Professional Web Design Studio Logo

Learn how to create a professional web design logo. We’ll show you several ways of working with text in this tutorial. The outcome from this tutorial could also go well with our Product Sales Page tutorial, as a proper logo wasn’t really made for it.

Final result:

Step 1

Set your foreground color to #298aeb, then grab the Type Tool(T) and enter the first part of your company name. I just used MW, my initials. I used Futura for my font, size 30, with a sharp anti-alias, but since this is a commercial font, you might not have it. A very good free alternative here is Trebuchet MS with the same settings.

Step 2

While the font looks ok right now, it’s a little boring. Let’s spice it up a little. We’re going to use a white stroke on a white background, and we’ll make it appear on

the lower portion of the text by adding some slight shading. Apply this layer style:

Step 3

Now that our text is looking pretty nice, lets add the second part of your company name. Set your foreground color to #6e7072 and use the same font settings as before, but make sure that you end up making a new layer so that you can position the text a few pixels to the right of our first type. Apply the same layer style we did in step 2 by copy pasting it over.

Step 4

Set your foreground color to #b3b2b2 and with a new layer, add your company info/slogan/etc under your company name. I used Futura font for this again, size 15, with an anti-alias of sharp. Again, Trebuchet MS with similar settings will yield almost the same result (Tip: set anti-alias to none if you use Trebuchet MS for this part). Give it the same layer style we used in steps 2 and 3.

Step 5

Now let’s add some graphics. Set your foreground color to #298aeb and create a new layer. Grab the Pencil Tool(P) and set the size to 2px. Then, to the left of the company info text, make something that looks like this:

Step 6

Now once again(and for the last time!) copy paste the layer style we used in steps 2, 3, and 4. Then position it like so:

Step 7

We’re almost done, let’s add an area where we can put a logo. Grab the Rounded Rectangle Tool(U) and set the radius to 3px. Create a new layer, and while holding shift, make a square shape. Then give it these layer settings:

Step 8

Now add your logo in. I didn’t really have a logo to use, so I just use Trebuchet MS as my font instead.
