The way to have this re-sizeable without pixelation (jagged edges) is to Re-draw this in a vector application and save it as a .pdf (or any vector format) Photoshop is a raster (pixel based) application and will show pixelation when resized.

Try this: Draw two lines with a thin stroke, one at the top and one at the bottom of the picture. Select both lines and use the Interpolate Extension, to create hundreds of lines. Update: after the OP's inclusion of an image, it's clear now that the desired effect is to create a Moiré pattern effect. This can be done using the same technique as above, ...

The control points to adjust the pattern will be somewhere on your page, most likely in the top left hand corner of the page. It might be hard to see them. Perhaps try temporarily hiding the raster layer you are tracing over. You can do that in the Object > Objects panel, by clicking the eye icon to toggle visibility. Here's an example showing the ...

There are several possible ways to do this. This one is non-destructive: Here I have used a drop shadow on the top shape (which is a rounded rectangle). Then I duplicated all the shapes of the logo, and did a Path Finder Union on it. Finally I grouped the logo, then applied the united shape as clipping mask to the group. Using this method, there's no ...

You can envelope distort with a mesh a bunch of uniformly spaced parallel lines: This can go astray if you drag some node past another because the space between the lines is transparent. The result will be easily a mess (see NOTE1). If you have a bunch of adjacent filled rectangles instead you'll do not have that problem: Before envelope distortion the ...

Graphic designers generally don't use raster software for designing logos. They use vector software such as: Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, Affinity Designer, Inkscape (which is free), etc. You've tagged your question "vector" and "SVG", so I suspect you already know this. My advice would be to redraw the artwork using vector image editing ...

These are very nicely crafted "Blends" created in Illustrator. Draw several lines and select them. Go to Object> Blend> Make. Then go to Object> Blend> Blend Options and switch from Smooth Color to Specified Steps. Play around with the number of steps. While the blend is still "Live" you can adjust the anchor points on your ...

I guess your NC outline and the red bike outline are something like this: The NC state outline isn't a curve, but a filled closed shape which has no stroke. Only the northern border against Virginia is simple, all other parts are full of nodes. The red bike is a single stroke curve with no fill, it's drawn (or made as Offset) to be the reference how much ...

There are 2 different things going on with this- First is using the Corner Widget (with the White arrow Tool) to adjust the corner radius of Corner or Cusp Anchor Points. This will only work on Corner Points (that have no Bezier handles) or Cusp Points (anchors that have non- opposing Bezier handles which you adjust individually). This is accessed through ...

The drop shadow is basically a transparent blurred black copy of the shape, so you can as well make it by yourself as a separate shape. That copy can have a mask (=clip or transparency, both work) You can also convert the shadow effect to a shape by expanding the appearance: Warning: You have got a suggestion "use gradients". That's no-nonsense ...
