I have been trying to duplicate this effect on a different logo, and am having a lot of trouble getting the distortion to look right, especially around the edges. The logo I'm applying this effect to is pretty clean with hard edges. Does anyone know how I can achieve this?

I would try a bevel emboss and a stroke effect, using "Dissolve" as the blending modes.
