Illustrator Tutorial: Retro Text Effect with Concentric Stripes

In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial I’ll show you how to create a retro text effect with colourful concentric stripes. Illustrator’s Offset Path command produces the basic effect, but we will eliminate the tedious process of adding each outline individually with the help of an Action, so you will be able to fill an entire poster with this retro stripe effect within seconds.
