This is a moment three decades in the making… I finally have a logo! I’ve made feeble attempts in the past at creating one, using all sorts of amateurish method including transparent gifs, Photoshop actions, clip art and other silly things. For some reason this week I decided enough is enough and sat down to learn how to do a logo using brush presets. It turns out it was actually quite simple and I don’t really know why I hadn’t done it years ago. Anyway, here it is!!!! My new logo:
To do this you basically create your art on a file with a transparent background and then use “edit > define preset” to create your custom brush. Then to use it at any time you just select the brush tool and click your custom brush, then with one click you “stamp” your logo onto the file. If you use a new layer to stamp your logo you can use “free transform” to scale it and apply any other layer effects you may want to use.
I probably won’t be making it this big all the time, but for this article I wanted to show it off 🙂
