If you’re already working on a project and just need to curve some text, skip this step.
Start a new project in Adobe Illustrator. You can do this by clicking Create new... on the left side of the opening screen. This will give you a blank canvas.
If you haven't already, type the text you want to curve using the Text Tool. The icon looks like a capital T in the tool tray.
To curve text, we'll use the Arc Effect. First, be sure to select the text you want to curve.
To reach the Arc Effect menu, go to Effect > Warp > Arc. You should see a pop up with a few sliders for adjusting the curve of your text.
Use the sliders to create the desired curve effect on your text. Check the Preview box to see the curve adjustments in real-time. When the curve looks just right, click OK.
