Learn how to create a simple yet vibrant logo using the unique capabilities of Adobe Fresco and Adobe Photoshop.

Fresco can help you achieve realistic visual effects, which are beyond the effects created using conventional approaches of creating a logo. You can use Fresco to create effects with watercolor or oil live brushes. Use a large collection of pixel brushes to add textures, depths and highlights, and to give a human touch to the logo.
