Project Description

Craft Your Very Own Brushpen Signature Style Logo.

3a9385f5

Creating beautiful hand drawn type is a great skill asset to have for any graphic designer that wants to focus in the area of logo design or typography.

This assignment teaches you my process of how I create a brushpen signature style logo. There are many stages to this process and it would be great to see people posting their attempts through these stages:

• Breaking out your cursive handwriting

• Practicing Drills

• Tool demos (writing minimum)

• Pencil writing your logo

• Pencil sketching your logo

• Brushpen writing your logo

• Finished & refined composition

• Finished vector logo

I will run through all of these stages and give plenty tips along the way, finishing off with tips to create silky sexy smooth curves on the computer in Illustrator.

Enjoy!!
