie Hand

These are all great lettering styles to use on banners, signs, flipcharts, and wall charts. There will be time in the session to ask questions and request any of these lettering styles to be demonstrated.

Why is this session free?
Because there shouldn't be any barriers to access foundational tips and techniques.

If you wish to pay for the session, your contribution will benefit the scholarship fund at Let's Letter Together!

So far, we have been fortunate to award over 25 scholarships for those who may experience barriers to participation due to the ongoing impacts of institutional racism, bigotry, misogyny and colonization, and who also enrich and strengthen our field of practice by ensuring a diversity of cultures, identities and perspectives that represent our community and our creative work.

What People Are Saying:

I love your "Show, don't tell" approach. The way you just grab a piece of paper and SHOW how to letter something or explain spacing with the red markers - VERY visual and impactful.
