Introduction In the last post here we explored placing points along an a wave path we had created all using the built in functionality of the Geomerative library. This was ultimately to allow text to be placed along the path, which is what today's post will cover. If you have not read the previous posts, you will require a great library for processing named "Geomerative"  (Website) by Ricard Marxer.  I have struggled to find many similar sketches online [...]

This post whilst keeping a log for my own future use, I hope may serve as a reference for others out there with the same aims as me. Here we will begin to [...]
