I've started playing around in illustrator and came to a full stop when I tried to find a way to create a side curve to a text blend (cause I don't know the limitations of the blend tool)
Here's what I'm trying to create (these are a billion layers individually colored (poorly) and resized and frankly just nuts AND makes illustrator crash.
And this is just simple text blend
Can I ask, what is this text effect even called? Seen it on 70's and 80's logos/cartoons but did not know how to google more information about this. I went with the blend tool to start cause I like its gradient effect but that of course only goes in a straight line or if you change the spine curves only to one direction.
Does anyone know of a way to do this? Does it have to be done manually as in drawn or is there some other simpler way to do it?
