ASSIGNMENT

To get started, you can use a restaurant, record store, TV show or any other business you love and feel comfortable designing for. By going through this project, you'll learn how to take an intial idea all the way through to a final vectorized logo design.

DELIVERABLE

Post an image of your vectorized logo design. A final project includes:

  • Sketches of your original ideas.
  • The final sketch that you scanned.
