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.
Patterns are truly universal. They're found in the stock market, shark behavior, male pattern baldness, grammar, and even, meteorites. Creative types throughout the ages use visual based patterns to create some of the most compelling art in history. And throughout the course of human history, every culture has created their own unique expression of art through the form of pattern design.
I'm thankful we have the ability to create the same type of compelling patterns and do so with the ease of a digital workflow. But that said, analog skills still play a big part in well crafted pattern designs as you'll soon see. In this course, we're focusing specifically on drawing, designing and creating vector based repeat patterns in Adobe Illustrator We're going to discuss how to plan and map out a repeat pattern, the various ways of building it, and how to use your patterns in a diverse range of applications.
We'll also feature the work of some of the industry's most inspiring pattern designers. Learning how to create custom repeat patterns will help you develop a skill set you can apply to a wide range of usages in your own creative projects. So let's get started.
