By Nicolas Fredrickson
Passionate hand letterer with experience working with major brands like Target.
In this course you'll learn how to create a logo, starting with a standard pencil or an Apple Pencil, and move through the stages necessary to turn your hand lettering into vector artwork. We'll make stops along the way to explore relevant history, terminology, and practical tips to help you improve and gain a deeper appreciation for hand lettering.
too short, nothing exceptional to learn, the guy just went through one example which wasnt that good as he was designer and client himself .. i think this course is not worthy
good, But I thought it would be more interesting. To be honest the the videos were a bit monotonous. and hardly found anything special or new compared to the regular handlettering and vector tracing tutorials available in the youtube.
Excellent! TY for the great workflow and this course.
Thanks to learn from fiverr and boost my gig...more mony....... good experincee...
It was a good course with a piece of good quality information! Recommend it!
Awesome course, interactive and fun for learning or sharpening your already established skills, perfecting your design process and workflow! That being said, i recommend this course to begginers but also to intermediate or professional logo designers because you will definitely learn something useful from this course!
I like the course in overall. Nicolas is great teacher. I just think some of the videos are unnecessary long and could have been fast forward a bit.
In overall an amazing and significant experience!
It would be great if there was a little more theory about typography, how do certain letters interact and connect and similar things. Regardless, this is a great course, I learned a lot and it inspired me to practice hand lettering more.
Helpful. But it's only for beginner.
It's not for those who already provide service and want to gain more experience or learn something more.
Great Course. It compliments the other fiverr learn courses very well. I wish I had started on this one before moving on to more advanced courses. I learnt alot.
Easy to learn. Show everything steps by step. I learn a lot from this course. This course will help me to raise my sells.
Amazing Course. Nicolas was very easy for the process. He showed and talked about a lot of aspects that very essential. A great value of money. Highly appreciate & recommend "Craft A Logo By Hand" course for all levels of sellers. Thank you.
Excellent Teacher! He is easy to understand and follow. Excellent Tips! I strongly feel I learned a lot that can help me build my fiver gigs.
I have learned a lot from this class, I used to make mistakes "when typing logo Terminology" I learned more on design principles and to use my Pen Tool, the classes are really interesting, I wish I can get the copies of the videos, I recommend this courses to anybody who wants to learn more about Crafting a logo by hand, thanks to Fiverr
I don't know why It's important to show clients your concept sketches. Presenting should be go after execution and mockup. Do not show your sketches because the client doesn't know how the final logo will look like. I learned about this term from my favourite instructor Von Glitschka.
As I completed the class, I definitely recommend this course to newbies who interested in learning more about how to craft a logo by hand. I might be able to say something about the class. It is very well organised class; especially there is a special course for the tools and Roughs but I prefer him to speak slowly and clearly. Thank you very much Nicolas Fredrickson
I learnt from this course more than my expectations. Great Learning Experience. thank you fiverr for giving this opportunity.
The course is very easy to follow and you will surely learn a few new things even though you are an experienced logo designer .
Great course! The instructor conveyed his message in a clear and straightforward way. It was easy to follow and being able to see his screen while he was working made it extremely simple to follow his steps and thought process.
The quiz was a great tool to see what I had missed or not remembered and helped me go back and watch a specific chapter again.
I definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in learning more about how to craft a logo by hand by an awesome instructor!
Thank your Fiverr for help to learn the professional course.
The course that helps basic designers and enriches professional designers. Videos explained well and directed to the point. Recommended to anyone who gives importance to handmade and typography.
Easy to understand and follow along with. Crafted an awesome logo myself within a few hours of starting this course.
worth the money i paid for this course. definitely learn a lot from it . thank you
It starts a bit slow, but I learned a lot! Loved the details and shared tricks! Thank you.
