Class Description

Hello everyone welcome to my latest class. I’m Jen Lezan and I’ll be  the one guiding you through this creative course. I’m a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and educator based out of the midwest and I run Bella + Sophia Creative studio. If you want to learn more about me, check out my youtube channel: The Freelance Life to get a behind the scenes view of the work I do as a freelancer and the work that goes into making classes like this one. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge here on Skillshare and over on Youtube as I think it’s an accessible way to learn new skills.

This month, I wanted to add to my growing library of surface pattern design related courses. I wanted share my process for creating quatrefoil and ogee style surface pattern repeats using Affinity designer. 

I really enjoy creating pattern repeats on my iPad as I find it is a very convenient work flow that allows me to work on the go with minimal tools.

What the class is about

In this class, I will walk you through my process on how to make a quatrefoil and ogee style seamless repeating patterns using affinity designer. Before we jump into the design process though, I will share some of the historical relevance of these patterns for inspiration and highlight their evolution and use over the years. 

A few of the skills students will learn

So, what are some the skills you will learn in this class? You will learn how to build a quatrefoil pattern and ogee pattern in Affinity designer. I will show you how to utilize the shape tools, pen tools and pencil tools to create simple and complex shapes in the vector program. Then, I will show you how I build my repeats with a live preview. 

This is more of an intermediate course as my goal is to highlight how to build these complex shapes in the app and not the entire design process from concept to final repeat pattern. If you are looking to learn the basics of Affinity Designer and how to design a repeat pattern from concept, to sketch to inking and final color repeat, I suggest taking my Surface Pattern Design Intensive course for beginners: Learn How to Create Surface Pattern Designs on the iPad with Affinity Photo + Affinity Designer.

This course is designed to give you all the technical skills you need to start designing quatrefoil and ogee patterns using the Affinity designer vector app on the ipad, but it doesn’t go into as much detail as the surface pattern design intensive course. It will get you comfortable with the tools and studios in the app as well as familiarize you with some of the layer effects, geometry functions and shape options. 

Make sure to check out the class resources for a resource guide on surface pattern design, You can check out the Pinterest board with ogee and quatrefoil inspiration here: https://pin.it/7MYosZb

1. Class Intro: Hi everyone, welcome to my latest class. I'm jealous on and I'll be the one guiding you through this creative course. I'm a freelance graphic designer, illustrator, and educator based out of the Midwest and I run Bella and Sophia creative studio. If you want to learn more about me, check out my YouTube panel. They're free landslides to get a behind the scenes view of the work that I do as a freelancer and the work that goes into making classes just like this one. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge here on Skillshare and over on YouTube as I think is a really accessible way to learn new skills this month. To add to my growing library of surface pattern design related courses, I wanted to share my process for creating quatro foil and OG style surface pattern repeats using Affinity Designer. I really enjoy creating pattern repeats on my iPad as a fine, It's really convenient workflow that allows me to work on the go with very minimal tools. So what is this class about? In this class, I will walk you through my process and how to make a CAPTCHA foil and an OG style seamless repeating pattern using Affinity Designer. Before we jump into the whole design process though, I will share some of the historical relevance of these patterns for inspiration and highlight their evolution and use over the years. So what are some of the skills you will learn in this class? You will learn how to build a quatro foil pattern and an OG pattern with Affinity Designer, I will show you how to utilize the shape tools, the pen tools and pencil tools to create simple and complex shapes with the vector program. Then I will show you how I build my repeats with a live preview. This is more of an intermediate course adds my goal is to highlight how to build these complex shapes in the app and not the entire design process from concept to final repeat pattern. If you're looking to learn the basics of Affinity Designer and how to design a repeat pattern from concept to sketch to inking and then final color repeat. I really suggest taking my surface pattern design intensive course for beginners. Learn how to create surface pattern designs on the iPad with Affinity Photo and affinity designer. I'll make sure to include the link in the class description box to class. So this course is designed to give you all of the technical skills that you need to start creating and designing quatro foil and OG patterns using the