In this tutorial I’ll teach you how to create this Vector Artwork in Adobe Illustrator.
Open up a new document A4 size. Make a rectangular shape and fill the background in with a radial gradient with a light grey and white. Lock the background layer.
Select the path you’ve just created, go to Object > Expand Appearances to convert the path to shape. Right click the shape and select Ungroup. You will now be able to select each colored line.
Note: To make pathfinder viewable go to Window > Pathfinder or select Shift+Ctrl+F9.
I have decided to flip the lines over and move them to the left corner, if you would like to do this select all the lines. flip and move using the Selection Tool. Create a new layer to go underneath the lines, with a color of your choice create various sized circles with the circle tool
Time to experiment! Using the circle tool I have created various circles, I have added a gradient to some, made some different colors and put a Hard Light & Overlay Blending Mode. With the see through circle I created 2 circle sizes, with the smaller sized circle in front of the larger size, I selected them both and clicked on exclude in Pathfinder.
Copy and paste the texture ontop of the design layer. I’ve made the paper texture black and white by going into Image > Adjustments > Desaturate. I’ve made the layer blending options hard light and opacity 13%. You can experiment with what blending mode works best for you.
