This tutorial will provide you with the basics to create your own 3D Logo.


Step 1:  Open a new document.  Create a new layer.  Go to Shape Tool and select custom shape tool.  From the dropdown menu, select the shape of your choice (more shapes can be loaded by clicking on the dropdown arrow and selecting Load Shapes).  For this example, I chose a Shamrock.





Step 2:  Go to Layer/Rasterise/Rasterise Shape.  Widen the shape as far as you can on the base using the perspective tool, then scale accordingly. 





Step 3:  Double-click on the layer to bring up layer styles dialog box.  Click bevel & emboss (at this point you can experiment with pattern or gradient overlays etc to make for a more sophisticated looking  logo).


Step 4:  Holding down the Alt+Shift Key, use the up arrow to duplicate and move the shape up - 4 - 6 times (your preference).  When you are happy with what you have, turn off the eye to the background layer and merge all the shape layers.





Step 5:  Now you are ready to add your text.  Select the Text Tool and and type in the name to be assigned to your logo.  (Remember if you want to use any patterns or gradients on the text, you should select a chunky text).  You also need to rasterise your text layer to use the perspective tool.

At this point you need to decide whether you want to leave your text as is or following the same procedures we did for the shape part above.  You also need to near in mind how small you want your logo to be (a lot of text does not size and remain clearly visible).  Here are a couple of variations among the many possibilities!




Have fun experimenting!  Luv & Light - Dreamcatcher.
