The first one

You can just create a square and use object - transform - move (and make sure to hit copy) to move the square at the desired length (vertical or horizontal).

I just made a 10 x 10 pixel square and moved the square 12 pixels downwards.

move options

Then press CTRL + D to repeat that action.

Select the entire row and go to object - transform - move and now select a horizontal of 12px (or whatever distance you're working with). Then delete some of the squares.

group of squares

Then select the outer squares and go to object - transform - scale. Select percents like 50% and then 25% for the farthest right squares. Then randomly select squares and give them different colors.


For the second effect

I think they might have used a scatter brush. See a Adobe video
