Creating Stylish Logo in Disco Style

Would you like to create stylish logo in disco style? Then this tutorial special for you.

So, lets start! First of all create a new document sized 50×300 pixels. Select some appropriate colors, for example colors of #6a0037, #3f000c and drag a linear gradient.

In the above image I’ve used AG_Futura (150 pt, Crisp) as my font of choice. Actually, it is commercial, but if you don’t have it, you can easily find a good alternative. Ok, after that apply Drop Shadow and Gradient Overlay layer styles to this layer:

Now we have something like this:

The next step what we need to do is to add some glare to our word. Select the Elliptical Marquee Tool and create selection as shown on the picture below. Then activate the Gradient Tool and a white to transparent gradient, create a new layer and fill in the work area as below.

Ok, now select the text (Ctrl + left click the Layer Thumbnail in the Layers Palette) and press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert selection, after that press Delete to clear inverted selected area.

Remove the selection with Ctrl+D and change layer opacyty to 60%.

Ok, it is time to add letter ‘o.’ I think it will be better way to add disco sphere instead of this letter. First of all we should find some disc shpere clipart. Go to Google images and find some proper picture of it or feel free to use mine. Then bring this picture to our canvas an resize it. Now our logo should look like as below:

After that add the Drop Shadow layer style to our layer:

Remove the selection with Ctrl+D and then press Ctrl+T to transform this white circle:

Do the same things a couple of times to get the big circle from little circles as on picture below:

Merge all circles in one layer and press Ctrl+J to duplicate layer. Then move it as shown on my picture below and resize it a little bit with Ctrl+T.