Affinity Designer vector app on the iPad. But it doesn't go into as much detail as that surface pattern design intensive course that I mentioned. We'll get you comfortable with the tools and the studios and the app as well as familiarize you with some of the layer effects, geometry functions in the shape options. Make sure you also check out the class resources for a resource guide on surface pattern design as well. Some other elements that I think will be helpful to you as you work through this course, also include links to a Pinterest board with OGM quatro foil inspiration as well as access to the project templates. If you want to check out some of my surface pattern design and other design and illustration work. Make sure you check out my shop at Etsy alone, Sophia creative. You can also check out my website at www. Dot Bella Sophia creative.com. Or you can find me over on Spoonflower. 2. Course Project + Tools: So when it comes to the tools that you will need today, all you need to take this class is an iPad and an Apple pencil with the following apps installed Affinity Designer. So for your class project, we will be creating two seamless repeats. They will both be designed and affinity designer. One repeat will be the quatro foil salary beat, and then the other API will be the OG salary p. So when it comes to the deliverables that I suggest you upload to the class project gallery. I would say when you're ready, upload any of your process work that you would like as well as your final patterns. And I would really just focus on uploading a JPEG, the final patterns to quatro foil pattern and you're OG patterns. So who is this class geared towards? This class is geared towards anyone interested in learning how to create quatro foil and ODU cell surface pattern designs using Affinity Designer. Whether you're a seasoned pro and surface pattern design or someone just learning how to use the software. I tried to ensure that you will feel comfortable in the app. And in the course. I know that surface pattern design can sometimes seem daunting when it comes to the whole tech side of things. Before this class, I wanted to take it slow and show you how you can streamline and complete your whole process, right in the Affinity Designer app. And then also highlight some new cells of decorative elements that you can add to your surface pattern motif inspirations. I'm really looking forward to creating with you today. Let's get started. 3. The History of Ogee + Quatrefoil Patterns: So before we jump into actually designing these patterns, I wanted to highlight the history of the OG and quatro foil style of patterns. So first let's start off with the OG. So what is the OG? And OD is a distinctive pattern with two continuous S-shaped curves, narrowing and widening. These two curves basically form a perfect oval before repeating out gracefully. They're very much known for their pleasing flow and rhythm. And this layout is extremely versatile as a design element. In fact, designers from cultures all around the globe have been using it in patterns. They can be modern and sleek when used in apparel, large-scale and elaborate and home furnishing fabrics are really beautifully decorative and ornate on architectural molding. The old GM particular is an interesting and subtle way to introduce Moroccan style elements to any new or existing design style from traditional to modern. But again, when pulling from additional cultures though I do think it is important that you read up, learn about it, understand it, and then offer your perspective in that style. So when we're looking at the history of the OG style, this shape can trace its history all the way to ancient Persia. And the tomb of Cyrus the Great. Lg is a curved shape consisting of a concave arc and vertical ends. And as a pattern, it almost has like an onion shape and an architecture that's called an OG arc composed of two oh geez, mirrored left to right and then meeting at an apex. This shape has a really deeply rooted history and was heavily used in the Gothic style the 14th and 15th centuries. Although it is a common characteristic of European architecture, it was first introduced from the Middle East. So here are just some style OG apply when we're looking at it in kind of like a fabric or textile perspective, vector artwork and then other styles of more ornate creations using kind of like a medallion motif with floral elements and plant life elements incorporated into it. Now that we understand more about the OG style and the history behind it, Let's jump into the quatro foil. So the quatro foil is asymmetrical shape with war lobes are foils of equal size. The quatro foil is the ancient symbol for good luck. The word is derived from Latin roots and it means basically four leaves. So many think of a four leaf clover. That's essentially the style and the overall shape of this pattern. So Kwok Torr means four and folium means leaf. You put them together and you have quatro foil. It looks like a simplified flower with four petals are four interconnected circles that slightly overlap. It shape is old and the name comes from the Latin meaning four leaves. So when you see one, it might seem familiar because it's commonly used in art, design and architecture. So now let's talk a little bit