About This Class

In this set of classes I will teach you my process of how to create your very own brushpen signature style logo.

I'll run through my tools and show you how to use them. I'll teach you a few helpful practicing techniques to get you familiar with using a brushpen and building muscle memory. I have a few tips for all the lefty's out there too (who said we can't wield a brushpen?). And for all of those that don't have a brushpen or don't know how to get desirable results... Never fear! All you need is a 2H led pencil and some paper. So there's a class dedicated to crafting a brushpen style logo without the brushpens in sight.

Following on from there I will demonstrate my methods in repeatition and how building muscle memory helps you build on previous attempts. I'll teach you to explore ligatures and how to identify motifs. We'll make the perfect composition and finally we'll take our sketches and bring them to the computer for the equally important vectoring stage. This is where I will share  with you all my tips on how to create super sexy smooth curves with the pen tool in Illustrator. 

In a nutshell this class will give you an insight into my process and teach you all the tricks of the trade I have learnt to build your own unique signature style logo.

I hope you enjoy!
