    This tutorial has been created as a continuation on the shatter tutorial, and covers the techniques used to create the simple logo and text that appeared on my final rendition:

    If you would like to know how to create the background used in this tutorial, please read the shatter tutorial before proceeding.

    Step 1.)
    1.) Open a new document, or a pre-existing document. I'm using a 500 x 500. Fill the background with black.

    Step 2.)
    Create a new layer.Now get out the () elliptical marquee tool and make a selection like this in the center of the canvas:

    Now hold down the ALT key on your keyboard (you'll notice a little - 'minus' symbol next to the cross hair to indicate deselect mode) and deselect a portion of the oval like so:

    Step 3.)
    Set your foreground color to: # and your background color to: #

    Get out the Gradient fill tool () and set it up like so:

    Fill the selection with this gradient form top to bottom so you have something like this:

    Press CTRL + D on your keyboard to deselect this area.

    Step 4.)
    Press CTRL + J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer. Go to Edit->Transform->Flip Vertically.

    Now press 'V' on your keyboard to get out the move tool and reposition the copy a little bit. You can also press CTRL + T to resize it a bit. I've made mine a little smaller here:

    Optionally get out the Rectangular Marquee tool () and make a selection similar to this, and tap DELETE on your keyboard to remove some of the selection, as l've done here:

    Step 5.)
    Next press CTRL + E on your keyboard with the top-most layer selected/active to merge these two layers together.

    Now press CTRL + J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer.

    Click once on the original layer underneath the duplicate we have just made:

    Here we'll add the "glow". Go to Filter->Blur->Radial Blur, and apply these settings:


    Now go to Filter->Add Noise and apply these settings:

    Next go to Filter->Blur->Radial Blur and apply these settings:

    Now change the blending mode of this layer to "Luminosity".

    Now press CTRL + J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer, and make it a little brighter. Result:

    Step 6.)
    Double click the top-most layer again (the one without the blur) and apply the following blending options to this layer:
    Inner Glow

    Bevel and Emboss



    Change the blending mode of this layer to "hard light"


    Now press CTRL + J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer, and change the blending mode to "overlay" to give it a little bit of a highlight:


    Step 7.)
    Now we'll add the text to this create. Set your foreground color to white #FFFFFF get out the text tool, and select a font that you like. Here l'm using a font called Bitsumishi with a size of 35pt, you can download it for free here.

    Here's how my text looks after positioning it near the center of the canvas with the move tool:

    Double click this layer, and apply the following blending options:
    Outer Glow:

    Bevel and Emboss

    Gradient Overlay:



    After tinkering around a bit with the colors and opacity of a few of the layers, here is what l ended up with:
