Tutorial “campo de Búsqueda” Illustrator


This is what you’ll be creating:

preview

Step 01

Create a 750 by 300px document. First, turn on the Grid (View > Grid) and the Snap to Grid (View > Snap to Grid). Next, you’ll need a grid every 10px. Go to Edit > Preferences > Guides & Grid, enter 10 in the Gridline every box and 1 in the Subdivisions box. You can also open the Info panel (Window > Info) for a live preview with the size and position of your shapes. Do not forget to replace the unit of measurement to pixels from Edit > Preferences > Unit > General. Al these options will significantly increase your work speed.

Step 02

Pick the Rectangle Tool(M) and create a 630 by 200px shape. Fill it with any color. I used a red tint and I lowered the opacity so that you can distinguish the grid and the position easier. Continue with the Rectangle Tool(M) and create three new shapes. A long rectangle (500 by 60px), a square (60 by 50px) and a 230 by 100px shape. Place them as shown in the following image. The Snap to Grid will ease your work. Let’s focus on the last of these shapes. You need to add discrete roundness effect for the bottom anchor points. You’ll need the Round Any Corner Script. Save it to your hard drive then pick the Direct Selection Tool(A). Select the bottom anchor points and go to File > Scripts > Other Script. Open the Round Any Corner Script, enter a 7px Radius and click OK. In the end your shape should look like in the third image.

Step 03

Now, let’s add some color. Start with the largest rectangle. First, fill it with the linear gradient shown below. If you take a closer look at the gradient image you’ll notice some white text. It stands for Location. It means that you need to select the little diamond icons and move them to 20% and 70%. With the shapes still selected go to the Appearance panel. Open the fly-out menu and click on the Add New Fill. This will add a new fill for your shape. Select this second fill. Make it black, lower its opacity to 20%, change the blending mode to Multiply then go to Effect > Artistic > Film Grain. Enter the data shown below then click OK. Finally add a 2pt, aligned to outside stroke (R=65 G=64 B=66).

Step 04

Keep focusing on the shape from the previous step. First, you’ll need to add a nice patter. Let’s get the desired pattern. Open the fly-out menu of the Swatches panel and go to Open Swatch Library > Patterns > Basic Graphics > Basic Graphics_Dots. This will open a new window with some nice pattern. Reselect the large rectangle and add a third fill. Select it. Lower its opacity to 70%, change the blending mode to Multiply then click on the “10 dpi 20%” pattern. Now, the effects. Select the entire path and go to Effect > Stylize > Rounded Corners. Enter a 5px radius and click OK. Make sure that this effect is placed above the stroke (in the Appearance panel). Reselect the entire path. This time go to Effect > Stylize > Drop Shadow. Enter the data shown below and click OK.

Step 05

Let’s move to the 500 by 60px shape. Fill it with white and add a 0.75pt, aligned to outside stroke (R=209 G=211 B=212). Select the fill and go to Effect > Stylize > Inner Glow. Enter the data shown below then click OK. Reselect the entire path and add the Rounded Corners and the Drop Shadow effects.

Step 06

Continue with the square shape. Fill it with the linear gradient and add a 0.75pt, aligned to outside stroke (R=0 G=158 B=223). Reselect the entire path and add the Rounded Corners, the Drop Shadow effects and the Outer Glow effects.

Step 07

Reselect the square shape and go to Object > Path > Offset Path. Enter a -2px Offset and click OK. Select the resulting shape, keep the stroke and the Rounded Corners effect then remove the fill and the rest of the effects. Select this remaining stroke. Make it white, lower its opacity to 70% and change the blending mode to Overlay.

Step 08

Next, we’ll create a smooth arrow shape. Pick the Rectangle Tool(M) and create a 20 by 20px shape. Fill it with none and add a 10pt stroke (any color). Pick the Direct Selection Tool(A), select the bottom, left anchor point and hit the Delete key. Select the resulting path, open the Stroke panel (Window > Stroke) and click on the Round Join and Round Cap buttons. Next, go to Object > Transform > Rotate. Enter a -45 degrees angle, click OK then go to Object > Expand.

Step 09

Select the shape made in the previous step and place it as shown in the following image. Fill it with white and add a 1pt, black stroke. Select the stroke and change its blending mode to Soft Light then select the entire path and change its blending mode to Overlay.

Step 10

Select the remaining shape. First, fill it with R=109 G=207 B=246 and add a 0.25pt, white, aligned to inside stroke. Select this stroke and change its blending mode to Overlay. Add two new fills for this shape then use the linear and the radial gradients shown below. The yellow text from the gradient images stands for Opacity.

Step 11

Disable the Snap to Grid then make two copies of the shape from the previous step (Ctrl+C > Ctrl+F > Ctrl+F). Select the top copy and hit the up arrow once (to move it 1px up). Reselect both copies and click on the Minus Front button from the Pathfinder panel. Fill the resulting shape with white and change its blending mode to Overlay.

Step 12

Pick the Type Tool, click on your Artboard and add the black text. Use the Techno Overload font with a size of 70pt. Make a copy of this text (Ctrl+C > Ctrl+F) and make it invisible. You’ll need it in the next step. Open the Transparency panel. Select the original text and the blue shape then open the fly-out menu of the Transparency panel. Click on Make Opacity Mask then uncheck the Clip box.

Step 13

Turn on the visibility for the text copy made in the previous step. Select it, go yo Object > Expand then go to Object > Compound Path > Make. Make a copy of this path (Ctrl+C > Ctrl+F). Select it then hit the down arrow and the right arrow once. Reselect both shapes and click on the Minus Front button from the Pathfinder panel. Finally, make sure that the resulting shapes are fill with black.

Step 14

Pick the Rectangle Tool(M) create a 230 by 10px shape and place it as shown in the first image. Fill it with R=18 G=126 B=174 and lower its opacity to 10%. Duplicate this shape. Select the bottom anchor points of this copy (with the Direct Selection Tool) and move them 5px up.

Step 15

Enable the Snap to Grid. Pick the Rectangle Tool(M) and create two new shape, like the red ones shown in the first image. Grab the Delete Anchor Point Tool(-) and click on the highlighted anchor points. This will turn the rectangles into triangles. Fill them with the linear gradient shown below.

Step 16

Disable the Snap to Grid. Focus on the left triangle made in the previous step. Select it and make two copies (Ctrl+C > Ctrl+F). Select the top copy and hit the left arrow once. Reselect both copies and click on the Minus Front button from the Pathfinder panel. Fill the resulting shape with R=18 G=126 B=174. Move to the right triangle shape. Again, make two copies. Select the top copy and hit the right arrow once. Reselect both copies and click on the Minus Front button from the Pathfinder panel. Fill the resulting shape with R=18 G=126 B=174 and you’re done.

Final

Now your work is done. Here is how it should look like.
