I'm a big fan of patterns so I decided to research some really cool and rad patterns to display here for you along with some really basic pattern shapes in the mix. Check them out and get inspired for your next project.
During our day we might pass by hundreds of awesome different kinds of patterns and we might not even notice. Maybe in a trip to downtown, to the zoo, to the country, or to wherever, you might find a cool pattern no one else would notice if you didn't take the time to appreciate the view.
I've search for cool everyday, mundane patterns to show everyone how beauty is really in the details. So the next time you step outside, remember to embrace your contemplative eyes. Here you can see some pretty awesome pattern captured by some super talented people.
Most people might not like insects, but there's no reason to not appreciate the beauty of butterflies. They get to be insanely beautiful, in a variety of colors and patterns, which is super amazing.
Also, I love the fact that their markings are symmetric and look so much like the Rorschach test. It's pretty fantastic, really. I hope you appreciate these, and don't forget to click each photo to visit each photographer's page! Cheers. ;)
Last weekend I was playing in Illustrator trying to create a simple wallpaper to use on my phone and tablet. I love geometric patterns, but I hadn't done anything like that in a while. So, I started playing with some ideas inspired by Andy Gilmore. It's really nice to see how the Pattern Tool in Illustrator facilitates the process of creating patterns these days.
So in this tutorial I will show how to create a simple pattern in Illustrator. The process is pretty straightforward, but I believe it will be really useful when you need to create vector patterns for your projects.
