Tell it with a twist using Curved Text

Create captivating stories in your designs with beautifully-arched texts that you can curve in a few clicks.

Introducing Curved Text

Personalizing your design’s texts has never been this easy. With Canva’s curved text generator feature, you can easily transform your text into your desired curved shape and direction. No need to individually change every letter’s angle in your text–you can now customize your text shape with a few clicks.

Stylize logos with ease

Curved texts are perfect for designing logos or insignias for your budding business. Curved texts let you incorporate your brand name, service offerings, or tagline into the visual image of a round logo. This makes it easier to create a unified image of your logo that you can easily print into circular stickers, badges, bag prints, or other branding assets.

Generate print-ready quotes and text art

With Canva’s curved text generator, circular text isn’t the only text effect you can create. Easily combine curved texts to form waves, swirls, and patterns–and you’ll get more variety to your quote posters, labels, wallpaper patterns, and social media story backgrounds. Experiment with different Curved Text directions, angles, color schemes, layouts, and styles. When done well, you’ll get aesthetically pleasing designs that are ready for sharing and printing.

Make data visualization more appealing

Create space-conserving and compact diagrams for your next big presentation and reports with the help of the curved text feature. Designing Venn diagrams, pie charts or pictograms with curved text labels that fit within or around your circular shapes makes your presentation look clean and readable. Let accurate data shine through.

Accentuate your portraits

Spice up your self-portraits and images by adding curved text assets. Canva’s online Curved Text tool lets you jazz up portraits and create profile photo overlays for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or other social networking sites. With the curved text effect, you can easily showcase your personality and style by adding text quotes, shapes, emojis, and hashtags following curved, bent, spiral, or circular patterns.
