One of the best and most useful classes!
Really good step by step process. Ewan has given me the confidence to take my simple sketches and transform them to a logo.

This is a great introductions to illustrator as a tool for designing logos. I've learn't many new tips in watching this course; achieving what I have in my head and putting it onto the screen. The videos are quick and on to point with the examples of what you can do with the program. Highly recommended for people starting out and also vets who need a quick crash course on some of the illustrator functions.
Enjoyed the class and it gave me a good foundation for working with type in Illustrator. I'm just starting to learn Illustrator and just want to be able to manipulate type - this fit the bill. Thanks!
Nice introduction to the typography!
