Every big or small school management want unique banner or card for identification of their schools students. Through this, they can spread their motive about education. Every school has different spirit or slogan for transforming education so they design out the logos and badges for this purpose. These badges have been hanged or printed at uniforms of students for identification of schools. So the management place orders to the graphics designer in the market and spend a huge budget on it. Today I’m going to design school or college sign badge manually in Photoshop.
You would work in a market and would earn money after reading this single tutorial. So read it carefully and do a practice of every step along us.
Design School or College Sign Badge Manually
Step 1: Create Badge New Document
First of all you’ve needed a new document for the badge so go to File -> New from a main menu bar or press Ctrl + N command from the keyboard.
When you’ll click on the new option from the list a new window will open. Here first of all set the name of a file as “School Badge” by removing default name Untitled-1. Go next option in below and put Preset value as Custom.
After putting the name of a file and preset value now go to next options. This is related to the size of your document. So put the values of Width 2 Inches and Height 2 Inches also.
Width and Height have been adjusted now put the resolution of the document. This option is very imperative, without this you would not create a high graphics results. So I put the resolution 300 Pixels / Inches. After that give Color Mode RGB 8 bit and Background Contents as Transparent.
At the end click on an OK button to set up a new document. A transparent sheet will appear in the front of your screen in Photoshop window like below picture.
Step 2: Add Sign 5 Figure
In the badge insert a figure Sign 5 with Fill and Stroke Color #0177e1. Just select the Custom Shape Tool and pick up the figure Sign 5 from the shape box.
Step 3: Make Two More Duplicate Layers
After that make two more duplicate layers of the same shape, just do Right Click on the layer from Layer Panel and select the option Duplicate Layer from the list. Give Fill and Stroke color #ffffff to a copied layer and give Fill and Stroke color #0177e1 to second copied layer. See the picture and adjust all shapes same to same.
Step 4: Make Cross Sign on the Badge
In this step make a Cross like a Christian religious Sign, so pick up Rectangular shape and draw according to Saleeb signature with Fill and Stroke color #ffffff in the middle of the badge.
Step 5: Add Figure Waves and Text
Add a Figure Waves and text in the bottom of the badge or underneath the cross.
So select the figure Waves from the Custom Shape window and draw it in Fill and Stroke color #ffffff. Under the Waves now write text “CCS” in a capital case with Text Format Arial bold, Font Size 18pt and Font Color #c9f305 with a help of Type Tool and click on Tick Icon to finalize.
Step 6: Add Fern Shape Around The Cross
Now draw the Fern Figures around the cross sign, so go to Custom Shape Tool and pick up the figure Fern and draw on the right & left side of the signature with Fill and Stroke Color #ffffff. You can make proper placement of these shapes by Move Tool.
Step 7: Insert Sun2 Figure and Text
At the top middle side of the school badge now insert a figure related to the sun. So go to Custom Shape tool and select the figure Sun2 from the shape collection. Draw it with Fill and Stroke color #ffffff in the top middle side of the badge.
Pick up the Type Tool and write “Christian College & School” with text format Algerian, Font Size 6pt and Font Color #c9f305. Now click on Wrap Text icon above the window and pick up ARC Text style with Bend +50% and click Ok button. Click the Tick Icon above the window to finalize the work.
Finally, we’ve designed a creative school badge at a professional level in Photoshop. In the end go to File -> Save from the main menu and give PNG extension and save to your computer.
I concluded that we can easily create educational badges in Photoshop. In this above tutorial, we followed some steps, first of all, we created a new document according to the size of a badge. Added 3 shapes Sign 5 into a sheet after that made the cross sign by Rectangular Shape and add Sun 2 and Waves figure into a badge. Now inserted Fern figure in left and right sides of the cross sign. Wrote the text above and below of the badge. Finally, we’ve created an impressive school badge.
