Text Distort Tip

Sorry, been a while, but let’s get rolling on this new tip. Today I will show you how to adjust your text with a simple distort option similar to the last one I did about the tire.


1. Use the text tool to write anything you want. I wrote Wave Ave. just cause we are going to do a wave like effect.

2. Draw a rectangle around the text it’s better if you don’t draw it yourself or things can’t get a little screwy just like if you’re using gradient mesh-you draw a rectangle first.

3. Select both of these and go to Object>Envelope Distort>Make with Top Object. Learn the shortcut if you want to save time.

4. Now just play around with the handle(this is way better than using type on path since you have a mix of large and small letters).
