here it's all the steps:

- choose a sporty font like freshman font.

- try to customize the text as possible to make it unique.

- make another copy from the text and make it the last layer without moving it.

- add a thick stroke to that layer and make it black.

- while the last layer is selected go to object and expand that layer.

- also, go to Pathfinder and unite the expanded layer to make it one shape.

- repeat the same process again and give the expanded stroke a hot glowing color like hot red. 

- to add shadows to the text, make a circle or a rectangle above the text and give it a different color than the text color.

- align the shape you made and the text vertically to balance the shadows, make the shape in the middle of the text.

- select both the text and the shape you made and use the shape builder tool, press Alt and delete the unwanted parts. 

- group all the design. more advanced effects in the class lectures.

see you in the class.

Youssef Sanad.
