In this tutorial, we will learn to create a logo for a media company.
Create a new file of your choice. Fill the background with black. Select type tool and type ‘m’ with these settings:
Font name = Times New Roman
Font size = 100 points
Font color = #00C0FF
Duplicate the type layer by pressing control+j and change the color to white.
Duplicate the layer again. This time, change the text color to #006485.
Hide the last type layer by clicking on the eye icon.
Click on the middle or white colored type layer to activate it. Press ‘alt’ key and click on the point shown by the arrow. It will create a clipping mask.
Now, click on the move tool and press the up arrow key from the keyboard to move the white colored ‘m’ type layer 16 pixel upward.
Click on the empty box in the 3rd type layer to show it.
Press alt key and click on the middle layer to make the clipping mask.
Now move the third type layer 3 pixel right side.
Using the same technique, draw a circle, duplicate it two times, make clipping mask and adjust the layers to have a shape like shown in the figure.
Group and merge the text and circle layer. Press control+j to duplicate the layer. Press control+t and transform the layer as shown.
Change the layer opacity of duplicate layer to 28%. You will see a nice reflection of the shape.
Draw a light grey colored circle between the two layers.
Type “Media Group” and change the text color to #006485.
Duplicate the type layer. Change its color to white and press down arrow key once to add white color shade to the text. Our logo is ready.
