It's about creating a procedural metallic text effect with a nice reflective look. It can also be used as a "golden like" text logo.
You can design this effect by going to this online metallic text logo designer and filling it this way:
- Text: SHINY METAL (choose your text);
- Font size: Big;
- Margin: 3;
- Background color: FFFFFF;
- Font name: Die Nasty.
That metallic logo maker with such configuration creates this nice effect (click to enlarge):
- depending on the font face you select, you can create a mix of reflective and transparent effect;
- dark backgrounds decrease the 3D look. If you intend to get some transparent look, choose a proper back color;
- produce creative text logos by using these cool online text logo generators.
Is there a text effect you would like to see here? You can ask for it commenting here or sending me an e-mail.
