We asked talented designers from around the world to identify logos that they love to hate! In this episode, we review Alissa Metsnik’s unofficial redesign of the Skill Share company logo.
Should the refined, classic logo remain untouched or could it use an updated makeover? Let’s check out Alissa’s research and process to see why she thinks Skill Share can step it up!
This unofficial logo redesign project and video is made for educational purposes. The Futur is not affiliated or sponsored by Skill Share.
