How to quickly add some effects?

I’d want to know how should I produce some effects of the fonts like shadow, inline, line shadow etc. just like this:

I tried the free shadow filter but I don’t have any idea how to produce a long flat shadow like in the example above. Do I have to draw it by hand or there’s some faster way to do it? Or use illustrator to draw the effects and then import to glyphs?


Draw your base letters in Glyphs. Then copy them to Illustrator and add the effects with actions. Old Stock by Borges Lettering can do great stuff.
