How to Easily Make Perspective Text in Illustrator

Illustrator Text Effects

As you know, there are many different ways to create perspective text in Illustrator. Some methods are a bit complex and will not allow you to edit the text once you create perspective. But the method I'll show you today is very easy to make and will let you edit the text (font, color, etc) even after you've made the perspective effect.

Step 1

Open Illustrator and make a new file at any size you want. In this case i will make mine at 1800 x 1200 px.

Step 2

Select the Perspective Grid Tool (Shift+P). As soon you do this, a perspective grid will be shown in the Artboard.

Step 3

Select the top center handle and bring it down a bit to adjust the perspective grid. By selecting and dragging any of the other handles you can keep adjusting the grid to your liking, but I will leave it as is for now.

Step 4

Select the Type Tool (T) and type your text using any font you wish. I will type 2 separated words (one for the left and one for the right perspective plane) using the "Diazo MVB Cond" font.

Step 5

Select the Perspective Selection Tool (Shift+V) and be sure to have the left Grid selected in the Perspective Widget.

Step 6

Click and Drag the "LOREM" word to a position you like in the Perspective Grid and release the mouse button.

Step 7

In the Perspective Widget, click over the Right Grid to make it active.

Step 8

Click and Drag the "IPSUM" word to a position you like in the Perspective Grid and release the mouse button.

Step 9

If you want to adjust the text scale or position, with the Perspective Selection Tool active drag any of the 4 corner anchor points to your liking.

Step 10

If you want to change the text, be sure to have the Perspective Selection Tool selected and click on the "Edit Text" icon in the top toolbar.

Step 11

Edit the text font and color as you normally do in Illustrator and as soon you exit Isolation Mode you will see those changes reflected in the perspective text placed on the grid.
