Team Manila.

Last month, I headed out to the Studio of one of my favorite Design/Creative agency. Team Manila has been in the design industry for 10 years and it is such a great honour to be teaching the artists what I know about Brush Lettering. One of the owners and creative directors, Jowee Alviar, was cool enough to join the class :)

Shared my design process, drills sheets, as well as my brush pens! Each artist got to do some basic brush drills and lots of practice on words and phrases. These people are experts in Typography (and are super creative), they don't really need that much teaching! :)

Happy students, Happy teacher! 

Happy students, Happy teacher! 

Thank you for inviting me, Team Manila <3

Pass the cheer!

It's the most wonderful time of the year... to give the gift of art and letters, and what joy it is to pass the cheer!

This Christmas season, I have prepared a simple gift box for those of you who want to learn or share to someone the art of brush lettering! The kit is Php 1,600 and it includes:

Brush Lettering 101 module, Sunday Paper Unlined notebook, Zig Brush Writer, Wink of Stella brush pen, Pencil, 6-pc Notecard sampler set (Black, Kraft, White), 5 pcs Merchandise Kraft Tags, 5ft Jute Twine, and 2 wooden clips. 

Everything is packed beautifully in a kraft box. If you wish to give it to someone else as a gift, I can include a personalized (hand-written) name tag.

Limited supplies only.
