Rainbow Text Effect in Adobe Illustrator
Today we will create a Rainbow Text Effect in Adobe Illustrator. At first, we will create a Pattern Brush, and then with the help of a few tools, we will create the Rainbow Text Effect.
Launch Adobe Illustrator and create a new document with RGB color mode.
Now follow the steps below–
Select the Rectangle Tool and create a square of size 5 pt X 5 pt. Now select the square and turn off the Fill color.
Now create 6 more copies of the square and place them vertically next to each other as shown in the image below.
Now we will fill the squares with the colors of the rainbow. The Fill color code of each square is mentioned below:
1st square – #ed1c24
2nd square – #ef4136
3rd square – #fff200
4th square – #00a651
5th square – #2e3192
6th square – #262262
7th square – #662d91
After filling color, turn off the Stroke color in for each square.
Now I will create a Pattern Brush with these squares. To know how we can create a Pattern Brush in Adobe Illustrator, click on the below link:
