- So that was pretty fun right?…At least I had fun making it.…Creating quality artwork is always such a pleasure.…I hope you learned a thing or two…about the logo creation process.…I also hope I brought you some new information about things…like custom guides, spot colors and the pixel grid.…Not to mention the larger worlds of Illustrator…and Photoshop in general.…If this has wet your appetite for still more information…about designing logos, try out William Lidwell's…short and sweet The Science of Logo Design.…The lynda.com library also features logo courses…from the likes of Nigel French, Von Glitschka,…and Bill Gardner, all of whom have…their own unique approaches.…
If you'd like to see how I express…the final photographic version…of the frontiers unlimited logo using…only spot colors inside Photoshop,…then check out my weekly course Deke's Techniques…specifically movies 411 through 414…which are slated to release in May of 2015.…And they take up right where this course leaves off.…And if you'd like to get more familiar…
