How did Decoder Ring do it?!

Hello!

I navigated my way over to http://thedecoderring.com to see what The Decoder Ring Design Concern had crackin' and noticed this HUGE "HELLO!" Here's my question: is there an easy way to do the 3D letter thing? I know that it's possible to do in Illustrator with the 3D "tool", but the type isn't forward facing anymore.

Help!

Yes. Is the short answer. For more details you can see Leslie Cabarga's Logo, Font, & Lettering Bible.

If you happen to have Fontlab there’s an action that does this rather well.

@paul d hunt, any place in particular in that book? I've got it pulled up on Google Books

Note that to do a shadow in a different color (even grey, like the example) requires that the shadow be a separate font from the main letters.

Cheers,
