Patterns have been a part of cultures around the globe for centuries. From fashion and branding to interior design and signage, patterns blanket and beautify our world. Designers are often asked to create new patterns from scratch, and although digital tools make the process easier than ever, it can still be a perplexing task.
In this installment of Drawing Vector Graphics, Von Glitschka demystifies the pattern design process, explaining tessellations (mathematical tiles that lie at the heart of patterns) and visiting the various methods of creating new patterns. He shows how to build repeating patterns with Illustrator's pattern tools and pattern brushes, and incorporate patterns into your design. The course also features patterns from some of the industry's most inspiring designers.
The next pattern designer I want to share with you is Anastasiia Kucherenko, and she's based out of the Ukraine, and I am at, I've been a fan of her artwork for awhile now. I've seen other examples of her design work where she uses the same illustrative approach. And I've always admired the style she works in. And I think this specific pattern is one of my favorites of hers just because it utilizes one distinct color and I think that's something important to take into consideration when you create a pattern is that you don't always have to go overboard with a bunch of different colors.
And simplifying it down into one base color can work very well. And I think this is a excellent example of that in action. So, I'm going to show you her pattern fill now and this shows you how that pattern flows through an entire surface. And I just think it's really great, everything works together and fits together well. And even though, once again, in Illustrator you can see some of these preview bugs we've talked about in previous movies. It's a great example of a pattern that could be used for so many different things, from textile to maybe it's on the inside cover of a book, just a lot of various usages for this specific style and this specific approach in terms of simplicity so, a lovely example of a well crafted pattern.
