I have used Office 13 for the demonstrative purpose. Earlier versions of MS-Office also have this facility available. The final result will look like the image shown below:
- Go to ‘Insert’ tab. A ribbon shows up. Under ‘Text’ group, select ‘Insert WordArt’.
- Then, create your object in WordArt. Once done, with the text selected, you must see the ‘Drawing Tools’ tab at the far end of the ribbon. Click it if it is not already open. In the middle of the ribbon is the ‘WordArt Styles’ group. You must see a small glowing ‘A’ drop-down menu. On hovering over it, you will find it to be the ‘Text Effects’ drop-down menu. This is what does the magic. Click on it. Select ‘Transform’. Under ‘Follow Path’, select a circular transformation.
- Adjust the text according to your requirement. Play with it to get your best fit. Then again go to ‘Insert’ tab and under ‘Shapes’, select an oval shape. With the shape selected, ‘Format’ tab should automatically open for you. If it is not, click on it. Under the ‘Shape Styles’ group, give your shape a ‘No fill’ and a black outline. Drag it over the WordArt you created. Adjust to get the best look. Similarly, add another circle and give it a ‘No fill’ and a ‘Black Outline’. Put it inside of the text. Adjust to get the best look. Now at the center, you can insert a textbox or an image as per your requirement. The result should look something like the first image of this blog.
