____________________

Need a logo for your startup or blog, but don't want to hire a designer? That’s OK. You can learn how to create a simple logo by yourself. I’ll show you how to do this in PowerPoint 2010 (or you can use a newer version).

In the first part of the course I will explain you good logo design principles, basics of color theory and shape psychology. You will also learn the rules behind combining different fonts so that they look good together and will find out how to install free and beautiful fonts on your computer so that you can use them in PowerPoint and create more sophisticated designs.

In the second part you will discover how to practically create your own logo in PowerPoint by using the existing shapes, combining them and creating new shapes. You will also learn how to test your logo to be sure that it will look good and will be readable on different color backgrounds and in different sizes. 

And in the bonus section, you will find out where you can get free images for your other design projects,  and few more cheap logo creation alternatives.

Don't worry if you haven't studied in a design or art school, because with the tools available, ANYBODY can create simple logos for their startup, blog or website. And this is what you will learn in this course. As a result, you will be able to create your logo even if you are just trying for the first time.

Since I value your time, the lectures are just as long as they need to be in order to show you practical information and tips. No empty talk.

In the case you don't find this course valuable, you can always receive a full refund within 30 days of purchase through Udemy.
