She was that girl in school - who doodled all over her textbooks.
Little did she know that her passion for artistic expression would lead to a career in graphic design. The Lettering Workbook began with the intent to create an actual brush lettering workbook! It then branched out into an Instagram page that aims to inspire others to have fun and learn through creative experimentation. You don't have to be perfect to try!
A graphic designer by day, KY conducts workshops for corporates, adults and kids, in her spare time.
Beyond lettering, she is passionate about imparting real working-life skills to children and youth, equipping them with knowledge in art and design which may help them develop their future career path. There are no silly dreams, accidental talents, she believes that everyone is destined for greatness!
1. When I signed up for the course (for 2 pax), it was advertised that Faber-Castell Calligraphy Brush Markers (12colours) would be given, but we did not receive any - only a single black brush pen!! The Lettering Workbook responded that it was out of stock. Can you please look into this?
2. It was held in a central atrium which was extremely noisy so it was difficult to hear the instructor.
Suffice to say, if the first point is not addressed, I won't be attending another class by the instructor nor will I be recommending this instructor.
As it was an event held at the main atrium, instead of just demonstrating the strokes at the front of the class. KY went to each desk to further explain and share with us tips to perfecting the strokes.
Would recommend and attend her workshop again.
2. I enjoyed the lesson but had expected more skills to be taught within the 1.5 hours.
3. I had signed up for 2 sessions : 'Brush Lettering' & 'Watercolour Lettering', not realising that exactly the same skills were taught, except for the second one that uses watercolour. Perhaps the Instructor could have advised by putting a footnote to say that the same skills will be taught in both 'Brush Lettering' & 'Watercolour Lettering'. Otherwise, the participant would feel misled and 'pay double' learning exactly the same skills.
OR ... Perhaps Smarter.Me could have alerted the participant not to sign up for 2 almost similar courses.
4. Can I be compensated in any way? :))
