I am going to twirl down the parameters for this layer and you will see a…brand-new category called Geometry Options.…Underneath here is where you can do Extrude and Bevel.…If you have no extrusion, you won't see beveling.…So the first thing you are going to need to do is scrub out the extrusion depth…to pull out your characters.…Now, if you don't have a light in the scene, every surface of your character is…going to be 100% of the text color you chose.…So there are two things I will recommend: one, choose a color that has some…variation in the RGB channels--I tend to like things in the yellow or gold…regions so I will go over here--…and the second thing is you really want to have a 3D light in this scene…so that the different services are shaded differently, depending how the…light is striking them.…
Otherwise, you just get this very graphical retro look, which is cool but not…what I am after here.…So I am going to go up to Layer > New > Light.…Spotlight is fine; point lights are great as well. Don't need falloff. Don't…
