Creating Professional Logos in an Instant

Welcome

01:27

Designing logos for clients when time is short can be a tall order. This short course will show you how to bypass the panic and instead develop a foolproof method for creating professional-standard logos which are sure to impress. We’ll break the method down into three simple building blocks, allowing you to create multiple logo concepts which combine vector elements to high-impact effect. By the end of the course, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge and skills to create your very own flexible “logo kits” which meet the brief each and every time.

If you want to go further and learn how to create visual brands from scratch and develop your brand designs into professional, comprehensive brand identities, watch our course Designing and Building a Brand.
