Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Who should take this course?, part of Logo Design: Techniques.
- [Instructor] If you're watching this, then I'm sure you've spent some time thinking about logos. Whether you've yet to design your first logo or you've already designed many, you'll get something from this course. Perhaps you're a graphic designer interested in branching out into the field of logo design or you're an experienced logo designer looking for inspiration. A few points before we begin. I'm using Adobe Illustrator, because it creates vector artwork that is crisp and scalable, two requirements of any logo. So that I can move at a brisk pace and keep focus on the topic of logo design, I'm assuming you're comfortable with the basics of Illustrator. If not, there are many courses here in the training library to help you get up to speed, and you might want to refer to those as you move through the course.
