About This Class

When we set in to create a logo icon we are always reaching for the most dynamic and visually stunning solution. One method to consider is studying different aspects of how light and shadows come into play. If you are a designer looking for methods to create dynamic and visually stunning icons join me! 


Key lessons include:

  • Process of reference study and style
  • Sketch icon based on light source
  • Sketching icon based on light values
  • Refinement process
  • Executing your logo icon in Adobe Illustrator

85% of this class is about the process on paper with a good chunk in one video covering my vector process of finalizing. Do not be intimidated if you are new to Adobe Illustrator
