Create a simple logo.



Today we will discuss some of the simple tricks to create a logo as follows

http://www.go4expert.com/images/arti...go/img-src.gif

Follow the following steps

1. Create a blank image of size 1 inch x 1 inch. Make sure you keep the background as transparent.

2. Select the Type Tool and type the character you wanted to make the logo with. I have chosen the character "i".

3. Make the font size such that it occupies the 60% of the image canvas. For e.g. it should be Font "Times New Roman, 60, Italics, Strong"

4. Apply the Drop Shadow, Bevel and Emboss and stroke with the following specification.
a) Drop Shadow -
Blend Mode - Multiply
Color - Black
Opacity - 45%
Distance - 0 px
Spread - 5 %
Size - 10 px
b) Bevel and Emboss -
There is no editing and all the default for the bevel and emboss would be fine.
c) Stroke - 3 px, Outside, and choose the color of the shadow to be closer to gray. I have opted in the above sample as #E6E6E6.
5. Add a new layer and draw an eclipse with the Ellipse tool. The color can be anything of the ellipse as we will be applying the effects on the ellipse in the next couple of steps.

6. Change the foreground color to the orange (FF7D00) and background to be yellow (FFF900)

7. Select the Gradient Overlay (Reverse) on the newly created layer with blend mode as Normal.

That's it you have the logo ready. Attachment contains the .psd file for the above logo.

I prefer to see simple company logos for Web sites. Animated logos are very eye-catching, and Flash logos are lovely and smooth flowing. However, if I pop into your site often to check your merchandise, it annoys me to wait while your animated logo loads or your Flash presentation finishes before I can click on and BUY your merchandise. Keep it simple or give me the opportunity to by-pass your Flash and animated logos.

i have always seen the best logos as being simple. Don't try to complicate things to much when designing one, usually the simplest are the best
