Don’t you use gold text often unexpectedly in Illustrator?
I’ll try making gold gradient text usually used for leaflets,signboard,title,or logo.
How to add gold gradient to text.
First, make a black background as you can see text well.
Make an artboard size square using［Rectangle Tool］and align with the horizontal and vertical center using the [Align Panel].
Lock the back layer and make a new layer.
Use the [Type Tool] to type letters on the new layer.
Without turning text into an outline, you can’t make a gradient.
So, use the [Type] dropdown menu, choose the [Create Outlines].
Choose the outline text, and choose [Window] in the dropdown menu→[Swatch Libraries]→[Gradients]→[Metals]
Choose the “gold” (Upper left.)
Use the [Gradient Panel] and choose the [Radial].
Aspect Ratio: 600%
Change the position of the second Color stop from 25.28% to 50%.
The point is that the gradients are in close proximity.
When the colors are in close to the light and dark areas, you can make clear gradation.
