Create curved vector ribbons in Inkscape Introduction In this tutorial I'll take you through the steps to design and create a stylish, curved vector ribbon overlaid with a text label in Inkscape. This is a good tutorial for learning about managing groups of objects and keeping them together when applying Live Path Effect transformations such as the Bend deformation we'll use here.
What's more, we'll build the banner in such a way that we can retain the text as text, which is a bonus in case you need to change the wording or tinker with different fonts after the Bend has been applied. Let's take a look at the graphic we're aiming to achieve by the end of this tutorial.
To keep things easy to work with, we'll use a fairly large workspace for a web graphic: Make sure you've got Snap bounding box corners selected, and toggle the default grid on with the key to make our lives easier as we create shapes. Activate the Rectangle tool and drag out a px by 40px rectangle on the canvas; the grid will help you out.
Switch to the Pen tool B on the keyboard and, using the grid as a guide, click on a series of points to make an outline for the ribbon's ends - a polygon which has triangular edges on one side, and is the same height as your main ribbon rectangle.
Using the grid makes this a very easy process. Hover over the first point you created and click again to close the shape. Click and drag it into position with the Select Tool, which you can activate with F1. Give this shape the same fill as the main object by using the Dropper tool.
Press D to change to it and, with the new shape still selected, click the rectangle to sample the colour and replicate the fill. Use the Fill and Stroke pane to remove the Stroke.
If you've got your ribbon sections alongside the main shape like I have, move them in and up slightly so they look like they're tucked behind the front object. As all our shapes are the same colour, it can sometimes help to change it temporarily so you can see what's happening.
With the Pen tool, draw in the triangular shapes for the folds of the ribbon. Start with the easy edges - the straight vertical and horizontal sides of the shape - then finish the shape along the hypotenuse of the triangle. Remove the Stroke from this object and change the fill to a slightly darker shade of the same colour, using the Fill and Stroke pane - my colour here is d7f - which will imply a shadow and add depth to the illustration.
Looking at how it stands now, I think it's also a good idea to change the colour of the end section slightly, to distinguish it from the main rectangle area.
I've gone with a fill of ec9. It's a subtle change, but it really helps with the clarity of the shapes' edges. Duplicate this new triangle and move it to the mirrored position on the other side of our ribbon so we've got a nice back-fold effect on either end of our ribbon.
