I need some help defining the technique used in this image.

the word play with an effect added

I call it a 3d drop shadow but that isn't the best or correct term to use for this graphic.

1 Answer 1


I would simply call it 3D extruded text.

    @joojaa, yeah you're right. Or just "extruded text". But it's such a short answer - I needed all the characters I could get :-).
