How to make random dots in different sizes and spaces between the dots in Illustrator?


I am trying to make something similar to this?

Obviously it's possible to make it manually piece by piece, but I am looking for some kind of automated feature in Illustrator to achieve this?

Is this possible?

Thanks man in advance!

Colliderscribe is a great option. Another method of doing it is through the "transform each" feature.

  1. Make several copies of the object you want to create a background of. Select them all.
  2. Select Object>Transform>Transform Each
  3. Type a number of pixels to move the objects horizontally and vertically
  4. Type a percentage to scale the objects
  5. Tick the "random" option

The results will not be as good as Colliderscribe, but it works.
