LOGO CREATION PROCESS
My steps in creating a logo are pretty typical of professional designers, and each step in the process has its own important purpose.
Step 1 is to gather information from the client and work up some quick sketch ideas. From these scribbles, I focus on a few of the best ideas.
Step 2 is working up some refined logo ideas based off of my rough sketches, and presenting some options to choose from.
Step 3 involves continued refinement of the favored logo idea. This step may involve playing around with different fonts, color or layout.
And finally, we have a finished logo!
