Project Description

Create or improve a logo of your own!

Choose a real-world logo or pick a piece of your past work you'd like to improve. Using the downloadable checklist, go through each element of the piece in order to identify inconsistencies and areas for improvement. Don't forget to start with the big picture to establish the overall look and feel you're going for first, before diving into the details of individual letterforms. 

Share your process in the project gallery! We'd love to see initial images of your work or the original logo, any notes you make on how it could be improved, along with sketches and your final piece.
