Hello everyone

I wish to recreate the following in Illustrator:

Capture1.PNG

I tried to do it myself using 2 circles and a rectanble. and then using the 'Unite' command in Pathfinder to join the three elements, but i do not get the nice curves that are in the source file.

Can you please guide me how i can accomplish this. Disclaimer: my Illustrator skillset is of a basic level.

Hi Monika

Thanks v much for weighing in.

I did not download the script, but i accomplished the same by doing the following:

  • Create two circles stacked over each other with a rectangle sandwiched between them
  • Align all the objects. (Shift+F7)
  • Then select all the objects and using the Pathfinder tool, and click, ‘Unite’
  • Then select all the objects, and using the Direct selection tool, add curves
  • Then rotate the shape as required.
