About This Class

Illustrator for Lunch™ is a series of short video courses you can study in bite size pieces such as at lunchtime. In this course you'll learn to warp shapes and text. You will learn to vectorize a photo and reshape it (we'll turn an apple into a square) and then how to warp and recolor text using three methods in Illustrator. You will also learn how to apply a gradient to text (something that isn't as easy to do as it should be!). Here is one of the effects we will create:

Great tutorial! Learnt so much about text shaping
And yet another fantastic class. Helen leaves nothing out. Everything you need to know about warping text inside shapes, including potential pitfalls, is in this class.
Wow...you have helped me to understand warp/distort text so much easier than all the other instructions I have struggled through over the past few months...I will always check your courses first from now on...thanks!
