In this tutorial, I will take you through the process of creating a long shadow effect. This could be done on a logo or text.
The long shadow effect is usually seen in “Flat Design” which is a style that removes any effect that gives three-dimensions to an illustration, such as gradients, textures and bevels.
Flat design focuses on a minimalist use of flat colors, and it is really popular in websites and mobile apps.
I will also show you how Smart Objects can help you in the creation of assets for mobile applications. The template that I used in the video can be downloaded below.
Note: A Smart Object is a container that can hold one or more layers. It allows you to apply editable adjustments, distortions, filters, and transformations.
