A good web and graphic designer must be up-to-date to the current design trends, and typography is no exception. Typography is an art of arranging type and type design whether in conventional 2d or the trending 3d design. The following tutorials are collection of what I’ve found in the internet while searching for some inspiration.
CREATE 3D ART TYPE USING PHOTOSHOP CS5
The new 3D tools in Photoshop CS5 are more advanced than ever. In this tutorial we will use the new Repoussé tool to extrude some text in a way previously only possible in a full 3D application.
CREATE 3D TEXT WITH SOME EXTREME LIGHTING

3D TYPE WITH REPOUSSÉ IN PHOTOSHOP CS5 EXTENDED
In this tutorial I will recreate an image of a tutorial I did for Digital Arts Magazine last year which I used Photoshop and Illustrator to create a 3D text with a girl on top of it, the tutorial was the CREATE MILE-HIGH TYPE ART. So this time I will do everything using just Photoshop CS 5 Extended with the Repoussé. I also want to mention that I’m still learning these new features/tools and I will try to share as much as I can with you guys and if you are using the beta of Photoshop feel free to share with us as well.
