- Use a Circle Element As A Guide
Select either a circle element or an image with a curved surface and place it on your design. Resize the circle so that it reflects the size you want your text to be. This will be used as a guide for placing your letters.
- Create Your Letters
Each letter of your word should have it’s own text box and all letters should be the same size (however big you want the text).
- Position The Letters
Each letter should be positioned on the edge of the curve (the circle element you created in step 1 and rotated to appear at a 90 degree angle to the edge of the circle. Space the letters out evenly.
- Group Letters and Rotate
Once you are happy with the spacing of your letters, you may find that the letters aren’t centred. To fix this, click on the circle and lock it into place so that it can’t move. Then, highlight all of the letters and group them together using the padlock icon in the top right corner. Use the rotate tool to centre your font.
