This brightly coloured logo is an example of my abilities at using Paint Shop Pro. I like the inner rounded affected on the text.
Can't remember the name of the font to be honest. Theres a whole series of MKV logos on this site, I ran off several in one block.
I believe to create this effect I typed the text out and duplicated onto a separate floating layer. I then blurred the one layer, and set the effect to Overlay, or Hard Light.
I then shifted the floaty layer's transparency until I got the effect I wanted. I might of moved the whole layer a few pixels down too.
Styling on it is very independant. Notice the use of the plain black background, I really didn't design the effect to work with other colours.
It is more of a header/stanalone piece which would look better standing out at the top of the page.
