This I added a basic solid background and text box. Then changed the text color and text type.
I started off with a solid background color then a text box in all caps with my name and an appealing text color. Then I aligned my text in the middle and added a blue glow around it and stretched it out farther away from the text.
For my professional one I started with a ripple background and then another layer of a solid color box and then a text box. Then i made the text blue with an inner glow and skewed it down.Then i added a red outer glow to complement the blue.
