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.
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.
I really enjoy seeing a nice designed pattern, not only for the style itself, but also to see how well it fits endlessly to its sides. At Society6 there are some sweet examples of modern, dope patterns done by talented artists and designers.
Here you can see a brief collection of patterns I really enjoy. From Pop Culture, to tropical fruits, these are pretty eclectic. For more of these, simply click the images and you'll get to see more of each artist. I hope you enjoy this selection, and if you have your own patterns, share them with us! Cheers. ;)
