Arcing text into a U-shape (not in text warp menu)
I want to warp a string of text into a u-shape where only the top is bent but the bottom stays flat. Like this logo
but assuming the bottom remained flat and only the top went from big to small back to big.
Think of it as an arc-upper text warp but instead of a hump at the top its flipped upside down to a smile shape.
How to do?
Simply setting "arc upper" to a negative value in illustrator will keep the bottom flat and arc the top in the opposite direction.
