I'm excited to announce that in addition to the line up of professional offerings at the Grove, I will be offering a customized version of Level Up Your Lettering. I hope you will join me in San Francisco so that we may letter together!
May 30 & 31, 2019
Be sure to check out the workshops offered before and after to make the most out of your investment.
Get the in-person attention and experience you are looking for to bring your lettering practice to the next level.
Why is it important that you write quickly, legibly, and confidently for and in front of your clients? You know the answer.
We spend a lot of time writing in real time during meetings. Ask yourself... is your writing: Legible? Stylistic? Do you feel confident when writing live in front of others?
It’s likely you are relying on your handwriting for rapid capture. Yet there is so much more to it including hierarchy, emphasis, and composition.
Who this lettering workshop is designed for:
What we will cover in this two-day workshop:
This is not a traditional “hand lettering” class you might be thinking of, it’s about increasing the speed of read for your clients.
All supplies and lunch is included. Feel free to bring a water bottle and snacks.
When we letter together we learn the foundational letterforms and how we can vary them up to make them our own and differentiate ourselves.
In Level Up Your Lettering, I meet you where you are and help you level up your game by building confidence and exploring ways to find your unique style through a series of exercises and exploring a variety of mark-making tools.
Prior to the workshop, I ask participants to fill out a simple lettering self-assessment. I also encourage students to watch the free video series Unlock Your Neuland Markers at www.letslettertogether.com so that we have a common foundation from which to level up and are speaking the same jargon.
The lessons in the free online course are designed to:
In the Level Up Your Lettering in-person workshops, day one is about tools and letterforms. Day two is about the practical application of lettering in your work as a visual practitioner. Day three (optional) is a lettering tour that helps you see letters in your surrounding environment and how to break them down into usable forms in your work.
Additional benefits of attending the workshop:

"This summer I was lucky enough to do a two-day lettering course with the brilliant Heather Leavitt Martinez. It was a really powerful two days for me. I learnt a lot more than just lettering—she's a great teacher (and very funny)—and I think my work went up a level, or maybe even two, as a result. And not just the lettering part, something about the way she teaches made me more conscious about all of my work."
While in Copenhagen for EuViz, I offered a walking lettering tour in heart centre. Now with each city I visit, I seek out lettering styles and invite you to join me. Bring your sketchbook, pencil/pens, and a camera. We'll have an adventure while lettering together throughout the city.
Free for workshop participants.
Friends, colleagues and/or family are invited to join at a $50 USD drop-in fee. We will scout out a place for lunch and snacks but purchasing will be your responsibility.
