PREFACE
--------------

Logos are the front line, the identity of a company. They are ubiquitous, and they are vital. In this introductory logo design course, you'll learn how to design logos that will strengthen the visual image of your own or your client's company. Working with a design pro, you'll explore the development of logos through a series of case studies. Each exercise combines a written, conceptual component with hands-on projects for creating an effective logo.

Logo design can be one of the most challenging and rewarding forms of graphic design. Distilling an organization’s essence down to a single graphic form is often the result of a very rigorous process. This includes developing a creative brief, a design conceptualization and lots of sketching.

In this course we will examine the necessary steps and processes to achieving a great logo by helping you understand your client’s goals and personality. Emphasis will be placed on developing ideas and sketches to create a great word-mark or symbol. The final design assignment can be an addition to your portfolio.
