So I just randomly saw this image on behance and I was just curious how it was created. To me it seems like the creator used warp tool but I am just stuck on how he or she was able to warp the text in a radial direction with amazing consistency in the flow...
I think this has been created using the Warp tool, and some oval guides, as a starting point.
However it would appear to have been done manually only on specific parts of the design, and perhaps tweaked later, by adding/removing nodes, fixing inconsistent curves, etc. I certainly don't think it's just some automated one-click effect.
I created a similar example just to see if it was possible using the techniques described above. Obviously, I did this rather quickly for the sake of creating an example, but I suspect much more care was taken by the person who created the original.
