For quite some time now I’ve been wanting to be able to create “new!” and “updated!” type images for use at work and here on my site. I wanted something like you’d expect to see on a box of Tide or cereal, y’know? The splash-graphic. The “new and improved!” image.
I finally found the answer. If you want to make nifty 3D(-ish) “badges” like this one, look no further than the excellent tutorials at Bartelme Design: Part 1 and Part 2.
