How can I create a fine diagonal stripe pattern with Adobe design tools?


I wanted to recreate this fine stripe pattern - see dark bar behind the logo on top card:

enter image description here

I started copy / pasting 90 dregree single stripes at set distances from each other manually, however in the copy and paste stage I quickly lost track of the distance since the width of multiple stripes + width of all margins becomes a confusing factor in copy / pasting the groups.

So I came here to learn how to create this effect in InDesign or Illustrator or even Photoshop.

How is this done?

Accepted Answer

In terms of evenly spacing elements in drawing software, I'd use the alignment tools and/or blend tool.

Illustrator has both.

My typical process is:

  • draw single object
  • clone/duplicate as many as I need
  • position one at the beginning and one at the end
  • select all then use the align tool
