While looking at Mac OS X’s menu bar, I thought about how to make the gorgeous bevel-like font style.
(Of course Photoshop’s bevel effect does that for me with only one button.)
I tried with three layers of characters. The top layer is the main characters, the middle is the upper shadow, and the bottom layer is the lower shadow.
The characters on the shadow layers have a bit bigger font size and smaller letter-space than the main characters.
