Here, illustrator Charles Williams shows you how to create an elegant logotype with a 3D finish. You’ll then learn how to integrate it successfully into a photograph to give a naturalistic result.

Rather than using a 3D application such as Maya, you’ll discover how to apply your Illustrator and Photoshop skills to create a photorealistic artwork with depth and a unique character.

If you don’t have Illustrator, you can still follow most of this tutorial; you’ll need to import Charles’s vector logotype, which can be found in our project files.
