Course Description

Learn how to create a simple, solid, and modern brand mark in this popular logo design class with designer George Bokhua! Each lesson makes it easy and fun to get inspired, learn techniques, and gain skills for designing your next logo.

Knowing how to design a great logo is a core skill in a graphic designer's toolkit. When you think of a business or brand, the first thing that comes to mind is nearly always the logo. It is the visual representation of that product, place, thing, or business. Its impact is huge.

And as for style? The power of simplicity should never be underestimated, as oftentimes simple shapes and colors communicate a stronger message than an over-done image. It creates an immediate impression in a viewer's mind.

Learn how to create a simple, solid, and modern brand mark in this popular logo design class with designer George Bokhua! Each lesson makes it easy and fun to get inspired, learn techniques, and gain skills for designing your next logo.

Knowing how to design a great logo is a core skill in a graphic designer's toolkit. When you think of a business or brand, the first thing that comes to mind is nearly always the logo. It is the visual representation of that product, place, thing, or business. Its impact is huge.

And as for style? The power of simplicity should never be underestimated, as oftentimes simple shapes and colors communicate a stronger message than an over-done image. It creates an immediate impression in a viewer's mind.

Designer George Bokhua works primarily with monochromatic, simple shapes in logo and identity design. This Skillshare class explores that style, so that you can learn how to maximize communication with minimal information.

Throughout the lessons, he creates multiple logos. You'll learn about:

  • Applying a strong, simple, and minimal design aesthetic to logo design
  • Creating simple marks from complex characters, from inspiration and reference to sketching
  • Applying minimalism to typographic logos, from concept and sketch to refining in Adobe Illustrator
  • Creating a negative space mark

Understanding simplification and perception in design are essential to becoming more fluent as a logo designer. This class will give you all the tools you need to spot effective logo design and, most importantly, communicate effectively with your own logos.

Please note that this class is primarily a theoretical approach to logo design. It will challenge your design approach and push your skill in different types of logos. Basic familiarity with Adobe Illustrator is strongly recommended.

This class was fantastic! For someone who is self-taught and who has left the graphic design realm for lack of understanding of the basics of actual concept design, this class was really great for getting those basic skills. I really appreciate his informative videos. Definitely, definitely recommend!

I wasn't a big fan of this class. Perhaps it should be labeled as advanced instead of intermediate. I think he oversimplified the whole process in order to keep the class short. I didn't really get much out of it because it was too fast paced. Also, the final product seems to depend a lot on your sketching ability, whereas I incorrectly thought the final product would depend on your skill level using illustrator. I also would have liked to see him demonstrate more letter marks and more examples in general. I was glad that I did not have to purchase this class individually, I was able to view it based on the Skill- share monthly unlimited plan. I would hesitate to recommend this class to anyone who is a beginner or doesn't know much about logo design already. Just my personal opinion, I'm sure there are others who loved it.

Short & Sweet. George is clear and to the point. I wish he went over the pen tool a bit more in illustrator and spoke more technically about gridding in the program.

This class was incredibly insightful. It validated some of my own practices and helped me to refine my approach. I loved the teacher's diligence and his commitment to the process. The approach is one that any designer can trust and replicate. I would recommend this class to any series about their craft and looking for an opportunity to expand their capacity.

Wasn't so much a "how to" class, but rather an insight into how an artist develops a logo. He stressed the ideas he felt new artists should practice with all projects, which helps with workflow. Like others, hearing an explanation during the grid work would have been nice, but even sped up, that section was 10 minutes. Overall very enjoyable.

This was a great class overall! I loved the projects; they definitely challenged me with their simplicity. I just wish I understood the gridding part. I was a little lost on that. Otherwise, he has a lovely personality and it's a class you shouldn't hesitate to take.

There is a lot more work and time which goes into designing a seemingly simple logo than I had originally believed. I enjoyed the class, especially the accent and music!

I recommend this class if you're young, don't know much about design and are still wet behind the ears. If you're older and a vet in the design world, you might find some of this highly repetitive. Still, I learned some interesting things and enjoyed it although I could have gone all day without the dramatic music.

This class was well thought out, well explained, and well executed. It was simple, yet I learned things that will take my design to the next level. I learned some invaluable skills with a few new techniques that will make my job as the designer really love my work. I'm so eager to get to work!!!

In simple words you sped through the good parts. You should be going into the details a bit more. Explain more about the grid process and how its done. It didn;t feel like much of a class.

One of the best skillshare classes I've taken, It focuses more on the technique than the program so it is a little more advance, I would recommend watching a few illustrator tutorials before jumping into this one, but totally worth the time!

I paid for this class because I really wanted to study the process of this designer. My honest feedback is that advice on mood boards and sketching are easy to find. What really makes these type of designs exceptional are the process he calls "gridding"- which is the arrangement of geometric shapes to produce extremely high quality craftsmanship in the final paths. While I appreciate that the video can be helpful to some designers, I feel shortchanged that the real magic is shown with no explanation at high speed with dramatic music. Please consider actually teaching something about your gridding process. Thank you.

As an illustrator, I wanted to make a clean mark for my digital work, a signature mark. I took this class for that reason and it taught me everything I needed to understand and then some on clean, solid design. Highly recommend it for not only graphics design, but for inspiration on how to come up with your own signature mark. You should have at least a little knowledge of Adobe Illustrator for this class.

Great class in overall but I still think George needs to work on his lessons a bit more. He touched on some very good points in the subject of logo design which are quite important. Very inspiring style of design and I personally love the fact that he emphasized on simplicity the whole time. However, I wish he explained more about his design process and how he comes up with his ideas specially in letter form. Another thing that I wish had more explanation is his Adobe Illustrator techniques in fine tuning and refining the sketch using grids. Having said that, I still think this is a great class if you're already experienced in logo design.
