Example of what I'd like to achieve. I already know how to create the spacing using the gradient tool. However the center image seems integrated with the spacing and not just sitting in the background.

There's no gradient anywhere in that image.

It is merely a line pattern. You can achieve this by drawing 3 lines of varying thickness.

enter image description here

Select all 3 and choose Object > Blend > Make

enter image description here

You may need to then choose Object > Blend > Blend Options to adjust the blend.


I think you'd have better luck with the Blend tool.

It also appears as if the center image has light lines of a constant width and spacing that match up with the gradient lines.
