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.
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.
It starts a bit slow, but I learned a lot! Loved the details and shared tricks! Thank you.
The course is right to the point. Unfortunately only 1 sample of lettering is explored. The vector section should be updated. But overall good course
Very informative course learned a lot.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
Really enjoyed the course and gained a lot of knowledge I know I'll be able to use again!
Great to learn the way of thinking, making and crafting a logo.
Just wow!! I've learned so many things which I didn't know earlier about typography design.
Thank your Fiverr for help to learn the professional course.
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.
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
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
Excellent. Learnt many new things...
Great learning experience. Truly deserves 5 stars!
It was an awesome learning. Thanks very much for re-polishing my skill.
Awesome! I got the pieces of information I needed
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.
Easy to understand and follow along with. Crafted an awesome logo myself within a few hours of starting this course.
I thought we would learn more about calligraphy and as it says in the tittle I thought we would learn more hand writing styles and practice some techniques in paper by hand.
This course is only possible if you have already a great calligraphy background. I would love this course if was given to us exercises on how to write in different styles, like a pdf with alphabet so we could track our hand writing has he says he did to improve his skills.
I would name this course "How to vector a logo created in Procreate" .
But really love to learn new skills and I really want to explore more with new courses.
Wonderful video. Learned a lot!
worth the money i paid for this course.
Fantastic course that gives you a great advantage!
Good content, good course!
Really Great TUT...i am happy to learn with this instructor
Outstanding Course. It's really helpful for me.
Really helpful, Thanks !!!
Amazing course, thanks
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.
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.
Awesome Course! i Learnt many important things which can help me in increase my skills.. Teaching style are very nice and conveyable. Thanks GD
Very Important For every Brand or Logo Designer
Thanks to learn from fiverr and boost my gig...more mony....... good experincee...
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.
It was a good course with a piece of good quality information! Recommend it!
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.
The best course for the one's who really wants to learn logo design and typography also vector tracing, I learn a lot of stuff from this course I highly recommend this course.
Mr. Nicolas Fredrickson
Your lesson is very good....wonderful
Awesome course, learned a lot here!
Great Course, Will definitely learn a lot from it
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.
This course is very helpful for new seller.
Easy to learn. Show everything steps by step. I learn a lot from this course. This course will help me to raise my sells.
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.
This course is absolutely amazing.
Very helpful even for professionals! Great stuff, thanks
It is really great to see some professional creating logo
Nice guy, Great course. Thank you.
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.
Was very enjoyable!!
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!
Great Design Process! I think it would be very helpful if the courses have a transcript like Lynda.com.
A great course that shows a lot through a practical example.
It was good
Ok for beginner. Too short and simple.
Great course! I really enjoy this class, I've been working on the logo design for a long time, through this course I learned new things, Hopefully, I can share my clients with better concepts.
In general this course even for professionals gives a lot of usefull information. I enjoyed it a lot !
Suggested only for very beginers...
The course is very easy to follow and you will surely learn a few new things even though you are an experienced logo designer .
little too basic
