Why curve or warp text?
Whether you're just starting to learn the ropes of graphic design or you’re an experienced professional, there are plenty of reasons to curve text.
Perfectly aligned text is great for many designs. But sometimes you need to add in that human touch. Manipulating text makes your posters, social posts, and brochures more memorable.
You’re not going to be able to fit horizontal text into every type of design, so sometimes you’ll need to go vertical, curved, or even upside down to squeeze it in. Paths let you use every part of your space.
The meaning of the words you use tells one story, but their arrangement tells another. Curving, reversing, and changing the way you read text can alter how your audience encounters it.
