Writing in a Circle

with Janell Wimberly

Writing in a circle or spiral is not really functional, rather it's more of a fun project for unique projects. It's not easily read or deciphered, but it can be such a dramatic technique that the design "steals the show!"
Writing on a curve is a much more functional technique, found on certificates and diplomas especially, with many different lettering choices, such as slants, straight up or with extra flourishes or decorations or drop shadows. However, getting the curve and letters to cooperate can be difficult, but with a few simple tricks, I can help you make it easier and less of a mystery. - Janell
