Someone asked me to recreate a logo in Illustrator. The original logo was made with an old commodore 64 computer. I can't get the logo rounded / stretched.

How can I achieve the warp shaped text?

    You got this far by using a circular text path, correct? Might be worth adding that to the question. – e100 Jan 20 '15 at 15:08

  1. Type your fonts (in this case I guess and you suggest Times New Roman) and outline it.

  1. Drag it into Brushes. Choose Art Brush and use the default settings.

  1. Create a circle, and while choosing it, click on the newly created brush. Choose appropriate stroke to scale the fonts' height. Rotate it a little bit to match your original logo.

  1. Now it is time to expand your circle into a shape.

  1. Make three copies of the shape, and assign them the colors of the front, the start of the shadow, and the end of the shadow of the original logo.

enter image description here

  1. Choose the two copies for the shadows, make them into a blend.

enter image description here

  1. In the blend options, set as many blending copies as you like.

  1. Finally, move the front copy onto the shadow, and you are done...
