If I Made is excited to be partnering with Ali Makes Things on a brand new instructional class on Brush Lettering. Ali’s lettering has been the visual voice for everything from social justice causes and start-ups, to music festivals and apparel. She’s done work for the Pope, popular bands, and awesome brands like Shutterfly, Kohler, and American Greetings. In 2014, she launched an idea for a fun mail subscription– basically, Birchbox for art prints and paper goods. She likes making things, but more than that, loves connecting people and purpose by making things that make a difference.

Ali will take us from the early stages of lettering inspiration and walk us step-by-step through lettering your very own quote: from sketching it out, to digitizing it for print and screen! If you’ve thought about venturing into lettering but don’t know where to start, this is the perfect class for you.

Featured Simple Wedding Inspiration from Nature

We always think the most beautiful inspiration for weddings comes from nature. After all, Mother Nature has done a wonderful job, hasn't she? In today's featured editorial, the creative team elected to work with a very simple, pared-down palette of green and brown, both usually found as the base colors in nature. Highlighting the beauty of these natural tones caused them to push the bounds of their creativity, resulting in a beautiful combination of simple, natural designs with a modern aesthetic.
