About This Class

Make a strong (and original) sports wordmark! In this class, you'll learn a process for taking your ideas from the sketchbook to a finished design in Illustrator. Work with letters and shapes to craft a wordmark that supports any sports branding package, and add dynamic elements to make it pop. If you're looking for a fresh way to make your mark -- whether you're an illustrator, graphic artist, or just someone interested in learning a new process -- this is the class for you.
