New Video Course: Identity Design


We're pleased to announce our 7th in-depth course available to Tuts+ Premium members: Identity Design with Ben Gribbin. Over 18 lessons and nearly 3hrs of video training, you'll learn all the foundational skills needed to start doing identity design work for clients. This includes: research, brainstorming, sketching, designing a logo, business cards, print flyers, web elements (such as banner ads), as well as timescaling, pricing and where to find clients.

Not a member? Not to worry! There are four public lessons available. Links after the jump.

Public Lessons

  • Introduction to Identity Design - We’re going to first look at what Identity Design is and consider what the main differences are between a logo, a brand, and an identity.
  • Understanding and Interpreting the Design Brief - We’re going to look at what is often the first step in an identity design project: the design brief. We’ll look at what a design brief does and how it effects your design process.
  • Brainstorming & Sketching - Today we are covering sketching and brainstorming. Specifically we’re going to look at brainstorming an identity design project.
  • What is a Logo? - We’re going to cover just exactly what a logo is and what makes a good logo. A logo is not a brand. So just exactly what is a logo and where does it fit in your brand?
