What will be the final product?
In this post I am sharing a beautiful tutorial on how to create a Micromax Logo (redesigned a little bit by me). Micromax is an Indian brand present in fourteen countries including Bangladesh, Sri-Lanka, Brazil, Nepal and Hong Kong. Micromax already has a nice logo, but I’ve just made it little bit creative. And today I am going to share with you that how I created this Micromax logo in Photoshop CS6. So let’s get on the tutorial.
Create a new document in Photoshop with dimensions 700 by 500 in pixels as shown in following figure. The background must be white (in my case its default). Then move to step 2.
Select Pen tool from the tools in the left pane and draw a wireframe (or you can say skeleton) of three bended fingers as shown in the figure using the pen tool which is an awesome tool for drawing elements in Photoshop CS6. Then move to step 3.
Then in this step create fourth bended finger’s wireframe as shown in the figure below using the same pen tool. Then move to step 4.
In fourth step create a wireframe of thumb which looks like a small potato too, again using pen tool.
In step 5 create an awesome fist shape according to the fingers you created in above steps again using pen tool. Then move to step 6.
Then in this step coloring of the elements starts. Firstly start with the fingers. Fill in white color inside all fingers including the thumb. And move to step 7.
In Photoshop CS6 the positions of layer style options have some changes like stroke came upwards and drop shadow to downwards as compared to Photoshop CS3. Check the bevel and emboss option with the settings shown in following figure. Then check gradient overlay and drop shadow options and move to next step.
In this step configure the drop shadow option as shown in below figure.
In the ninth step configure the gradient colors in gradient editor as shown below.
Now we’re done with the fist and let’s proceed to remaining design. Type the word “cromax”, after the fist you just designed, using text properties as shown in below figure. I’ve used the “Dimitri Swank” font for this purpose. Then proceed to next step.
In this step write the tagline of Micromax which is “nothing like anything” using following text properties and align it with above text (i.e. “cromax”).
So you’ve just created an awesome looking Micromax logo in Photoshop very easily in just 11 steps. If you liked this post then why not share it. Thank you for reading and stay connected. See ya!
