Working with WordArt

If your Word documents leave you with that nagging “it’s just missing something” feeling, you might want to add some graphical text. Graphical text works especially well in intentionally eye-catching types of documents, such as brochures, flyers, newsletters, Web pages, and advertisements. If you decide to add graphical text, you’re in luck—the WordArt feature helps you create and customize graphical text quickly and easily.

Used creatively (and sparingly), WordArt can add a splash of color, a bit of dimension, a touch of originality, and a professional polish to your documents. The sample document in Figure 12-32 illustrates how a couple of default WordArt styles can be combined to create a Web page logo. These default WordArt styles and colors are certainly adequate, but if creating a unique look is a concern, you should seriously consider customizing WordArt objects whenever you use them—otherwise, people might recognize that you’re using a standard WordArt style. If you master the WordArt features described in this chapter, you’ll be able to create highly customized graphical text for your documents.
