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.
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.
