Add Text To Line Art Logo

In this tutorial, we will continue working on the candle logo. We have drawn the line art for the logo in LiveBrush and change the color in PhotoshopR. Now we are ready to add the company name to the logo.

Keeping our two color logo concept, we will continue to use the orange and blue colors. We have changed the color of the line art to orange and now we will add the company name as blue colored text.

  1. Open your project into Photoshop. We have one transparent layer containing our line art.

    As we use the Horizontal Type Tool to add the company logo, Photoshop will automatically add a new Text layer to the Layers panel.

  2. Click on the image, just under the candle, with the Horizontal Type Tool. Now go up to the Options panel and click on the Color Box to open the Color Picker. As we did in the last tutorial, use the Color Slider in the center of the dialog box to set the color to blue.

  3. We can use the Color Field in the Color Picker to adjust the blue color. You will see a small, open circle somewhere in the Color Field (large box on the left). Click and drag this circle to adjust the blue color. You will notice that the values for the HTML, RGB and HSB color settings change as you move the circle. I decided to use a medium blue color.

    Once you have chosen the color for your text, click OK to close the Color Picker.

  4. Now, type in the company name. The text will appear in the image. The Font settings that you used in your last project will be used for this text by default. We need to change this.

  5. Select the text and use the controls in the Options panel to set the Font, Size and Alignment settings for your text. Click on the checkmark in the Options panel to save the text settings. If your text still needs a little adjustment, you can use the Free Transform tool to make small adjustments.

  6. Click Edit Free Transform and you will see the Bounding Box around the text. I decided that I wanted my text to be taller. So I dragged the handles of the Bounding Box down until the text was the height I wanted.

Now we have our two color logo. In the next tutorial, I will show you another way to color your logo.
