4.5 The Brand

To complete the composition, you will create a simple brand just underneath the perfume bottle. Then you will add a gradient to the font to lift it from the foreground.

4.5 The Brand

Hey, this is Gavin from Tuts+, and in our final lesson, I would like to add the text or the brand to the perfume bottle, and I had a think, and I've come up with a nice stylish title in French, which is fruit des bios which basically means forest fruits, as the image does have that nice fruity flavor to it. So if we just type in fruit des bios. The font I've chosen is Respective 2.0, the swatch is irregular. So if I bring that down, I'm gonna put that just underneath the perfume bottle. And what I'd like to do is bring the color up. For now let's leave it like that there. And, I'm just going to create a layer just underneath the text. What I am going to do is get the brush tool, just bring it right down and let's create 10% black and I am just going to quickly add some black just behind the text to bring it out slightly. I'm going to bring the opacity of the layer down just to see the difference, just slightly, just turn that one off. Let's bring it down again, just to bring the text out a little bit. And then let's zoom in again. Okay. Let's create another text layer. Let's do it away from that layer, so let's do it there. And let's call that Le Parfume. So, let's just change that font, make it very generic. Silver at extra light. Suffice, I'm gonna bring that down. And let's make that just off yellow. There, let's just bring that down, Make it smaller. Okay. So let's zoom out slightly. What I like to do is just group that and call this group Text. Let's open it and let's take this fruit des bios text. Duplicate that, hide that layer. I'm going to right-click and what I'd like to do is rasterize the type. And then I'm gonna lock the transparent pixels so I can add a gradient to the text, so I'm just gonna choose a couple of colors from the image. So let's choose this pink here. Leave it on white, actually. Now, with the transparent pixels selected, it basically means that, when you add something to this image, it won't affect anything outside of the pixels, so might just add this gradient. As you can see doesn't affect anything outside of the text. So I'm just experimenting to see how it looks. And, Let's see if we can do it up, holding the Shift key. How does that look? In fact, let's make sure we've got Linear Gradient chosen. See how it looks now. Okay, let's zoom out slightly. And I might leave it like that. Let's add a little bit more pink in there. Okay. That's looking good. And let's maybe see what it's like if we just duplicate the layer. That's probably too strong. So if we leave it as it is and we close that down, and let's just call that shadow. Then we zoom out, there we have our final composition.
