Logos are a vital aspect of a company and its marketing functions. A logo defines a brand and plays many parts in the role in popularizing a company. This makes a logo an indispensable part of a company that can help attract customers. An attractive logo tends to catch more eyes and hence more popularity. In this article, we shall see how to create a logo in Photoshop.
The steps involved are:
- The first step is to create a new blank document. To do this, press Ctrl + N. Then select the desired width and height of the image according to preference.
- The next step is to create a basic shape in the document. For this, we select the Pen Tool by pressing the P key. Then using the Pen tool, draw the desired shape on a newly created layer named Layer-1 and after that select the color of the fill to be used for the shape.
- Then we layer the logo to refine it. For this create a new layer by pressing Ctrl + Shift + N and rename it as Layer-2. Now go to the Layer 1 and press Ctrl + A to select all and then press Ctrl + C to copy the shape and then go to the Layer-2 and press Ctrl + V to paste the shape. After that press Ctrl + t to transform the copied shape. Then click on Select>Load Selection and then fill the shape with a lighter color using the Paint Bucket Tool.
- Then repeat the step-3 to create more layers of the logo and similarly fill them with colors for a better look. And now we are done with the process of creating a good logo.
Thus we have created a good logo using Photoshop. If we look closely, we will find that the process is the same as that of creating a simple text logo and hence with practice the process is bound to become easier for beginners as well.
