Photoshop Inferno Typography Design

Here is a preview of what our ending typography design should look like.
“Inferno” Typography Design.

Step 1:

Let’s start out by creating a new file. I used a 700×600 pixels canvas
set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with a black color. Now create
a new layer set and name it ‘Inferno’.

Select the Horizontal Type Tool and set the font family to Lucida Bright, italic, 100 pt, strong and #FF7800 color shade. In a new text layer type ‘Inferno’ or whatever name you want to use.

Step 2:

Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow, Satin,
Gradient Overlay and Stroke blending options to your text layer.

Step 3:

If you choose not to follow through using the word “inferno” you can
skip this part but you can also use this step if you have any slogan or
description for your typography design.

Now choose the Horizontal Type Tool and modify the font family to Calisto MT, bold, 30 pt, strong and #B4510E color shade. In a new text layer type ‘the’ above ‘Inferno’ text.

Step 4:

Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow, Satin
and Gradient Overlay blending options to your text layer with “the”
text.

Steps 5 through 10

Step 5:

Now make a copy of your ‘Inferno’ layer set, on your layers palette
highlight the ‘inferno’ layer set and go to Layer > Duplicate Layer
Set. Then go back to Layer > Merge Layer Set. You should now have a
copy of your ‘inferno’ typography design in a new layer.

Step 6:

With the ‘Inferno copy’ layer apply a Crystallized Filter Effect,
Filter > Pixelate > Crystallized. Set the cell size setting to 10.

Step 7:

Go to Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen More. Apply two times on the crystallized design layer.

Step 8:

Now move the crystallized design layer under the original type design
on the layers palette. See the picture below for proper positions.

Step 9:

Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow blending
option to the crystallized design layer. Then set the layers blending
mode to Lighten.

Step 10:

Make a marquee selection around your entire text design then go to Edit
> Copy Merged. Then go back to Edit and choose Paste. A new layer
with the entire text design should appear on your canvas and layers
window.

Steps 11 through 15

Step 11:

Now go to Filter > Stylize > Wind and apply the settings below.

Step 12:

Go back to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur and apply the settings below.

Step 13:

On the layers palette set the layer with the motion blur effect blending mode to Hard Light.

Step 14:

Now go to Filter > Pixelate > Crystallized and apply the setting below.

Step 15:

If the final effect make some of your letters hard to read just use the erase tool and do some final touch up.

The final result

And here we have it your Photoshop “Inferno” Typography Design.
