Students exercises & creative approaches


Hi, I am Stefan Kunz a Letter Designer, Artist, Teacher, Book author, and coffee enthusiast from Switzerland.  

In order to get there where I am today I had to learn how to master any styles and find my voice as a lettering artist, overcome the fear of drawing quotes with more than three words to find clients who’d hire me. It took me years but I’ve learned a lot along the way and finally get to share it in this online course.

My mission is to «Create to inspire others.»

That’s why I launched this online course. To share everything I know, not just how I do it but how you can get there yourself without going through all the fuss I had to.

So that you can create and be confident doing so. 

“As a graphic designer, I am fascinated with lettering and typography and using these skills in my work, I enjoyed how Stefan took the lettering process down to basics.”
