Learn how to use the pentool, and sketch it out on paper first. That's how I usually do them

Start practicing, use references off google and take inspiration off other designers

Why are you using Illustrator if you can't draw? That's literally how you make logos unless you steal a design off the internet.

Not being rude, but idc what you have to say. I literally have no respect for you as all you do is downgrade all the designers on here.

Motto: Do What You Can't
If you don't want to learn how to use the pen tool right away,
I don't blame you, it can be very overwhelming at first.
The way I learned illustrator was to draw with shapes.
Everyday my class had to find a picture of something on the internet.
Then we had to try to replicate it only using the shape tools.
Honestly I think this is easier than using the pen tool,
because you can easily make complex shapes by combining basic shapes.

Here is a tutorial that I love to reference a lot.
It explains how to combine paths to make cool shapes that you couldn't make normally.

If you've read any books regarding branding, and logo designing you'll notice many believe being a good drawer isn't a requirement for being a logo designer. Several of the most creative logos aren't fancy illustrations.

To the OP: If you have the money, I'd recommend a site called DigitalTutors. You may be able to find some videos on a particular bay. There's a book by Von Glitzka (maybe misspelled) that I liked. If you PM me, I can take some time to look through some resources in my notebook when I get home. I'll probably forget if you dont.
