* A brief overview of fonts and typefaces
* How to draw lettering, including use of drop shadows, fancy capitals, decoration
* How to combine text and image in a fun and imaginative way
* How to work up your designed word or phrase into a final piece
* How to implement your design onto a distressed piece of pallet board to take home and hang on your wall.
