Text with gradients and outlines and multicolors

Friends,

 

A buddy of mine created text by "doubling" in ILLUSTRATOR.

I don't like the way it looks: can INDD do better? How?

 

Here's the relevant screen shot:

    Are you looking for something like this?

    If so, I did it in Illustrator, and I'm not sure if InDesign can replicate this (maybe with a plugin), but I doubt it. If you have Illustrator and would like to do it over there, I can walk you through it.

    Use another color? Another font?

     

    Maybe your friend can do better; if only you can tell him what to change.

    InDesign and Illustrator are just pieces of software - it's the end user that makes the final decision on how it looks.
