Constructing Glyphs for Logos by Hand in Illustrator

Visit Tutorial Page ( Report)
The perfect course for designers and artists who already have some basic knowledge of Adobe Illustrator, and are called upon to recreate a vector retro logo from nothing but a scan because the font that made up the original logo is either non-existent or unfindable in the timeframe that is given. In this course, we cover how Adobe Illustrator can help you recreate vector logo art and, by the end, you'll be able to use these techniques on any similar logo project you have in mind for use in 3D mapping, 3D extrusion, websites, apps, or print. Software required: Creative Cloud 2015, Illustrator CC, Photoshop CC.
