@marleylettering is a Instagram account that I created in the spring of 2016 as a way to push myself to create regularly. Using a painbrush or pen, I write out words and sayings by hand before dropping them into Illustrator and transforming them into vectors. I then drop these hand lettered pieces over pictures, to then be posted onto @marleylettering.
Not only did @marleylettering help me further my skills in Adobe Illustrator, creating this Instagram showed me the power of social media and personal branding. I was forced to grow and adapt to the challenge of creating original content on a regular basis, but with that challenge, my art was in the pockets and across the social media feeds of my followers. My @marleylettering brand has now extended beyond social media and has helped me establish a name for myself as a freelance designer..
