Reader tinycc6 recently posted an interesting challenge-slash-inquiry on the Core77 discussion boards, writing,
"Is there any way to learn about logo design in one week?
This question reminded us of a helpful video we came across from a few years back via LinkedIn's Learning Solutions YouTube channel. The personality featured in the video is designer Aaron Draplin, founder of Draplin Design Co. In this video, Draplin takes you through a play-by-play scenario of designing a logo for a specific client:
The video is detailed and informative, yet quick enough to get you started with sketching and experimenting by this afternoon.
Curious where to find some of the books he references in the video? Here are some full PDFs of Trade Marks & Symbols by Yasaburo Kawayama, Volume 1 & Volume 2.
Now get to work!
Have any more resources or references that can help people learn more about logo design? Contribute your thoughts in the original discussion board or in the comment thread below!
