Meet your teacher 

Hey! I’m Aurelie, a multi-passionate lettering artist from the Gold Coast, in Australia.

If you're here, I'm pretty sure that's because you've seen some of my lettering work online. And as you might have already guessed, hand lettering is my passion and I absolutely love sharing it with upcoming creatives like you!

I've been drawing letters for as long as I can remember but in 2017, I finally bought myself an iPad with the Procreate app. It was love at first sight!

I love to challenge myself and learn more about the app. That's why every year, I participate in 36 Days of Type. It's a challenge that invites designers, illustrators and graphic artists to express their own interpretation of the letters and numbers of the alphabet. Each day, you are prompted to design a letter or a number in order to explore typography and its endless visual possibilities. This year was the third time I participated and for this edition, I decided to go back in time and draw letters inspired by my favourite movies of the 80s and 90s. I've become obsessed with this nostalgic style, here's why I've decided to share it with you too!

To this day, I have worked with hundreds of design students and I’m obsessed with seeing them improve their skills. What I know for sure is that it is a combination of mindset, practice and also… accountability. So let's get started drawing together!
