To start with I followed Jamie's instructions. I felt a linear gradient was a bit better for my logo because of how thick the letters are.
To get a little more grit, I rasterized the gradient, live traced it, and coloured it orange. It made it a little more rough and dirty, which I think looks cool.
Here is my final with some texture in the background.
Great class Jamie!Psst. Like my project? Follow me on Instagram @JonBrommet or check out my Skillshare classes at Skillshare.com/JonBrommet.
Update:I decided to make it a little less subtle.
