Graphic Design for Beginners: Create Logos in Adobe Illustrator


Do you want to learn how to create custom logos from scratch? Well, if you’re a graphic designer or you wish to become a graphic designer, creating a logo is going to be one of the number one things you get asked to do all of the time in this course; I’m going to show you exactly how to create beautiful custom logos that will impress clients and help you land more work as a graphic designer.

My name is Derek Mitchell. I’m a creative director with over 20 years of experience working as a graphic designer and a web developer. And I’ve been fortunate enough to work with brands such as MTV, Netflix, Nintendo, uh, Nickelodeon, the discovery channel, and a handful of others. The project for this course will be a ton of fun and probably a little bit ridiculous. Here’s what we’re going to do. We will take a spreadsheet, which I know immediately sounds boring, but hear me out.

We’re going to take a spreadsheet. That’s got a bunch of different random words on it, and we’re going to use a number generator to grab these different words and create a completely random, super custom logo. So what’s cool about this is you can either follow along and do the exact same thing that I do to create the logo and learn the skills you need to do this. Or you can create, uh, your own custom logo based on the same styles that I’m showing you.

So maybe the words that I pick, you create your own custom words that are random, and we go from there, or perhaps you already have a client who wants you to make a logo right now, or maybe, you know, a friend that, uh, has a, has a business they’re starting, and you wanna help them out and volunteer and maybe make a logo for them.

There’s a lot of different ways you can use these skills immediately and follow along with the class. We’re gonna do a few different things. We’re going to be jumping in using a notebook to sketch out some ideas. Uh, you can follow along doing that or a piece of paper. We’re gonna jump in with an iPad little bit and show how to create digital art in here. Maybe you know how to use procreate, uh, or Adobe fresco, or even illustrator on the iPad. There’s a lot of different ways you can sketch up ideas and then get them into the computer. We’re going to be using Adobe illustrator in this class primarily, uh, or perhaps you’ve got a walking tablet, uh, which is basically this thing here. So it’s got a pen and a tablet. And when you draw them the this, it draws on the computer. So there’s a lot of ways to get your art into the computer.

And speaking of art, maybe you’re not an artist. Maybe you’re terrible at art. Like I was when I first started, I’m going to show you how to use the software to create highly polished, beautiful work. Even if you have no drawing skills whatsoever. But if you do have drawing skills, that’s a bonus because you’ll be to take those ideas and those sketches and learn how to bring them in and basically make them digital and how to use those in your logo. So we have a lot of ground to cover. So let’s dive in.
