I came across a pretty cool text effect, and decided to test it out. These bend along a path examples were created in Illustrator.
I picked random words, with good variation, to see any quirks that certain letter might cause. It’s not an effect that will work universally, but it’s a nice layout.
Some testing with different cut points, and ironing out any other quirks in photoshop should fix most issues if I find ever a practical use for this in future.
