For the sake of coordination.

This post will be modified to contain batches of today's lesson.(simply refresh every 15 to 30mins)

Thanks all for your interest.
This year, hustle must pay!

You can read tutorials from your mobile , but remember to put things into practice on your pc.

(1)-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Types of logos for branding

We all know what a logo is, it is simply the visual identity of any company,business or startup. Your logo is what represents a company on different platforms, online,on billboards,on paper etc. Mere seeing a logo, everybody can recognise the company from afar.

Logos can be of different types

Symbols or icons/mascotte-- icons are used to represent the company (windows,apple,mtn etc)

Topography/wordmarks -logos may exist as full topography texts too with custom fonts(Google,Yahoo,pinterest logos)

Combination Marks - combining the 2 above/below (UBA has letter and icon by the side,Tony Elumelu Foundation(word and logo)

Letter / Initial / Emblems - coining out a logo using the letters that make up a company name (Tony Elemelu(TE) , Electonic Arts(EA)


Each logo type has its peculiar application depending on the industry and company name. Fashion, organizations, mobile apps, websites, brands,churches etc all have their peculiarity. Read more online and study as many logos as possible ,see the categories and industry they fall into.

As a designer, it si your job to use discretion to judge which category to use for the design

Their applications and colors.

Letter / Initial / Emblems

Case study http://footprint2africa.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/NBC.jpg

The above link(open in new tab) contains Nigerian Broadcasting commisions logo
It has a rather lengthy name ,hence the designer decided to use an emblem/innitial in the design to form NBC ,Notice the colors combination and tagline placement(some companies like putting their motto underneath their logos,it's not always applicable)

So in essence monograms,abbreviations are better off and easy to identify when the company name is long e.g NASA versus the National Aeronautics and Space Administration? UBA ,NLC etc
you may decide to twist the fonts(you will learn how to do that later) so it does'nt stay ordinary even though you dey use innitial(plain english don tire me grin) .

check NASA LOGO, check NBC logo ,check VISA logo


Symbols or icons/mascotte (Apple icon comes to mind)
The biggest thing to consider when deciding to go with a pictorial mark is what image to choose. This is something that will stick with your company its entire existence. You need to think about the broader implications of the image you choose so as to reflect a deeper meaning...you need to be creative about this one..

check twitter logo....Perhaps there is a bird that sings by tweeting,that mught have being the designers thought

check KFC ...the icon of the owner

check firstbank logo ... I don't know why they've used elephant icon sha

Apple - apple icon is obvious

dangote , guiness all have icons with deeper meaning....If you are creative enough, you can form one for your next client

but while we have complex icons...we can have simple and creative icons with great meaning s attached...each...UBA ,QUICKTELLER

It depends on creativity. Please note the current trend is driving towards simplicity and classiness, so don't stress to much looking for complex icons.

I will leave you to do more research(This is just a guide)

What makes up a logo,(shapes,topography,trends etc)

What really makes a logo are the shapes and the font used.

These two things can make or mar your design. especially fonts.(I am a font freak, I search for top quality fonts everytime, If its worth it I buy from behance.

I want to show you How logos are built with 4 practical examples from my portfolio.Raw files are gone with my old pc when I was burgled. So I just re-designed 4 of them within now 2hours

I want to practically dismantle the elements of the logo so you can have a clearer understanding of the magic behind them.

Shapes ,Shapes and curves are what makes an iconic logo Once you know how to handle the pencil tool , you can practically form anything you sketched. or reproduce a custom logo you found on creativemarket/graphicsriver even shutterstock. Just save them and retrace. out.


Now Look at the full preview of the 4 logos I just designed.

THE SHAPES THATMAKE UP THE YAK LOGO

The gear was formed using the pencil tool, then the inner curve.

The Y was converted to shape and the lower part was sliced off before inserting it t the gear

Font used -- Gotham Bold

This one is a construction company...So a building icon was used....Not so obvious but detailed...

You can see the shapes that makes it up


So shapes Shapes Shapes ...How to form shapes and manipulated fonts is what you need to master in logo design. The colors and gradients are easy hurdles to cross once you master the act of creating any form of shapes using the pencil.skew and slice tools

Nice job op. But I'll love to chip in something. It's a suggestion anyways. Why not make a video tutorial using these pc screen recorder for this tutorial? I feel it'll make everyone follow each step to design a logo/banner etc more carefully... The writings are appreciated as well, I just feel a video would be more helpful. As we all would see a step by step way of designing an attractive logo.

Thanks you... Cc bestspoke

When we get to the practical aspect...you'll see how it works in a video

Just pay attention to this introductory part..It is also useful...especially for those who will see this post in the future.

It is a 7 days Tutorial...you know we cannot complete everything in one day
