I love the effect on this logo and was wondering if anyone knew any tutorials to help get a similar effect?
It would appear that there are three main effects going on - a gradient fill, a shape outline, and a drop shadow. All three can be applied using Layer Styles in Photoshop. You should then be able to bring this layer into Fireworks either as a .psd file or as a .png. There may be a way to do it in Fireworks but doing it in Photoshop is much, much easier. It also gives you the ability to go back and change your text without having to re-do all your settings.
I want to learn Fireworks and recreating the text effect on this logo has given me just the little kickstart I needed to play about with things.
As per lawndartcatcher's answer, type in your text in whichever font you wish.
Click your bucket fill colour palette drop-down and select 'Fill Options...'
Select 'Gradient' from the drop down, select 'Linear' then click the 'Edit...' button and add in your to and from colours with any stop-offs in between.
Click the stroke colour palette drop down and select 'Stroke Options...'
Select 'Pencil', 1 pixel soft, and change your tip size to something larger, depending on the size of text you've used. Leave whatever the default texture is making sure it's set at 0% and select 'Outside Path' from the next drop-down then tick the 'Fill over stroke' checkbox.
The last thing to add is the drop shadow. Do this by clicking the '+' button next to 'Filters' in your properties panel, the 'Shadow and glow' then 'drop shadow'. I found that '4' for distance, 15% opacity, '2' softness and 270 angle looked about right.
I ended up with this (I've not got the correct font):
And that ends my very first piece of design I've ever done in Fireworks. I quite enjoyed that!
Hope that helps!
