Fun time NGS Sign painting courses!

London & Italy sign painter course – You can’t learn to paint a better letter than this!!

VIDEO:  You can do this… of course you can do this…


“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.”

I’m a graphic designer – I’m a sign painter too…

but unlike any other signpainter, I aim give you it all.

The mission is to keep the craft alive

Passing on the brush – selfless, satisfying, real.

I’m Nick Garrett, a traditional London signwriter, author and type designer pretty much single handedly on a mission to share everything I know. Why so?

By sharing with you, this craft will thrive.

Pretty simple really.

I will show you how to handle a brush, the occasional downpour and a very cute ladder – as a fresh signwriter, applying art and methodology smoothly on site, safely, securely every time will say a lot about you.

Courses start at £210.00 per weekend with all materials included.



It’s a steep and fascinating learning curve… the first bit I’ll be ironing out with you!


So while this course is focused on making beautiful cities, letters, finesse and technique, it also gives you the business end,  spawns design value adding and project thinking, getting you laying up the work and earning… the right way, right away.

”Students tell me they have a hard time finding anyone in the trade willing to offer genuine support and share all dedicated teaching… that’s a really hard place to put a student and the craft – I understand the craft needs new kids on the ladder in order to survive”.

And that is the philosophy of this certificated course. To teach the heart of the heart of the practice, all ways, always – a place where it all functions pretty simply.

 Happy Types!

The techniques shared will make you a proper signwriter from go.

”What’s really important is to build the right mechanics right from the start… that’s what this course delivers. Clear-cut honest lettering skills”.


I have put together this comprehensive starter Signwriting course that actually suits all levels from beginner to returning pro. It’s a lot of fun and logical. Not only that but now I’m adding a host of more specialists courses to the 2016 roster: mastering London wharf blocks, Romans, Scripts, Typogaphics and paint effects.

 4 Keystrokes:  The concise NGS strokeplay that makes it all work.

 3 Faced:  Typefaces you must learn because they are the chosen, turnkey design industry styles.

 4 Ways of Sharp Corners:  An assured way of making it perfect every time.

 4 Ways of Spacing:  Again a solid breakdown of how to sort kerning in the bag.

You will receive a certificate of completion

”Occasionally you take part in something that alters the course of your life. I’m not talking total transformation, more like crossing over a road to be in the sunshine. The change happens quickly, you observe it taking effect. Your eyes and heart open, you see things with clarity and meaning, the new experiences create a new, more beautiful, reality and suddenly the path ahead looks different.   

It happened to me this weekend when I learnt to hand paint letters.
