If you’re comfortable using Adobe Illustrator, it’s time to tackle the more advanced techniques we can use to build complex, beautiful repeating patterns. In this course, we’ll quickly cover the basics of building repeating patterns, and progress to more skillful pattern techniques like how to build geometric, diagonal, layered, textured and lined repeats.
This course is for you if:
You’ve been bitten by the ‘pattern bug’ (you’re obsessed with patterns)!
You’ve tried to deconstruct a pattern in your mind that you’ve seen out ‘in the wild’.
You’ve ever gotten that annoying error “patterns cannot contain anything painted with a pattern”.
You think geometric patterns must require some advanced knowledge of calculus.
If a keyboard shortcut has ever literally, changed your life.
In this course, we’ll be focusing on more complex ways to construct patterns. We’ll start with the basics and quickly progress to advanced pattern building skills.
