You can check out my post on How to Create a Monogram in Design Space here. You can carry this method over to almost all design programs!
What is a monogram?
A monogram is normally 2 or more letters that typically represent a person’s initials. You can see single letter monograms, representing a family name. For weddings, you will notice couples using the first initials of both of their names along with the new surname initial. This idea combines the two sets of initials to create a new one (like marriage!)
What is the difference between Initials and a Monogram?
A monogram is differentiated from initials by the order the letters appear.
Initials are the first letters of one’s name in the order the name is read. For instance, my initials are CLS. Cheryl L. Spangenberg. Initials are normally written in the same size.
Monograms appear in the order of First Initial, Last Initial, Middle Initial. So my monogram would be CSL. Monograms are normally written with the last name initial larger than the first and middle initials.
What are the different types of Monograms?
Scripty and Interlocking Monograms
These are normally with detailed script fonts.
Interlocking Monograms are where the swooshes of the letters interlock with each other.
They can also “kiss”, where they touch but don’t fully interlock.
This type has the letters that resemble the shape of a circle. They may or may not have an actual circle border or background.
Sometimes the border can be decorative with arrows, vines, flowers, etc.
These monograms either use block style fonts or they stack to make the shape of a block. They may or may not have a square border.
You can easily manipulate the nubmer of initials in your monogram with this style.
Single Letter Monograms
These can be blocked font or script font, with or without decorations.
