Playing With Type

Playing With Type

This is the exercise we did to practice using the type tool in illustrator. On the top row, we changed the leading and tracking for the various words, and used the warp tool to warp the words on the far right. Below this, we turned the text into an outline and then stretched it on certain areas like you would with any normal shape. We also used the pathfinder palette to create the overlapping effect on the far right words in the second row. We used the type on a path tool to create the text below that, and then used the tool and typed on an oval below that. We changed appearance, outline, fill, and applied brushes to the rest of the type in order to get the looks shown
