Three-dimensional typography is something we’ve seen a lot of recently, and it doesn’t seem to be dying down, either. So, how is this magnificent typography produced?

Adobe software, such as Photoshop and Illustrator, can also be used to create 3D typography, using various different tools and techniques.
