Learn how to conceptualize and create graphic elements to give personality to your brand

So you’ve got a logo. Now what? Brands are like people, with a voice, character, and their own ideals; they interact and express themselves through diverse points of contact, and a logo is just the tip of the iceberg.

In this course, Lane Cope and Sofía Vargas—creative directors and founders of Heavy, as well as being true branding buffs—teach you all the tricks to create graphics that accompany your logotype to exploit your brand’s full potential. Using a logo, learn how to design a set of patterns, typographic compositions, labels, and symbols to create a brand that’s flexible, eloquent, powerful, and able to connect emotionally with its target audience.
