I would like to achieve the "Nature" Text effect. enter image description here

If this effect has a name I can search for it, but I don't know where to start.

Thank you.

    I think you may have to elaborate a little. Like do you mean the hand-drawn look? If so... I would say you got 2 options. Write it by hand or use a hand drawn font.

  • @Joonas Thank you for the suggestions, I think I might write it by hand and place it in illustrator. Commented Mar 7, 2018 at 12:10

I assume you are asking how to distort some text. If not, please edit your question and add more details about what you mean by "effect". If you are simply talking about the writing and how it looks, it may be hand drawn (as I suspect, because none of the letters are the same), or you could use a handwriting font.

Anyhoo, to distort text, you can use Object > Transform > Shear. Set the options to Vertical, and change the Shear Angle as desired

enter image description here

Alternatively, if you want something more controllable, for example if there are curves involved, then you can use Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Mesh

enter image description here

  • I think it's hard to achieve that same effect without hand writing it, but distorting it is as close as it gets. Thank you. Commented Mar 7, 2018 at 12:07
  • There are many handwriting fonts on dafont and other sites. I'm sure you could find something similar.
