Setting Type Above and Below a Circle in Adobe Illustrator


It seems like it should be simple—setting text above and below a cir­cle, curv­ing over the top and bot­tom, while still remain­ing upright and eas­i­ly read. It seems like it should be sim­ple, but it baf­fles many new and occa­sion­al Illustrator users. In this clip, you’ll learn how sim­ple it REALLY is, once you know the two-part secret to set­ting text above and below a cir­cle. When you know it, you’ll be able to design logos and more.
