How do I edit type in Illustrator to round off corners?

Recently I wanted to recreate Fasthosts’s logo for a small project of mine.

I found out which font it is, but the styling is a bit different than in the logo. It looks like the top of the letters / font is rounded or curved to the right.

I’ve highlighted the parts in red boxes, to give you an idea what I’am talking about.

To be honest, I have a little experience in Illustrator, but have no idea how to style letters / fonts like this. I hope you guys can help me out.


You have to break the text into outlines (menu Type > Convert to Outlines / Mac: +SHIFT+O / Win: CTRL+SHIFT+O) then you can edit the points individually. You can’t edit points directly on text before that.

I recommend you find some basic Illustrator tutorials because it doesn’t get easier from there on!
