More about this course

In this course I cover the theory and the creative process of logo design from the first client brief through finding ideas and creating sketches, until the presentation of the final design to the client. According to this, half of the course is about logo design theory and process, the other half is about designing logos in Inkscape - with all the practical tips I can give.

Inkscape is a great free vector tool you can use to create real, professional level logo design for real clients. Clients care about results, they need a good logo from a flexible, professional designer. To achieve this, you don't need expensive software. You need to be clever and creative, and I show you how! 

  • work like a professional logo designer
  • create creative and smart logo design
  • understand what makes a good logo

The course project

As explained in the 2nd lecture, I want you to get real. I want you to get out of your comfort zone, and create a real logo for a real organisation with a purpose! It can be an NGO, a student group, band, your local church, anything. But it has to be a real logo for real people. Because real people have goals and opinions. And this will teach you to work and create logo in real life.

So four your project create and share a logo design you made. Just a simple image is enough. no need for fancy presentation this time :)
