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 artist is Dennis Bennett based outta Germany. And when I came across his pattern artwork, I just immediately fell in love with it, it's just, how, how can you not? One it has dinosaurs and two it's just super, just really fun, it's fun to look at and that's what make a great pattern. If you can look at the pattern and immediately engage with it, it's all a good thing. And the interesting thing about this specific artwork is that this is his pattern tile but notice it's just a simple square shape.
And you might think that might not lend itself well to tile. You might think, well, you're going to see the repeat too easy, and in this case, he's really planned it out well, because when you look at the pattern fill, you can't really determine immediately where that repeat is. It kinds goes with the formatting of the art. It fits with it. He designed it specifically to be a rectangle in nature and so it all fits together well and works extremely well as a repeat pattern.
I could see this on bed sheets for kids or shower curtains. All kinds of usages. It's just a, a fun way to integrate some simplified illustrated elements and compose it in such a way that it works well for a repeat pattern, and the vector art is done in such a way that it has a nice hand drawn quality to it, and I think that's nice as well. So over all a great pattern design.
