I thought I knew Illustrator, but I have no idea how this was created. Can anyone tell me how it was done?

Basically, you need a diagonal pattern..
Then use the Blend tool to blend 2 values in the object - Color and opacity.
Then duplicate the blended pattern and flip it, and position on top of the original pattern.

Generally..

1) Press 'M' then click the artboard to make a box. Enter 80 x 800 PX, or whatever. Apply your base color.

2) Select the rectangle and Object > Skew > -45 deg.

3) Shift + Opt + Drag the object to the side to duplicate it.

4) Set the fill of the duplicate to white ad set the opacity to zero.

5) Select the 2 objects and Object > Blend > Make, then Object > Blend > Settings: Specified Steps.
Here, you'll see how AI can programmatically generate objects.
Use the Direct or Group select tool to resize or reposition the objects to their desired locations.


This should get you started. Let us know if you need any more tips.

Thanks for your help, but this isn't very clear. Should I start with a square? maybe 80x80 not 80x800? I don't see a skew option, do you mean rotate? I can see getting a blend but I don't know how the boxes are flush with each other or how the blend goes in two directions, to the side and up. Also not sure how it fits into the artboard.
