Join Shauna Bybee for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a simple logo, part of Sketch for UX Design.
- [Instructor] Our app design is coming along.…Let's now replace this placeholder here…with an actual logo for our app.…We can start by clicking on our placeholder rectangle…and hitting cmd + 2 to zoom in on it.…Let's use this rectangle as a container for our logo.…I'll drag to remove the fill and instead add a border.…We'll select white for the color…and make sure it's aligned to the inside…so that it has a nice clean border.…To check and make sure that that border's looking good,…we'll want to be sure and use ctrl + p to show the pixels.…
If you're not seeing the pixels,…trying hitting ctrl + p a few times.…That will toggle on and off this Show Pixels setting.…Next let's add the text for our logo.…I'll hit t to hit a text layer,…and I'll type out Basil and the ampersand,…hit Enter, and type the word Thyme.…That'll be the name of our app.…The font I'm using here is Oswald…and if you don't have it,…you can download it from Google Fonts…or I've included it in the Exercise Files.…
You can also pick any other font…
