Hand Lettering + Text in Procreate

Today, it’s back to business and we’re creating a lettering composition in Procreate.

This design was the 2nd option for a live demo session I had with Design Cuts back in October. I’ve had a few requests to publish the full tutorial, so here it is!

One percent better everyday lettering

Create stunning calligraphy in Procreate with no experience or special tech skills (even if you have messy handwriting and don’t think you’re creative enough)


The piece uses a mix of different techniques including clipping masks, text creation and refining your lettering using layers! There’s a freebie download for one of the paint streak textures used in the tutorial so don’t forget to grab that too (just under the video)!

Incase you’re curious, the quote / concept ‘One percent better everyday‘ is taken from author, James Clear. He writes about goal setting, motivation and productivity. I love his writings about incremental improvements and ‘the power of tiny gains’.

Ok, let’s dive in!
