    In this Tutorial, I will show you how to create this circular Logo below.
    1.) Let's begin by creating a new file. Go to File > New. Make it 400X 400 pixels on a white background.
    2.) Press D on the keyboard to set the default Foreground color to black.
    3.) Select the Text tool from the tool palette.
    4.) In the options bar (located top of program) select font style to Arial Black, 60pt and Smooth, then click on the work area to activate the blinking curser.
    5.) Now, click the Warped Text button.
    6.) When the Style Pop-up menu appears, click the down arrow and select the Arc setting, check Horizontal and move the Bend slider all the way to the right to +100%. Hit OK.
    7.) Type your text, and then select the Move tool to position it on the work area.
    Type should now look like this:
    8.) Next, Go to Layer > Duplicate Layer followed by Edit > Transform > Rotate 180. Use the Move tool to position text.
    Text should now appear as below.
    9.) Select the Text tool. Change font size to 48pt. then click on the work area to activate the blinking curser. Repeat Step 5, 6 and 7.
    Note: You can use the Free Transform tool here if needed to balance the bottom of text to the imaginary centerline if needed. (Ctrl+T) to select, rotate accordingly then click the Move tool to apply.
    10.) Select the Text tool. Change font size to 24pt. then click on the work area to activate the blinking curser. Repeat Step 5, 6 and 7, however, this time drag the slider all the way to the left to -100%.

Just hit OK to close, then hit Cancel to close the Styles palette. Repeat this procedure once under each Text layer.
