Design is not just a free hand drawing or splash of color. It is an art with lines, curves, objects, colours, aesthetics, etc.
One more powerful way to express it is, in the form of pattern. Patterns create a great design. Good color and pattern make a good design.
What is a pattern?
A pattern, apart from the term’s use to mean “template”, is a discernible regularity in the world or in a man-made design. As such. The elements of a pattern repeat in a predictable manner. A geometric pattern is a kind of pattern formed of geometric shapes and typically repeating like a wallpaper.
Where do we find patterns?
Nature: symmetry, spirals, chaos, waves, bubbles, cracks, spots, stipes
Art and Architecture: tilings, architecture
Science and mathematics: fractals
My personal favourite pattern is chevron because it’s more of simple and decent and soothing.
In my next blog post, I’ll share you the different patterns with different examples following their usage too.
See you all soon!
