10 Beautiful patterns for designers by Simon Stratford

10 Beautiful patterns for designers

Did anyone notice an explosion of patterns? When did that happen? Have I been walking around with a blindfold on?

I’ve just suddenly tuned into them.

Perhaps its the fact that summer designs have caught my eye. Bright, very bright colourful patterns seem to be the order of the day.

Patterns are everywhere

I’ve noticed them on everything from plates, cups, coasters, posters and prints to perfume, fashion and stationery. You name it, it’s got a decorative pattern on it somewhere.

When you are not looking for them, they melt into the background literally like wallpaper. But when you do start to notice them you realise two things. One that they are everywhere and two that its almost an art form in itself—no it is an art form.

They are everywhere, and just like fine art patterns come in many different styles. You’ve got watercolour pattern’s, line and geometric, flowers and floral inspired, repeating, non-repeating, hand painted, brush strokes, texture, vector, organic, animal and inspired by nature, gold and silver, college, fun and childlike and a whole world of pattern illustrations.

If you can name an artform I can find a pattern to match. So I’ve put together a very small collection of found pattern designs that I just love. They are not free, but they are well worth the money.
