Good retopology technique for 3d equivalent of Photoshop's Bevel-Emboss layer style?

I managed to get a good result using this info (How can you get Text Front Face Bevel like in Photoshop? - #5 by Salai_V_V1)

But, I want to reduce polycount.

Exoside quad remesh addon didn’t do a good job.

I guess I’m better of just doing manual retopology but I don’t know where to start.

Use Decimate modifiers to reduce the amount of edges and try Exoside quad remesh addon.

QuadriFlowRemesh on the blender also produces decent results.

Does this have to be actually 3D? If not, I’d bake it into a normal map and apply it on a single plane, no retopo required

Yeah, it’s for a 3d sign mockup.

Ok it doesn’t really need to be low poly but I’d prefer for it to be since it’s something I figure I should learn how to do.

You may try one of the tools mentioned here:

Or even some “extern tool” like so:
