Have you wanted to design a t-shirt? A logo? Do you have lots of ideas to make stickers but don’t know where to start?

This three part, three evening workshop will be a casual introduction to the design process from brainstorming, sketches, refining your ideas then producing artwork on an IPad in a scaleable vector format.

Alison Cowitz will guide you through the creation of a simple logo mark for a real or hypothetical brand. This logo mark can be applied in countless ways from stickers to merchandise and will be infinitely scalable, from the size of a pea to a billboard.

Three Week Session: May 1st, May 8th & May 15th
Mondays 6pm - 9pm
Skill Level: Beginner
Ages 19+
Cost: $65

Week 1:
You will start with pencil, sketch pad, tracing paper and a lesson in brainstorming. As a group you will work one by one to flush out each others ideas to the page. Each student’s goal will be to focus on one main idea and their own project for next weeks class.

Week 2:
You will learn the tools and thinking process around building your idea on an IPad using Adobe Fresco. You will start and build the foundations of your idea into a vector graphic.

Week 3:
Let’s get that logo mark finished and ready for proofing and finished artwork. What will your final outcome be? What are the requirements for printing your project?

Expect an hour or two of homework between sessions