more about the history of the quatro foil. The quatro foil enjoyed its peak popularity during the Gothic and Renaissance eras. I think both of these styles and patterns are very much influenced by this era. And it's most commonly found as tracery, mainly in gothic architecture. We're quatro foil often may be seen at the top of a Gothic arch, sometimes filled with stained glass. Although the design is often referred to as of Islamic origin, there are examples of its use that preceded the birth of Islam by almost 200 years. The monastery of studios in Constantinople was built in for 62 AD, soon after Christianity became legal in the Byzantine era. And the arches seen are the product of taking a regular quatro foil and dividing it in half. So it's often found in art, architecture and religious symbolism. The ornamentation of the quatro foil continues to delight those who look at it and are inspired by it. Design detail that is embedded within the Greek revival, Gothic, and Renaissance periods. Its distinctive shape in ornamentation and jurors to embellish our world with his beautiful harmony and symmetry. It's very much a decorative framework of symmetry of four lobes. It radiate from a common center. And when we look at how we're going to build it, this kind of all makes sense as we work through creating it within the software. So when we look a little bit more deeply into the history, the quadrate flown similar arabesque shapes appear in Morris and Islamic structures in Spain, Turkey, and all across the Middle East, dating back before the Renaissance, the quatro foil presumably made its way to Europe by way of the Silk Road. It was carved and printed on small and easily transportable objects has just carpets and velvet and silks brought into Europe as luxury objects. Quadrupole motifs, especially in three-dimensional objects, require really high degree of mathematical skill and craftmanship to successfully execute creating them. And so as a quatro foil made its way to Europe, it was incorporated into things like buildings that are known for grandeur cathedrals and things like that. Quadrat foils were often used in tracery, the stone frames around stained glass as well. And here are just some examples of the quatro foil motif applied to be as simple as the four lobes outline in a specific color on a colorful background. You can apply a fax to it like a watercolor style, and you can add additional elements to the lobes. Or it could be as detailed as you see all the way on the left here, with additional elements intertwined and applied and created so that you get this beautiful motif within these gorgeous tiled. So now that we understand the history, and it's not by any means all of the history, but a good amount of it. Let's jump into actually creating some of these elements. 4. Setting up Your Artboard: Now that we know the history behind these patterns, Let's jump into creating them. So before we actually design any of the patterns that we're going to first concentrate on creating the shapes. So let's go into our Affinity Designer app and launch it. And we're going to set up a new artboard. We're going to go to the upper right hand corner, select the plus, and then select New Document. And then on the left-hand side under document, we wanna make sure that our units of measurement are pixels. So if you have anything aside from that, just click on where unit of measurement is over in AMA, it says points. And then I'm going to click on it, get this drop-down menu and I'm going to select pixels. And then I'm gonna go to my dimensions on the right-hand side, I'm going to change my width and my height to 2000 pixels for each one. I'm going to change my DPI to 300. And then I want to make sure I have transparent background selected. And then I want to create an art board so that we can create multiple shapes in one file. And then I'm gonna hit Okay. 5. Creating Quatrefoil Shapes Part 1: Once I've created my art board, this is what my screen will look like. So what I want to do is we're going to create three shapes. So I want to have three art boards. So if we go into our menu options in the upper left-hand side and what sizes if you click on this little question mark in the lower right, you'll be able to see the names of all of your tools, all of your studios, and all of your menus. So we're going to go up to the document menu, add it. We're going to select our boards. And then you'll get this little pop-up at the bottom. And what we want to keep our preset as is document. So essentially whatever we add is going to be the exact same size as our current document. And that it will hit the little plus icon to the right where it says insert art board. And we'll do that twice. And it will give us three art boards that are the exact same size as our first original one. So the nice thing with these quatro foil style patterns is that they're actually really simple to create. The shapes are really simple. We're going to be utilizing the geometry functions within our app to create them. And we'll simply use the shape tool to basically design the elements. So the first one I want to create is a really simple one based on circles. So we're going to go to the left-hand side. We're going to select our shape tool over here. Yours might be a