How do I rotate and duplicate a line in Illustrator


Question

I am trying to recreate the line swirl in our compliment slip in Adobe Illustrator? I have been struggling for hours with transforming straight lines, creating waves, rotating, etc. but still can't get there?

enter image description here

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated!

The tool you're looking for is called the Blend Tool.

Here's how you use it:

  • Create two lines using the Pen Tool:

Two lines that are the starting point for the blend.

  • Activate the Blend Tool W is the keyboard shortcut, or you can click it on the Tools palette:

Activate the Blend Tool!

  • Click on the two lines you want to blend.

Creating a connection between the two lines

  • While the blend on your artboard is active, double-click the Blend tool icon to change the properties, or go into Object > Blend > Blend Options....

Changing the blend's properties

That should do it! You can play with the stroke colors and positioning, but blending the lines together is the key to doing what you want.
