NSL WEEK 269- Adobe Illustrator “Warp Outlined Text”

Sometimes you need to warp your outlined text in Adobe Illustrator.

I love how this came up! I was just chopping it up with my homie over a burger. The video above is what came from the convo. Thanks for all your help Philip!!!


Adobe Illustrator Outlined Text

The text I’m using has already been outlined. At this point, you can’t use your type on a path tool to warp this text.

Select your objects, find Envelope Distort and choose Make with Warp. You get all these cool options to play with.

One way to create circular text is to convert it into an art brush prior to applying it to an ellipse.
