I'm extremely new at graphic designing and my sister hired me to create a logo for her company.

It took a few days and I've finally perfected everything except the company name.I typed it along the path of a circle but I can't find out how to change the text background color to black and the text color to white in order to help it to pop more.

My sister loves everything else about the logo and loves the concept of the highlighting but i'm just not sure how to execute it.Thank you so much in advance for your help.

    In general you have to create an object behind the text and fill it with color. Type on a path objects don't have any background. A sample image would assist in answers. – Scott Jul 21 '15 at 1:13
  • Do you want the background colour to follow the shapes of the letters, like an outline of the letters, or to be a smooth line following the line of the path, like it's a ribbon the text is sitting on? (I thought both had been asked before here but actually I can't find either) – user568458 Jul 21 '15 at 1:14

  • Thanks for all the responses but I played around with it a bit and finally achieved the outcome I was looking for.I just used the ellipse tool to create a circle,then I increased the thickness of the stroke to a little taller then the height of the letters.I then put the new circle behind the letters srung around in a circle and It turned out great! – EuphoricPranaZenergy Jul 21 '15 at 5:33
