How to Create a Colourful Stacked Text Effect (Illustrator & Photoshop Tutorial)

In today’s tutorial I’m going to show you how to create a colourful text effect with several stacked text elements that are progressively spaced further apart and transition through the colour spectrum to produce a rainbow effect. It reminds me of the kind of retro design you might see on an old VHS tape box or an ad for an 80s technology brand. Illustrator’s Blend Tool will be used to create the basic stacking text effect, but I will also show you a trick to alter the spacing of the text with a cool easing effect and show how to give the vector artwork the look of an old, damaged VHS tape box by adding textures in Adobe Photoshop.
