A technique I found when researching brushed lettering was using 4 guides (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QchX1vSTFYs) to help create an even and structured look to letterforms, the 4 guides represent ascender line, x height, baseline and descended line. I found this really useful as it helped keep consistency in my work.
I wanted to find a short inspirational quote to use for this small brief. I came across the phrase ‘learn then earn’ which I thought was a clever play on the two words closely linked together. I liked the effect the brush gave to letters, especially on the last ‘N’ where the brush was quite dry but gave a really nice effect.
