How to make these popular shape borders for logos?
on Sep 15, 2013 at 9:05:23 pm

Hey folks,

As a videographer, I've been seeing this trend lately where videos often employ interesting shapes (variations of circles, trapezoids, squares, etc) that have these curved/beveled corners to frame their text.

To see exactly what I mean, check out the video below and skip to the 12 second mark and you'll see what I mean.

In addition to these outside shapes enclosing the text, there are also lines above and below the word "waterfall" that seem to be created in a similar fashion.


How are so many creatives making logos like these? Can it be done in Photoshop? Or is this Illustrator stuff?

Any tips?

thanks!

i'd do it in Illustrator, because it offers more precision and flexibility, but it can be done in Photoshop as well.

Using Rounded Rectangle Tool, draw the shape you need, in the shape options* menu (above document window) choose transparent fill and whichever color you want for the stroke.
Select Free Transform Path (Ctrl+T on Windows)and holding down Alt+Ctrl+Shift keys nudge lower corners towards the center.



*not sure when shape options became available in photoshop - might not be available before CS6.

hope that helps
:)
