How do I apply a blend to multiple objects?

English:

Hello. I am a university student attending a university in Korea.
I am studying design such as various Adobe tools such as illustrators and grid practice while imitating the works of other well-made designers.
I am writing to the community for the first time because I have a question while studying today.

The photo I attached together is a poster of LUST, a Dutch design company.
You want to create a contour graphic that takes up most of this poster.

At first, I thought I used the 'blend' function of Illustrator, but when I try to apply the blend to various polygons, it gets twisted..
So next time, I searched the community, made a brush, and applied it to a polygon, and I thought this wasn't the way.

 

So the question is -
1. Is there a way to apply the Blend feature to multiple objects?
2. Is there a way to give perspective (narrow and then gradually widen) when giving a blend function like this poster?
3. If it's not a blend feature, how does the graphic on this poster look made?

Thank you in advance to all the senior designers who reply 🙂

안녕하세요. 저는 한국에 있는 한 대학교에 재학중인 대학생입니다.
저는 다른 디자이너의 잘 만들어진 작품을 그대로 따라 만들어보며 일러스트레이터 등 다양한 어도비의 툴과, 그리드 연습 등 디자인 공부를 하고 있습니다.
오늘도 공부를 하던 중 궁금한 것이 생겨 처음으로 커뮤니티에 글을 남깁니다.

제가 함께 첨부한 사진은 네덜란드의 디자인 전문회사 'LUST'의 포스터입니다.
이 포스터의 대부분을 차지하고 있는 등고선 모양의 그래픽을 만들고자 합니다.

처음에는 일러스트레이터의 '블렌드' 기능을 사용한 줄 알았으나, 여러 다각형에 블렌드를 적용하려 하니 꼬임이 생깁니다..
그래서 다음으로는 커뮤니티에 검색을 해보고, 브러쉬를 만들어 다각형에 적용해보았더니 이 방법은 아닌 것 같다는 생각이 들었습니다.

 

그래서 질문은 -
1. 블렌드 기능을 여러개의 개체에 적용하는 방법이 있을까요?
2. 이 포스터에서처럼 블렌드 기능을 줄 때에 원근감을(좁았다가 점차 넓어짐) 주는 방법이 있나요?
3. 혹시 블렌드 기능이 아니라면, 이 포스터의 그래픽은 어떻게 만들어 진 것으로 보이나요?

답변을 주시는 모든 선배 디자이너님들께, 미리 감사의 인사를 드립니다:)

민지,

 

Hi. Jacob is correct. Use Object>Path>Offset Path.

 

To recreate that poster in part, I first used the Pen Tool and drew low poly closed shapes. I gave the anchor points a radius of 5.

 

Next, I used Object>Path>Offset Path.

Various sizes, increased each time.

 

Notice the overlapping strokes.

I used Live Paint Strokes. Fill with None color the stokes I did not want.

Expand Live Paint.

Then Joined strokes.

 

Recolor as you wish.

At the end, I now have 34 closed shapes.

 

Good luck with school!

민지,

 

Those shapes can be made with Object>Path>Offset Path, using a negative Offset when going inwards and a positive Offset going outwards.

This might be best to do with displacement maps in Photoshop on a grayscale image. You can then apply the color at the end with a gradient map layer.
