Hi there, does anyone know how to create these lines in this shape? Like on illustrator or photoshop. A client has asked me to do it but I'm not sure how to. Thanks heaps!

  1. Create the lines using the pen tool in illustrator
  2. Adjust the stroke thickness until you get teh thickness you want
  3. Convert them to outlines
  4. Straighten out the bottoms, either by tweaking the anchor points or just using a pathfinder shape to crop the bottoms straight.
  5. You're done!

The only thing I’d add to that is, draw half of it then dupe-reflect that and use pathfinder to join the two halves together, that way, there I’ll be no discrepancies with the symmetry.
