Looking for ideas to create custom type designs or font effects using a blend object? You're in the right place!
You can use the Blend tool to combine shapes and colors between two or more objects to create a new object. Using this fundamental feature of Illustrator, we'll show you how to create a unique text design.
Create stunning text designs in Illustrator for advertisements, street art, book cover, or a logo. Let's get started:
c.) Use Pen tool to draw an object to be used as a spine for the typography. Spine is an outline shape that defines the central area of the text body.
In this step, we'll learn how you can combine the shapes and colors between two or more objects to create a blend object.
c.) Select the circle and the rectangle group. Use Clipping Mask to clip the rectangle group inside the circle using Object > Clipping Mask > Make.
d.) Use the Pathfinder (Windows > Pathfinder) to trim the clipped shape.
Use this blend to replace spine that was created for the text in step #1 (Object > Blend > Replace Spine). For more details, see Change the spine of a blended object.
Ensure you create a copy of the blended shape when you assign it to a particular spine.
Repeat this step and complete your typography. Group all letters in the word and then save the design. To open this design in other CC apps for further use, export it to Creative Cloud.
Now, you can use this text on your poster, brochure, flyer, or any other artwork.
Here is the sample file that you can download to try out the design workflow:
