Hi. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV.
I'm going to show you how to create an
origami, folded paper, text
logo using a great-looking font called,
"Origram" designed by Nuno Dias.
I provided its link in the video
description of project files.
I provided a Photoshop file that
includes this image
created by Nuno, which shows how each
character should be rendered to simulate
the folds within them.
You can reference them when you're ready
to create the folds for your text.
Once you install "Origram",
open your Horizontal Type Tool
and open the font.
If you're not sure how to install fonts,
watch my tutorial showing how to do it.
I provided that link,
as well. I'll make this size 250 points,
Sharp and Center Alignment.
Click on the color box
and pick a color
that's not too light, nor too dark.
I'm picking 5 9 8 9 F 7.
Once you pick your color, click OK
or press Enter or Return. Type out your text.
To increase or decrease the overall
space between the characters,
highlight the line and go to
Window and Character. The Character panel
will open. Go to the Tracking icon
and drag it to the right
or left. I'll set it
at Zero. To adjust the space between just
place your cursor between them
and press and hold
Alt or Option as you press the right or left
arrow keys on your keyboard.
To reposition your text
open your Move Tool and move it.
Temporarily close the Character panel by
clicking on this icon
Go to Layer, Rasterize
and Type. Click on the thumbnail of the
Samples layer to make the layer active.
Since "Z" is the first letter of my logo,
I'll drag the "Z" sample next to it. Press
"D" on your keyboard to make the
foreground and background colors
default to black and white, respectively.
Open the Zoom Tool
by pressing "z" on your keyboard. Drag it
over that area to zoom into it. In this
we need to darken these areas of the "Z".
Make your text layer
active and open your
Rectangular Marquee Tool.
We're going to render one shadow at a time.
I'll start with this shadow.
Carefully, drag a selection
over your character
to the edge where the shadow begins.
Open your Burn Tool
and make sure the Range is "Midtones".
and the Exposure is 100%. Also,
make sure your "CapsLock" key on your
keyboard is NOT on.
Make the Size: 65 points
and the Hardness: 0%. Press the F5 key to open your Brush panel
and make sure "Shape Dynamics"
is NOT checked.
Press the F5 key again, to close the panel.
I'll brush across the area 7 times.
If you want your shadows to be lighter
just brush over it less or more times.
Delete the selection
by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + D. Next,
I'll brush in this shadow. Press
"m" to open your Marquee Tool
and drag a rectangular selection
up to the edge where the shadow begins.
"o" to open your Burn Tool and again,
brush across the same amount of times you did earlier.
Delete the selection.
To see the entire document
at 100%, press Ctrl or Cmd + 1
Make the "Samples" layer
active. Since the letter "E" is my second
I'll press "v" to open my Move Tool
and drag the
"E" sample next to my second character.
Open your Zoom Tool and drag over that area.
Make the text layer active.
The first shadow on this character
will be this one,
so I'll prss "m" to open my Marquee Tool
and carefully drag a selection to the
edge of where the shadow begins.
Press "o" to open your Burn Tool and again,
brush across the same amount of times
as you did earlier.
Then, delete the selection.
Continue this process
until all your characters look like the samples.
To see your entire document at 100%,
press Ctrl or Cmd + 1.
I'll add the shadows
on the last letter of my logo
based on its respective sample.
Once you're done
you can hide the Samples layer.
We're ready to set the secondary line of text.
Open your Type Tool again
and choose a font.
For this example,
I'll use a font called, "Labtop".
If you'd like to use it,
I provided its link, as well.
For this font, I'll choose a point size of 29
and Black for the color. Go below your logo
and type out your text.
To increase its "tracking",
highlight the text
and press and hold Alt or Option
as you press the right arrow key
on your keyboard.
To reposition it, open your Move Tool
and move it.
To center both lines on your document,
Shift-click on the logo to highlight both layers
and press Ctrl or Cmd + A.
Click the "Align Horizontal Centers" icon.
Then, delete the selection.
Make the background active and open your
Elliptical Marquee Tool. Go to the top,
left corner of your document
and drag out a selection
to the bottom, right corner.
Go to Select and Transform Selection.
Go to the top, right corner of the Transform and when you see a diagonal,
press and hold Shift + Alt on Windows
or Shift + Option on a Mac
as you drag the Transform in.
Then, go to the top middle
and when you see a vertical, double-arrow,
repeat the steps
as you drag the Transform down.
Then, press Enter or Return.
Go to Select, Modify and Feather.
Feather it 100 pixels. Then, click OK
or press Enter or Return.
Invert the selection
by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + Shift + I
Click on the foreground color
and pick a light color.
For this example, I'll left-click on the
medium color of my logo
to pick up that color.
Now, I'll move my cursor to the left
to pick up a lighter shade.
When you've picked your color,
click OK or press Enter or Return.
Fill the selection with that color
by pressing Alt
or Option + Delete.
Then, delete the selection.
If you want to give your entire image a
make a composite snapshot
by making your top layer
active and pressing Ctrl + Shift +Alt + E
on Windows or Cmd + Shift + Option + E
on a Mac.
Go to Filter and Filter Gallery.
Open the Texture folder
and click "Texturizer".
Choose Sandstone, make the Scaling: 100%,
the Relief: 2
and the Light is from the Top.
Then, click OK.
If you'd like to adjust its color,
you can do it a few ways.
Click on the Adjustment Layer icon
"Hue/Saturation". Go to Hue
and slide it's the right or left.
Another way is to choose "Color Balance"
and in Midtones,
slide the 3 color adjustments until you
like the color of your image.
