Let's start out by creating a new file. I used a 500x400 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with a black color. Then create a new layer set titled 'Logo Structure'.
Select the Polygon Tool, under the options palette choose fill pixels with 3 sides and anti-aliased checked. Now open up the polygon options palette and check smooth corners and uncheck star setting. In a new layer draw a gray polygon with #585858 color shade and 92x90 px dimensions.
Go to Edit > Transform > Perspective, when the transform points appear on your shape drag the the top right point up until you get the same design as shown below.
Under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow, Satin and Gradient Overlay blending options to the deformed gray polygon layer.
Create a new layer and draw a black circle with 16×16 px dimensions. Now under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add a gradient overlay blending option. Then set the layer's blending mode to Soft Light.
Duplicate the circle design layer three times and position it as shown below.
Duplicate the 'Logo Structure' layer set and go to Layer > Merge Layer Set, this should turn the duplicated layer set into a regular layer. Resize the duplicate design by 60% and position inside the original design. Then under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Outer Glow and Color Overlay blending options.
Place the smaller logo structure design into the 'Logo Structure' layer set. Then add two circle designs on the top corner of the logo design.
Once again duplicate your 'Logo Structure' layer set and merge it down. Flip the duplicate horizontal through Edit > Transform. Position it right next to the original.
Now duplicate the logo structure layer from step eight and resize by 50%. Then rotate it by 90 degrees CCW through Edit > Transform. Finish it off with another copy for the second structure.
Select the Horizontal Type Tool and set the font family to Arial Black, regular, 36 pt, strong and #C8ADAD color shade. In a new text layer type your name. Then under Layer Style(Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow and Satin blending options.
Futuristic Logo Design.