triangle, triangle or square, or it might be something else. But if you tap on it and hold, you'll see a pop-up that gives you all of these other options. What we wanna do is select the Ellipse. What we're going to do is make sure our Magnetic option is selected in the lower left-hand corner. And then we're just going to take our Apple Pencil and we're going to drag to create a perfect circle. And what you'll find is if you put your finger on your art board, it will give you a perfect circle. If you're having any type of trouble creating the shape, I'm going to change the color and my right-hand studio, my color studio, it's right at the top, just so that it's easier for you to see. I'm going to change it to black and then I'm going to remove the fill. And I'm just going to create an outline for now. So you'll notice that have both a color fill and a color in my outline. So making sure my fill is selected, I'm going to go to this little circle with a blue line through it. And it will remove my film. And then I'm going to make sure that my stroke is selected and I'm going to go down to my stroke studio on the right-hand side, which is right, It's the option right under your color studio. And right now I have a zero-point stroke. And what I wanna do is take my Apple pencil or your stylus, whatever it is that you're working with. And I'm going to select the width option and then I'm going to drag to the right to increase that size. You can also just click on the actual measurement and manually enter something in. But for now, just so that it's easier to see, I'm going to use this 4.6 width. And then I'm going to go to my move tool, which is the arrow, the first arrow option on the left-hand side. And I'm going to select my ellipse that I've created here. And then I'm going to move it. And with that magnetic option, what you'll see is that these lines kind of pop up that show you right where the center is. For your horizontal and for your vertical options. So right with the green and the red line kind of overlap each other, then you'll know you're right in the center. We're going to keep that in mind for later. What we wanna do first though, is multiply this circle three more times. So we're going to copy it and duplicate it. So we're going to make sure that it's still selected and you know, it's selected because you'll have it outlined in blue. We're going to go up to our edit menu, which is the three dot options. And we're going to select Duplicate. And we're going to do that three times total so that we have three circles. So then we're gonna go to our move tool. And we're going to move this first circle right to the top of it, the second circle down. And the idea is just to move these elements apart and then we can begin to drag them in to create the shape that we're looking for. So the idea is that each of the lines should just barely touch. So we're going to take our first circle at the top using those magnetic lines. And we want to make sure that it's right on the edge of the bottom circle. And then we're going to take the right-hand circle and we're going to drag it into the center. And we want to make sure it touches that central line. And then we're going to take the left circle and we're going to drag it in just so that it touches the other circle to the right, but that it also matches up with that center line. And you should basically have a shape that looks something like this. And I don't know if you guys have ever used the spiral, spiral graph. Spiral graphs. That's kind of what this shape reminds me of. So if you have something that looks like that, you are on the right track. So what we wanna do next to kind of create that outline shape of the quatro foil is we'll select our move tool and then we're going to drag across our art board so that we select all of the four circles in this art board. And then what we're gonna do is we're going to go up to our edit settings here or Edit menu. And we're going to go down to where it says geometry. So what we wanna do is select, Add. And it will basically all of the shapes that we created Adam together and create this outline. And this is the first shape within the quatro foil options that we'll be creating. So it's kind of like a kind of a clover shaped that whole idea of the four leaf clover. This is a very prominent shape that you're seeing in a lot of these patterns. You can also then go into your stroke menu or your Stroke Studio and you can increase or decrease your width. I'm going to increase it just a bit. And then you can also go in and change the color. Now. Now I'm going to keep it black though. And then let's move on to creating the next shape. 