The first thing that you need to do is open a new document which must be sized up for text. You can opt for a 505 px by 165 px at 72 dpi document. After making this step you must select your text tool and type the desired text by using the Arial Rounded MT Bold font. Next, you need to select a bright color such as pink. The Web 2.0 logo colors range from neutral to pink and bellow each one of them you can find a hexadecimal code. The code for pink is #ff00d2.

Web site designers use bold headings and logos in order to attract as many visitors as possible. Therefore, we recommend you to use bright colors and predominant fonts such as Arial Rounded, Helvetica, Interstate, Myriad Pro, Vag Rounded and FF Meta. You can improve the way that your logo looks by using subtle and smooth gradients. So, on your text layer you must select the “Blending Options” and make the following settings:
- check the gradient overlay;
- set the blend mode on “Normal” and the opacity percentage to 54%;
- opt for the linear style;
- set the angle to 90 degrees and the scale to 60%;
- check the OK button.
One of the last things that you need to do involves selecting the rectangular shape tool and making a rectangle that stretches a little bellow, above and beyond the sides of both dots. You have to give the rectangle the same pink color that you have used before. Blend it with the style you’ve created by clicking right on your original text layer, and click “Copy Layer Style.” After making this move you must simply right click on your shape layer and opt for “Paste Layer Style.”
