I want to start building a portfolio to do some freelance graphic design.
1. This sounds like a really silly question to me, but can I start out only doing logos? I want to do something I'm comfortable with and my skills aren't where I want them for illustrations.
2. How do I build a logo portfolio? I know I need to create spec logos, and the first step I can think of is to make up a bunch of businesses from a variety of industries and start sketching ideas. Is this the way to go or am I missing something?