6. Creating Quatrefoil Shapes Part 2: Now that we're done creating this shape, we can move on to our next art board by just taking our fingers and dragging to the left, you can also zoom in and zoom out by utilizing the pinch to zoom. So if you pinch in, it's going to zoom out. And then if you pinch out, it's going to zoom in and get closer to your screen. So let's move over to our board to, and basically the process is going to be relatively the same except we're going to create this shape but with like the barbs. And we're going to utilize the circles again. And then also include some rectangles to create the barbs. So to do that again, we're just going to go down to our ellipse tool. We want to make sure that art board 2 is selected. And I'll zoom in a bit so you can see we wanna make sure we have our ellipse tool selected as well. And then we want to make sure in our color studio that we have a color selected in our stroke. And then if we tap on the color studio, it'll pull it back in. And then again, you can just tap your finger down to create a perfect circle if you're having any issues creating a circle without it looking wonky. And then to undo something, you can just double tap your screen. So I'm going to create a circle. And then I'm gonna move it up a bit. And then again, utilizing the magnetic options where you see where your central lines are. And then I'm gonna go to my edit menu and I'm going to select Duplicate three more times. And it's going to duplicate it there more time. So I have four total circles and I'm just going to drag these out and then down, and then we'll start to pull them in together so we wanna make sure this is at the central line horizontally and at the center line vertically. And you'll see the green and the red cross each other. And then we're going to take the left circle and just do the same thing we can, making sure it's at the center line or densely and then at the center line vertically. And that's going to basically overlap it right with the right one. And then take this top circle and pull it down so that it meets right at the center. And then take this bottom circle and pull it up. So it meets right at the center. And again, because we have that magnetic option selected, it does a great job of pulling everything to the grid. And again, we created this kind of like spiral graph looking element. Next we wanna do is go into our shape tool, select a rectangle. And then the idea is to kind of create little barbs that stick out from where these petals pretty much kind of meat. So I'm just going to create a square shape. And then making sure it's right at the center line and across vertically and horizontally. And then I'm going to select all of them. I'm going to select my move tool and then I'm going to drag across all of the elements on our board too, so they're all selected. You'll see that they're all selected because they're all highlighted in blue. And then I'm going to go up to my edit menu again, go down to geometry and select, Add. And it will create the barbed shape for this. And again, you can increase or decrease your stroke. You can change the color. You can also increase the size as well. And again, if you want to make sure that it's within proportions, just put your finger down as you're dragging so that it's right in proportion and it doesn't look wonky or anything like that. And then you can just move it so that it's centered again. So that's the barb shape. 7. Creating Quatrefoil Shapes Part 3: And then the last shape that I want to create with S is something a little bit more elemental. I'm, so we'll still be using the circles and the rectangle, but we're also going to be creating with some line segments as well. Well, let's first start with our ellipse tool. And we're going to create a perfect circle on our art board three. And then I'm just gonna kinda move it so that it minds up to the center ready? And then I'm going to go into my edit menu and I'm going to select Duplicate. And then I'm just going to drag that over to the right and make sure it lines up, seeing the green and red lines kind of intersect, let it go. I'm going to tap out of it and then I'm gonna go back to my shape tool and select the rectangle shape. And the idea is we want to create a rectangle that kind of lines up along the middle and then create some bars at the top. So what we're gonna do is just create a shape. And then looking to see where the green line kinds of, kind of shows up here so that we know we're right in the center. And then same with this side, just making sure that it lines up with the center of this circle. We'll go to our move tool and then we'll select everything. You'll know everything is selected because it'll be outlined in blue. And then we're gonna go to our edit menu again and we're going to select, Add, and it creates the first part of our shape. What we're going to be doing is creating a line segment with a pen tool, keeping in mind our middle point here. So we're gonna take our pen tool, which is on the left-hand side. We want to make sure we create our first mark right on the corner here. And then we want to make sure we bring it to the center line. So and if it doesn't go right on the center, That's okay. We can adjust before we duplicate this line, but we want to sit there and we want to click on our first corner here and then go to the center and we'll see the green line kind of pop-up. And then we want to adjust our node by dragging upward to kinda create like this curved line segment. And then what we can do is just adjust, making sure everything's on the green vertical line here by just clicking on our move tool and then tapping on that let line segment. And then you'll see that it kind of creates that green line for us, which means it's perfectly centered where it we need it to be. And then making sure that it's still selected and our Move Tool selected, we'll go to our