I wanted to say a big thank you for your amazing Branding 101! I’ve taken several great courses at Nicole’s Classes, but this was definitely my favorite one. And guess what? Now that I have a good idea of what my branding is gonna look like, I just feel much more inspired when I work on my clothing! -Michela

In Branding 101, you’ll learn how to design a beautiful, meaningful and effective brand in just 4-weeks. From research to sketches, design rounds to final applications, we’ll teach you the secrets of the process and walk you through the creation of your very own brand. Whether you’re designing a logo of your own or working with a client, this class is packed with essential information you absolutely MUST know.


You’ll focus on big picture brand strategy, the creative process, color and typography selection and will have the opportunity to get instruction and feedback from experts every step of the way.


By the time you’re done, you’ll know how to create a clear creative brief and you’ll walk away with a final logo in multiple ready-to-use formats, a brand style guide and the skills to blast your new graphic identity with the world! Students will also have the opportunity to apply their completed brand to their choice of print or web related projects.
