Description

I would suggest becoming comfortable with Adobe Illustrator before taking this class. 

Enjoy this FREE class!

You do not have to be an expert, but feel comfortable with the basics. I also offer an Illustrator Crash Course if you need to brush up on your basic skills. 

I also offer a 6.5 hour Photoshop class that includes beginner and intermediate instruction and classes to help you apply your knowledge. Just click on my profile to view my classes I offer (use promo code PHOTOSHONOW10 to enjoy 70% off my photoshop class). 

In this Logo Design class we will travel through the logo design process and explore:

  • The Grid System
  • Font Types
  • Ideation and Concept Creation
  • Refining Our Designs
  • Developing the Right Color Palette
  • Presenting Our Logos to the Client

This class is designed to review the execution part of logo design. This class assumes you know your target market and have already done your marketing research. You have a company name or a client brief in hand and you are ready to put pen to paper! 

A bonus section on fonts and typography is also included with this class. This class is a supplemental class that will help assist you in your logo design process as fonts play a vital role in the development of a strong logo. 

You do not have to have Adobe Photoshop or illustrator to get something out of this section, but I would suggest at least a trial version so you can go along with me. We will go over:

  • Font Types
  • Serif and San-Serif Fonts
  • Font Weights
  • Font Hierarchy
  • Kerning or Font Spacing
  • We will even create an Ad that uses all of these elements we learned in the class. 
Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone interested in the logo design process and how to create concepts and create and finish a logo using Adobe illustrator
  • Anyone wanting to become more comfortable with using font or typography in all aspects of design

12+ Years of Design and Marketing Goodness

I have have had many self-made titles over the years: Brand Manager, Digital Architect, Interactive Designer, Graphic Designer, Web Developer and Social Media Expert, to name a few. My name is Lindsay Marsh and I have been creating brand experiences for my clients for over 11 years. I have made more than a half million dollars as a freelance graphic designer and have worked on a wide variety of projects both digital and print. 

I have had the wonderful opportunity to be able to take classes at some of the top design schools in the world, Parsons at The New School, The Pratt Institute and NYU. I am currently transitioning to coaching and teaching.
