Creating Logos in Illustrator Workshop – April 4
Logos are a core element in creating a brand identity, yet they can sometimes be a pain to create. While some may choose Photoshop as their design tool of choice, top graphic designers will use Illustrator instead. Unlike Photoshop, Illustrator is vector-based and enables users much more power to create sharp, clean, and scalable graphics. However, while many users are familiar with the pixel-based Photoshop, many do not feel comfortable quite yet with the vector-based tools in Illustrator.
In this workshop, students will be recreating 2 logos with an instructor in hands-on activities, discussing tips and tricks in understanding good logo design. To partake in the activities, students will need to bring in their own laptop and own a copy of Illustrator CS4 or higher. The instruction will have step-by-step demonstrations of each Illustrator effect. The last half hour of class will be dedicated to answering questions or starting on personal projects with the instructor’s help.
For Future Study
We highly recommend that students continue to take the Illustrator Fundamentals class afterwards. In that class, students will be able to break down each feature, dive deeper into each concept, and learn ways to put all of them together to apply in real life scenarios.