edit menu and we're going to select Duplicate. And then what we wanna do is go to the right-hand side. We're gonna go to our studio, to me want to go to our Transform Studio. So our transform studio is the third icon from the bottom, and it looks like a square with a quarter cut out of it. And we are going to, we're going to utilize the flip and rotate and we're just going to basically flip and rotate it vertically by clicking on this third icon here and it flips it for us. And then we can just move it to the right and then make sure everything lines up. And then we want to select both elements by just holding our finger down and tapping on the next line segment. And we're going to select Group. And then we're gonna go back up to Edit and we're going to duplicate this again. And then instead of flipping it vertically, we're going to flip it horizontally. And it's just going to turn it upside down. And then we're just going to drag this down. And you can keep your finger on your art board to keep everything lined up. And then you'll see everything kind of snaps into place. It's the beauty of using the Magnetic option. So now what we wanna do is select everything on. Then we're going to go into our edit tool. What we wanna do is group everything. And then what we also wanna do is then convert to curves. Because what we're going to need to do is delete these lines segments in the center. So to easily do that, we need to convert to curves first. And then we are going to basically select our nodes and break them so that we can delete them individually. Now to break apart this line segment here so we can delete it. We're going to select our Node tool, which is the second arrow down on the left-hand side. And we're going to select just double tapping to select this center part. And then what we're gonna do is we're going to click on break. And then we'll just kind of go in and add additional nodes to break up this line so that it's easy to start deleting sections. And then as I break up the lines, what you'll see is each little section is kinda of like it's created its own line segment. And then we can just hit the little trash can and then just select elements as we go. And if you notice that there's still sections that are still connected to, keep adding nodes and then selecting break. And then if it's connected anywhere, you want to make sure you click on the last node in that section that's connecting the two pieces so that you can break it from that piece and you can delete it individually. So now I can just go through and just delete sections as I go. And then I go back in and select the areas and then I can just start deleting them individually. And then it'll delete that whole section to gives the shape that we want. And then I need to do the exact same thing on this bottom line here. So just go to my node tool, click on my end nodes. Select break in this bottom pop up, select my other end tool, select break from the bottom pop-up and then add nodes to the central line, hit break, break, break. And then I should be able to start deleting this section. And then just selecting those areas. And then just hitting a little garbage can on the lower left-hand side. And it'll delete all of those elements. And now I've created this ornamental quatro foil. So what I wanna do now is just select everything and then just go into my Edit menu, which is the three.me and then select group, and it'll group it altogether and I can move it as one. And then I just want to make sure that it's centered and it is. And then I'll be able to utilize this to create my pattern. 8. Setting Up Your Live Preview: So now that we have these shapes and we can begin to utilize them in a pattern. So let's go back out into our gallery and we'll set up a new file to actually build the pattern. Now that we're done creating the actual shapes for this repeat, what we need to do is setup the actual live preview repeat. So you can see what the final pattern is going to look like as we build it. So we're gonna go to the upper right-hand corner, hit the plus sign and we're gonna select new document. And we're going to change it from points, our measurements in a document section from points to pixels. And we're just going to create a, we're going to create a square that is 2000 by 2000 pixels with a DPI of 300. We want to make sure we are transparent background selected and we want to hit Create art board. And then we're going to select, okay. So now that we've created our art board, essentially what we're trying to do is create a live preview so that whatever we put on one artboard will help us see our final repeat an action on the second art board though we're going to create. So our original artboard is 2000 by 2000 pixels. So what we wanna do is add a new artboard that is double-dot insights. So we're gonna do is go into our documents menu and we are going to select our boards. And then at the very bottom, what you'll notice is there's a little pop-up so we wanna make sure we keep our preset as document. And then what we're gonna do is just hit Plus to insert the artboard. And then we're going to go into our Transform panel so that we can increase the size of this art board. So we'll go to the Transform panel, which is that little square with the quarter cut out