Course Description

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!

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.

Starting the course you also get my logo design book titled Studylogo. It is a 70 pages long e-book about logo design theory. It covers a bit more what is in the course, and gives a great overview about the topic.


What are the requirements?

  • you need a computer with Inkscape installed
  • you need to have a basic knowledge of Inkscape, tools and interface
  • you need to find a real client (I will explain this in the course!)

What am I going to get from this course?

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

What is the target audience?

  • this course is NOT about the basics of Inkscape
  • this course covers my own prowed logo design process, tricks and tips
