  • What program could I use to create a logo in this style?

    I've attached a photo of a logo that is similar to the logo I'm trying to make. I'm wondering what program(s) would be good for making this type of logo and what technique is used. Also, can someone tell me what the effect seen in this typography is that makes it look like you're looking up at it from slightly below it?

    Adobe Illustrator would be my first choice. As for a technique, it's just a matter of skillfully using some of the tools. The effect comes from an understanding of perspective and drawing. There's no filter or button to get you all the way there, though, if that's what you're asking.

      Illustrator is the obvious choice but you have to pretty much do it yourself, as B said, with the understanding of how to do perspective artwork.
      This logo is done in simple 1-point perspective.
      How to video here:

      Don't fall into the trap of using illustrator's 3D filter though. While you might get something close to this, because of the shading you will have a mass of stitching and hidden crap that would be more trouble than it's worth to remove. My recommendation, when using the 3D filter is to turn the light source off so you get the solid shapes with no silly gradient splices, then hand color it yourself.

      On the other hand, the sign-making software I use, does this in a couple of clicks but you don't want to be paying over $1500 for that...

      BTW, gradients in logos are bad form.

        Thanks for the tips!

          Adobe Illustrator is fine for this. And Adobe Photoshop any version after 7 will do.

            Photoshop should not be used to create logos.
            Just. No.

              Sorry Penny27, that's not good advice. Other than for special purposes of one sort or another, logos should always be built in a scalable vector format, not a resolution-dependent raster format.

                  You can create it using Adobe photoshop or illustrator. Also check few online logo making tools. You may find this text format in one of the online tools.

                        I see what you are saying. But those image editor images can be polished to better version using Photoshop.

                          Uhhmm...Photoshop IS a raster image editor.

                        it was only a matter of time before online logo-making tools was mentioned. LOL.
                        Again.
                        Just. NO.
                        Especially if the output is a raster file, like a lot of them are.
                        Useless.

                        Now it makes me wonder how many of the crowdsourced logos are created daily with online logo generators.

                          I don't think you do see what HotButton was saying.

                          Using Photoshop to tweak, polish or fancy up a logo is just fine if doing so is for a specific purpose, like an online banner or a video or for making a fancy version of the logo for a particular purpose at a specific resolution.

                          For most every other purpose, though, Photoshop is absolutely not the right tool, and is rarely, if ever, the right tool for the original logo design and creation. A logo designed and built in Photoshop will cause nothing but expensive problems and impose serious limitations for its owner going forward.

                          For example, you can't enlarge a Photoshop-built logo without it losing resolution, the edges will never be sharp because of anti-aliasing issues. the logos will never take advantage of the high output resolutions from digital printing or plate and imagesetters, the logos can't be separated into spot colors, the logos will create all kinds of problems when needing to be used to cut vinyl, etch glass, be embroidered on clothing, run as black and white (not grayscale), screen printed onto t-shirts, embossed or foil stamped onto letterhead and business cards, etc.

                            It won't just create problems, None of that can be done with a Photoshop file. At least not without some serious set up time or if the logo happens to be a vector smart object for some bizarre reason.
                            You should check sometime what printers charge for desktop system time to fix that stuff.
                            Let's just put it this way, the hourly rate is often more than some people pay for their logos on popular crowdsouce sites.
