Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!
Today, as I was trying to think of an interesting post to start this blog with, a thought hit me – what better way to start a blog than to give you guys a small introduction about me, this blog, and the reason I’m doing all this. (BTW, I’m super grateful that you are spending your time reading this post. It really means a lot to me. Do leave a comment below so that I can thank you personally :D)
Okay let’s begin.
My name is Atul Pradhananga (pronounced as – Pra-dha-nang-ga) and I design brand identities with personality & purpose. I wear many hats – I’m a designer, hand letterer, and a brand strategist, and honestly, I love being all of it.
Recently, I was bitten by the hand lettering bug and I’ve been trying to teach myself the art of hand lettering while sharing my journey over at my Instagram. I started a 100 Days of Hand Lettering challenge, where I create a piece of hand lettering and share it everyday for 100 days straight. The lettering community at Instagram is super awesome and helpful. I’ve made some really cool friends who are crazy talented, but also very humble.
I’m completely self taught and I’ve had a lot of help from the creative communities on the internet and all around me. That’s why, through my blog, I am trying to give back to the community by sharing what I know and what I learn.
You can expect to receive a new blog post every Tuesday from me. I don’t really know what I’ll be writing about exactly, but you can expect articles related to design, branding, hand lettering, marketing, and some tutorials. Plus, if you want me to write about something specific, tell me and I’ll.
And since this is a BLOG, I will also be sharing my journey of becoming a better designer, better hand letterer, and also, a better human being.
My goal is simple – to help designers and artist get past their fear of self criticism and self doubt and empower them to be brave, take action, and make good art.
I want to help you in anyway possible, so feel free to reach out to me and ask any questions you have about the things you are struggling with. I read each and every email and reply personally 🙂
If you are more into social media stuffs, I’m @atulpradhananga everywhere in the internet ( or you can click the social media buttons to your right.)
Oh! I almost forgot to tell you: You can subscribe to my weekly newsletter where I get extremely personal and share stuffs that I don’t share anywhere else. It will be like having a cup of coffee with me every week. So do join in!
I’m sharing everything I know & everything I learn on my journey to becoming a better designer. I’m learning a lot and so will you.
