So this has no Bump Map on it currently. So these faces here are just completely flat. So with my logoMaterial selected, I can scroll down until I get to the Maps roll out. And you'll see Bump. So I'll click there where it says None.

And I can add a Bump Map. And a Bump Map is supposed to be a Grayscale Height Map. So in other words on the image or pattern, a white part of that image or pattern is going to be a hill and a black part of that pattern is going to be a valley in my Bump Map. So I can try a Cellular map. Double-click on that. And you can see we're already getting some interesting Bump effect here on the Sample Slot. So I'll go ahead and do a Render of that.

So this is now the Cellular Effect. Okay, so I'm going to go up one level again, back to the top level of my Material. And what...
