About this course

In this course, you're going to learn all about what it takes to design great wordmarks.

So what is a wordmark? Simply put, it's the type portion of a logo; the business name. All too often, I see aspiring designers place emphasis on the symbol or icon, as opposed to the name. And this is exactly what we're going to correct in this course.

You will follow along as Gary shows you how to tackle 5 different wordmark logo designs, two of which include hand-lettering with the use of a pressure sensitive drawing tablet. You're also invited to tackle optional project assignments, and submit them to the DesignCourse.com forums for Gary's personal review.

So if you're ready to get started, purchase the course!
