Goodtype is excited to present Creating a Logotype with Will Paterson! A course for those looking to learn more about logo design.

What is a logotype? A logotype, also known as a "word mark" is a brand name styled as a logo.

The workshop will cover how to draw a logotype from scratch. This will include how to come up with new ideas for letterforms as well as how to refine and test the logotype so it stands on its own as a consistent logo.

Join us for an afternoon workshop on January 20th in San Francisco.

Class is limited to 20 participants. Students are welcome to bring a notebook or favorite lettering instrument, but all needed materials will be provided by Goodtype.
