Typing in Illustrator

Posted: May 6, 2013 in Illustrator, Uncategorized

Many Logos choose to use lettering but very rarely are the letter not part of the design.

There are many ways to manipulate letters to include them in your logo.

#1  Type on a path – Design a shape (duplicate it if you plan to use the shape afterward) Select the type on a path tool and your lettering will follow the path of the shape.

#2  Un Grouping letters – This will allow you to move each letter individually so it fits exactly where you want it to.

-Type out what you want.

-Select it (black arrow)

-Object > expand > OK

-Use the Select Arrow to move as you see fit.

#3  Changing Letters – To make your letters into totally unique shapes, use the direct selection tool.
