Create a Concentric Spiral Text Path in Illustrator

The Spiral Tool in Illustrator decays into an ever tighter and smaller turn and doesn’t work as a text path. It makes text increasingly illegible or clunky as it follows the spiral. This tutorial shows you how to make a concentric spiral text path.

An infographic I’m working on.

I’ve used concentric circles to create the framework for the infographic above so you can see an example of how the principles can be put to practical use.

*There are other ways to create concentric paths; you could create a circle then go to Offset Path to create perfect concentric circles without a spiral.*
