Use Photoshop to create this space inspired metal text effect that you can use as a logo ideea. This photoshop tutorial is a bit difficult but I bet the result is worth going through the whole process.
Start of with a new document sized 600×600. Grab the gradient tool with the settings below and with black to dark blue colours and go from middle to right to achieve a result like the one below:
Go to Filter-Noise-Add noise… add a 2% uniform monochromatic.
Add your text. We are using Planet Kosmos (click to download it). Use a very light gray.
I have written Gravity Park on two layers to arrange them how I want.
Add the following layer styles:
Bevel and Emboss:
This is the result:
Create a new layer and create 2 shapes like the one below with a darker gray:
Add the same layer styles that you used on the text:
I used the Poligonal Lasso Tool to chop the shapes a bit.
Let`s add some metal texture to our text and shapes. I found a free texture Here . Open it in your document.
This step is a little difficult.
You have to select the metal texture. Once selected with your mouse hold CTRL and Mouse click on the Gravity layer thumb.
So you should have a selection of the Gravity text on the metal texture layer.
Now right click the selection and choose : Select Inverse and CTRL+X to cut it. You should have the texture apear only over the Gravity text.
Set texture layer blending to Soft Light.
Open the texture file again in the document and repeat Step 6. for all the text and shapes. This is what you should have:
This is another difficult Step( You can always ask in the comments area for explanations when you get stuck)
Go to the layers panel on the Left Shape layer. CTRL+Click on the thumb of that layer to select it. Then create another new layer under all the layers excepting the background one. Like below:
Then go to Select-Modify-Expand-8 pixels.
Fill the selection with a lighter blue colour:
Repeat the step
for all the layers:
Cover the holes:
You are finished. Use a soft white brush to add some shine to it and you are done:
