About This Class

This class breaks down what patterns are and how they are formed geometrically so that you may better design them from a conceptual perspective. 

You will learn what a pattern fundamentally is, how it is formed and repeated, and how playing with the composition, distance and direction of the vector items within your pattern can improve the conceptualization of your designs in order to create many pattern possibilities.

This class is geared towards students who have basic Adobe Illustrator knowledge.
