Gold Crown Logo

Begin with a 500 by 110 pixel document, with a black background.

Add text in white (#FFFFFF) (I used Arial, 36 pt.) Also notice how I erased the dot on the “i”. This isn’t 100% necessary, but it adds a nice edge in the following steps.

Now add a crown, (Custom Shape Tool, Shape Toggle, “Objects”) I then colored the crown in a nice gold tone. (#DFBC42)

Then place another smaller crown for the “dot” of the “i”. (Notice that the smaller crown has been duplicated, Gaussian blurred at 4.0, and merged with its original)

Now add an underline to the text (use a 1 pixel white line). Then thin the edges of the line, by selecting your “Elliptical Marquee Tool”, and setting the ‘feather’ option to 40 pixels. Then move the selected area near the edge of the line. Press ‘delete’. Part of the edges will disappear. Try to make your underline appear like so.

Now add a hue/saturation layer. Use the following settings.

Then merge the Hue/Saturation layer to the underline layer. (So the effects will be isolated to the underline layer)

Now return to the large crown layer.

Duplicate it, and Gaussian Blur the duplicate at 4.0 pixels. Then nudge the layer to the right three times.

Now return to the original text layer. Duplicate it, and Gaussian Blur the duplicate at 4.0 pixels.

Now add crowns at the sides of the underline like so:

Finally add some text for a small slogan below your underline. (I used 12 point white Arial)
