What you will Learn

MODULE ONE: What is Logo Design

You will start this course by looking at what is Logo Design, which is essential before you start designing or planning logos. Being able to understand how a logo works and what is needed to get the best possible results gives the most creative designers an edge over everyone else.

MODULE TWO: Typography

Now you will work with your very own one-to-one Design & Training Coach on the main attributes of a logo, starting with Typography styles in a logo. You will be presented with a project to carry out as part of this module. 

MODULE THREE: Shapes & Icons

The next important attribute of a logo is its shape and style. Here again you with work with your one to one design and training coach on a project to help you to build your skills in this area.

Trying to come up with ideas can sometimes be difficult. Here you will look at effective ways of developing your creative process to help you to come up with those unique logo ideas  


Using what you have covered in module 4, you are now going to cover the area of research, which again is a very important area when coming up with a logo design that works.

Time to start creating your first effective logo. Working with your one to one Design & Training Coach, you will be presented with your first main logo design project, which will allow you to put into practice what you have learned up to this point – this module will cover the first part of the main project.
