Hi everyone, my name is Gary Simon, welcome to my course, Design a Tech Logo That Stands Out. I've been a freelance designer for the last 15 years and I've worked with countless clients on a wide variety of projects.

Designing tech-based logos can be quite challenging due to the abstract nature of technology. On one hand you want to avoid designing a logo that looks like every other tech-based logos out there, but on the other, you're left with how to creatively and uniquely depict what your business is about.

And that's what this course is going to remedy. You're going to learn how to design unique, relevant and effective tech-based logos.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Effective technology logo practices
  • Tech Trends to Avoid
  • Logo Do's and Dont's
  • Visualizing Ideas through Design
By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of how to create your very own effective tech logos.

I hope you'll join me on this journey to Designing a Tech Logo That Stands Out at pluralsight.
