About This Class

In this class I will be sharing my process of creating an updated logo design for a sports team. There are many sports team logos that haven't passed the test of time. These logos need an update while maintaining aspects that their fans have grown to love over the years.

I believe creating an updated design needs to involve very careful consideration as these teams have a very loyal fan base! We will learn how to identify key characteristics that should be maintained while making the new logo that is dynamic with an updated style.

For this class I chose to complete a concept update logo design for a minor league baseball team in my home town. The Dayton Dragons. Let's do our best to keep the fans happy!

The Original Dayton Dragons logo used as a visual reference  is Trade Mark of the Dayton Dragons.

Outstanding way to create a sport logo. Whole process is quite easy to understand and implement.
Really well thought out and very clear instructions and hotkey tips. Really appreciate the effort that went into this as vectoring can be tedious and any tips to improve workflow as well as learn efficient techniques is very appreciated. Great work! A whole course on the current sport logo styles would be awesome though this would suffice for now.
Great techniques fro designers of all levels. I have been designing logos for over a decade. I found the approach in this class very helpful. Some of the shape breakdowns were a new technique which will streamline my workflow
