Illustrator Tutorial: How to create sliced text effect in Adobe Illustrator. You can easily create this kind of effect with some easy basic steps. I use the "Shape builder tool" to divide the text into two parts and place the gradient in one part to reflect like a shadow of another one. I make it with text, you can create this with any shape like with circle, square, star, any logo, etc., that will look creative.
