About This Class
Following on from Part 1 of this series of classes, this class will help you design your brand logo in 7 easy to follow steps.
Part 1 of Branding Your Creative Business helped us define exactly what our brands were all about, our target market and how to position yourself in your industry. In this class, we will carry all that forward to help you design a logo which will form part of your visual identity.
Designing your own logo is a tough job as it's so personal and deep down we are probably all perfectionists. This class will help you get focused and start moving your brand forward in terms of the visual identity.
This class will be aimed at people running creative businesses - such as photographers, craft makers, pattern designers, bakers - people who are talented in their field but feel overwhelmed by branding and designing their logo.

One of the best break downs on how to design your logo that I've found on skill share.
This class helped me to clarify my business goals and message. This series is a very nice and thorough review of the branding process. Also good for graphic designers who have to guide their clients through the same.
Faye was an enormous help for my project. I had many things done before I took this course but needed guidance and a clear vision of where to go. She, through several steps takes you to finish your project. Even though the work is mainly done by us, she helps along the way as a personal coach. I was in such need of something more specific and one on one communication. I still have to do some scratches but now I have a clear understanding of what I am sound. Now, after taking her classes and getting on going feedback I have the whole picture, you know? What ever I do next, I have a clear reason to do it. She gave me a clearer picture of where to go as my final goal. I like that she does not impose her style but helps you do more and think clearer. But her input is very sharp and just in time! Thank you Faye! I enjoy this class so much. I can say it has been one of the most productive ones. Not to say that others have not been good. As a matter of fact, in this project I used around 3 of my already taken classes. It was a unity of knowledge from several skill share classes. But this one help me big time! I think it is specially because it is a project for me which makes it even more difficult and foggy. But that is gone! I know what to do next. Faye walked me thru to see the whole picture. Now, whatever I plan to make Next will be easier because I have the big picture.
