This Brand and Corporate ID Design specilaist course has helped me a lot. This was a weak area for me as a digital designer. I build websites and I am ofetn asked to design brand identity logos which was not a strong point for me. With the amazing help from my course tutor I now can come up with creative designs for my clients.
