Learn how to approach the challenges presented when creating a logo for a media company.
- Hi, I'm Nigel French. Welcome to Design Projects, Designing a Logo for a Media Company. A few years ago I recorded a course for lynda.com, Designing a Logo. I'm very happy that it's proved a popular title. This course is a companion piece. We're looking at creating a logo and several variants of that logo for a start-up video production company, Red 30 Media. While this is a fictional client, I will be going through all the steps of creating the logo, from the initial client meeting all the way through to preparing the final logo files for use in print and on screen.
I'll be sharing my thought processes and methodology and showing you my ideas, even the bad ones, so that you can see how, through a process of refinement and reworking and collaboration, we can ultimately drill down to an effective design solution. Let's get started with Designing a Logo for a Media Company.
- Understanding what makes a good logo
- Assessing the scope of the job and your client's needs
