Top-Pick Tutorials: Logo Design – Creation and Process

July 9th, 2010 Posted in Graphics, Photoshop, Tutorials

The art of logo design can be hard to master. In this collection I’ve gathered a great collection of logo tutorials for any designer to practice with. The effects you learn here can give you a lot of inspiration, not only for the logo of your business, product or website – but also for other design elements you want to stand out with a professional look.

What can also be helpful, is the fact that several of these tutorials give you some more info than just the specific design. They tell you about the process itself, and can give some valuable input on how to approach this kind of task.

Unless you’re a graphic designer yourself – I’d recommend that you get a professional to do the design. This way you’re most likely to get a high quality logo that will last.
Either way, these tutorials are great for practicing your Photoshop and Illustrator skills. We also have some tutorials in here that use other software for those who want to try that too! I hope you will find some useful new tricks and techniques here.
