About the session...

Designed with the facilitator or trainer in mind…
This hands-on workshop is for those leading from the front of the room.

Facilitating conversations or training others is a process in itself. You should feel confident about your handwriting so you can focus on what’s really important: people! Oftentimes we rely on the markers and flipcharts or whiteboards provided for us. Leave this webinar knowing what to do with any marker you pick up and write using a lettering style that will make you feel smarter and will be legible for your reader.

MAFN Webinars are held 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM, Eastern Time


Participants will:

  • Learn a lettering style that will help improve your handwriting
  • Master the round nib marker and better understand the wedge nib marker
  • See how emphasis and hierarchy help readers synthesize information more efficiently
  • Gain free access to additional lettering resources to improve your legibility, creativity and speed

About the Presenter

Heather Leavitt Martinez is a visual practitioner, art coach and lettering artist living in Southwest Colorado. After studying with master sign painters, graffiti artists, and calligraphers—which she continues to do today—she decided to translate what she learned to teach other visual practitioners the tradecraft of breaking down any lettering styles into the tools we use. Heather believes that what we write on the wall is more than mere handwriting—letters are the building blocks of communication. Get that right while executing with confidence, and visual practitioners can then focus on other aspects of the work.

As a co-founder of the Visioneering team near Washington, DC, Heather helped develop and maintain a 6-person team of visual practitioners in 2014. Heather has presented hands-on lettering breakout sessions at two IFVP (International Forum of Visual Practitioners) conferences and at EuViz Denmark. Heather was one of the Keynote speakers at VizConf 2019 in Melbourne, Australia and is a Neuland Ambassador.

Heather’s recent book, “Lettering Journey” was inspired by the North American cross-country trip she and her husband Ray took after leaving DC. She finds letters and teaches others how to make them everywhere she goes.
