10 January Hand Lettering Styles to Start Fresh

I love hand lettering in different styles! It’s one of my favorite parts about hand lettering. From the very beginning when I first started I always loved to practice my lettering by pushing myself to create different styles of letters and words. Some people want to learn one specific font and master that. I wanted to explore all the different styles and how I could mold a letter in different ways. Neither way is better than the other, it’s just about what’s most exciting to you!

So if you’re like me and want to explore different styles to find what you like, you’re in the right place!

How to Come up With Unique Lettering Styles

When you are trying to come up with different lettering styles, look at the details of each letter. Ask yourself some questions. What are parts you can change? Try describing what the word looks like. Can you make something look chunky, elegant, or quirky?

Next, look at lots of lettering styles to get inspiration. I like to start with fonts. You can use websites like Google Fonts, Dafont, Canva, and Creative Fabrica to search for different types and then browse to get inspiration.

Finally, it takes a lot of practice! Take a blank piece of paper, choose one word, and start filling the page with that word in all different styles. Know that you won’t like every single style you come up with. Don’t pressure yourself to make a “perfect” page of styles. Just get out all the styles you can think of even if it doesn’t turn out just right at first. It might inspire you to try something different.

Here are 10 specific styles to get you started:

  1. Tall and Narrow
  2. Short and Wide
  3. Quirky Print
  4. Simple
  5. Open Faux Calligraphy
  6. Flourished Loops
  7. Straight Print
  8. Round
  9. Bouncy
  10. Bouncy and Wide