I have so many GREAT things to say about this course!! Right off the bat, it is a FULL in depth course from start to finish. I love that we learn the history of terms, and get a good background so we can appreciate and understand our subject. We learn how to formally set up a plan with the client. All the way to the end where we learn what files to use, and send it off to the client. Brilliant and thorough! The only reason I couldn't give 5 starts (as much as I want to- I wish there were categories but we are doing overall) is because the course says we don't need programs, and while that may technically be true, you really can't get anywhere near the full value without them. I have Procreate and Corel Painter 6 so I figured I could follow along. But Painter is nothing like Adobe software, and I don't want to invest until I learn more about digital creative content. He is clearly an expert which is great, but as a beginner I was a little lost towards the end especially with the vectoring. I still think it's a great course. I can maybe come back to it in the future as a learn more and get more software. Maybe include an option w/o Adobe? I think I can still do this but I'd have to do the details totally by hand with the pencil. Overall, he put a lot of effort and detail into the course and I learned a lot nonetheless! To the person who said we "ONLY did one logo" I just have to say, what?! That "one" logo was the majority of the course and took forever (In a good way- it was in real time, step by step) it was more than thorough enough to only need one to understand how to create one. Thank you for the course! Would recommend.
This Craft A Logo By Hand course is very useful for lettering artists, the "Concepts Roughs" contains a very valuable information, thanks for this product bro!.
As a suggestion: my first language is spanish, so the videos should have subtitles in english or other languages for a better understanding
I really enjoy this class, is really impressive how the artist goes from one idea sketch into a final result! Highly recommend taking Fiverr lessons, a great asset for any gig.
Very helpful even for professionals! Great stuff, thanks
I enjoyed this course. Thanks a lot #fiverr
I have been a logo designer for about 8 years now. I knew most of the concepts he talked about. But I learned many new things as well. It was a well-scripted course. Hoping to design better logo's to my clients using things I learned from this.
Just Awesome. I have learned many impotent things. Thanks to fiverr team and Nicolas Fredrickson.
Very Important For every Brand or Logo Designer
Really this is Great Experience. I learned a lot.
It was an amazing course and I learn a lot of important things.
Great course, would love to see more of logo courses. There's so much to learn even tho I've a good years of experience still feel there's a lot to learn with the new modern of design.
Simple course, but helps who are starting.
excellent course many new things and tips i learn from this course
Amazing, learned many new things.Great course. Well explained and put together. Thank you.
This course will be definitely good for the beginners with no experience in design but for an experienced designer not much to learn.
Really cool and useful course! Thank you!
wow really Great, I enjoyed it a lot.
Just wow!! I've learned so many things which I didn't know earlier about typography design.
Cool and great! Nice tutorials.
We good and detailed lessons for beginners to intermediate level designers.

It was a great course learning the hand drawn logo techniques and the process. It almost included all the stages to create a stunning logo. Thank you
Great to learn the way of thinking, making and crafting a logo.
Outstanding Course. It's really helpful for me.
This course was pretty disappointing now that I am looking at the other courses. I felt that it was too basic and would not fly for clients on Fiverr. I wish I picked another course.
This course is very helpful for new seller.
Would love to see part2
Fantastic course that gives you a great advantage!
It was an amazing course and I learn a lot of important things. The tutor was excellent and easy to learn from him. I also enjoyed the examination.
Very informative course learned a lot.
Nice guy, nice course. Thank you.
Great Design Process! I think it would be very helpful if the courses have a transcript like Lynda.com.
Great learning experience. Truly deserves 5 stars!
This course is absolutely amazing.
Ok for beginner. Too short and simple.
Thank You So Much Very Helpful
Very Inspiring, I love the creativity.
Awesome! I got the pieces of information I needed
Wonderful video. Learned a lot!
Nice one! Learnt something but it is a little more tilted to the beginner's side.
Great Instructor, needs some production work to align the instructions with the on-screen actions.
I personally think, there should be more in this course. Only a single logo was done in the whole course. This can be improved by adding some more techniques and design skills.
Excellent. Learnt many new things...
It was good.
Really enjoyed the course and gained a lot of knowledge I know I'll be able to use again!
It was good but only for beginners. I didn't get much out of it.
Really helpful, Thanks !!!
