How would you become a logo desiger or describe what that career does? What would you need to have as in education wise.
I am interested in being a logo designer in the field of graphic design. #graphic-design #logo-design
It is excellent that you know what kind of designer you want to be. Being a logo/brand designer is like a two-way street with clients, you meet clients, discuss what the client want and what they envision, then you come up with the design with your interpretation.
It depends on the education wise, you can either to a 4 year university where you can find a graphic design degree but you won't focus on one aspect of design, you will learn the basics of design then after the initial two years, you will focus your emphasis on one aspect of design. Or you can try and find a community college that offers classes that teaches you design, find the right professor and which teaches the one you want.
As far as education, one should get a graphic design oriented degree (could also be called Communication Design, Visual Communications, or other name). As a designer one is probably not going to work solely on logos unless they're in one of those online operations that cranks out cheap, fast work which I'm guessing might not be a good area to go in to. A broad design education is a good thing.
In addition to working towards a degree, one can always just start doing work. Doing work for small local businesses, family and friends in business, flyers and posters for bands and other performance, materials for school groups--there's just so many ways to start. Look around for areas where a designer could contribute that aren't currently being filled.
The education is there and is recommended for one to learn what's expected of them in the industry, but it's not required for one to get started. It's good to be doing both school and work early on.
A logo designer usually meets with clients, listens to what the client has to say about their company and why are they investing into a new logo, what this new logo needs to deliver on. The designer's job is the bring out the client's vision in a skilled manner. So you would work with some constraints and a structure not only on your own artistic/ design merit.
You can major in design in a four year collage or go to a community college (one that has a graphic design program) or take classes at an arts school such as the Art Institute for example.