of it. And then if we look at our dimensions, we'll see our width and our height are at 2000 by 2000, but we want to double that. So we're going to change it to 4000 by 4000 and then hit Okay, so now what we wanna do is select our move tool, click out of our board too. And that we're going to go into our layers panel and select Artboard 1. You know, it's selected because it will be highlighted in blue. And we want to tap on the rectangle tool. And we're going to drag our stylus across our board one so that we can create a rectangle. I'm going to change this from the gray color that I currently have two, blue just so that it's easy to see. And then I'm gonna make sure I have magnetics still selected. So on the lower left-hand side in that corner above your trash bin, the magnetic tool, we want to make sure that that is highlighted in blue. And basically this allows us to create shapes and elements that snapshot or a grid. And if you need to for having any issues getting it to snap to the grid, you could go into our Transform panel here on the right-hand side transform studio and you can adjust the dimensions manually. So now what we wanna do is create a symbol. So we're going to go into this symbol menu, making sure that the rectangle is still selected, we need to go into the symbol menu, which looks like a circle with a Mercedes Benz logo just like curved. The easiest way for me to describe what this looks like. It's also the seventh element up from the bottom. And what we wanna do is add symbol from selection. So we're going to click on the little hamburger menu and select add symbol from selection. And then what we wanna do then is copy this and we're going to paste this symbol onto our board to four times so that it creates the four segments of this full repeating pattern. So we're gonna go into our Edit menu and we are going to select Copy. And then we're going to select Artboard 2 and our Layers menu. And you'll note selected because it'll be highlighted in blue. And then we are going to go to the Edit menu again, and we're going to tap Paste. And we're gonna do this four times total. And then what we wanna do is we want to put those four blocks and the four corners of our board too. So we're going to make sure that we have our Move Tool selected. And then we're just going to drag this first one to the right so that it snaps to the upper right-hand corner. We're gonna go back to the original selection and drag down so that it snaps to the lower left corner. Then we're gonna go back to the original selection again and drag to the lower right-hand corner. And again, you'll see that everything is all in place when you notice the green and red lines are all kinda like intersecting. And you could also go back into your transform tool and just double-check your positions as well if you want to make sure it's exactly where it needs to be. So the lower right-hand corner should be 2000 by 2000. The lower left hand corner should be 0. By 2000. The upper left-hand corner should be 000, and the upper right-hand quarter should be 2000 by 0. Now what we wanna do is just test this art board so that we make sure everything is working appropriately. The big thing you should keep in mind though, is that all of the blue elements that we've created should have, or all of the new squares that we have created should have this like orange glowing line next to them. So what we're gonna do is go onto our board of one and we want to make sure we select the symbol. And basically everything that we do is gonna go on art board 1 and will show up on Artboard tool for us. So I'm just going to select a vector brush tool really quickly. And I'm going to change my color and the color studio. I'm going to remove the fill and the change the color from this blue or from this black color to a white color and the stroke. And then I'm gonna go to my brushes menu. And I'm just going to pick something that's already there. I'm going to pick this basic dry acrylic. So once I've selected my brush, I'm gonna make sure I have this symbol rectangle actually selected on art board 1. And the idea is that whatever I draw on this artboard will show up on our port 2. So making sure that that rectangle is selected, then I can go in and create whatever I want. And it should pop up on the right-hand side on Artboard 2. So that's how you know that your, your actual file is setup properly and is working. I'm going to go in and select this and just hit my little garbage can on the lower left-hand side and delete this. So what I suggest is that you can save this as a master doc and then basically copy it every single time. So you can go back out into your gallery. And you can rename this by clicking on here little hamburger menu in your gallery. And you can select Rename. And then you can change it from untitled. And if you get this little pop-up, you just have to hit it and then it'll pull up your keyboard for you. And then you can delete everything and rename it. And then what's nice is that you can go in and you can click on that hamburger menu again and then you can duplicate it. And then you can use this as many times as you want over and over for new patterns. 9. Creating the Quatrefoil Repeat pt. 1: So let's just go into the updated file. And whatever the thing to keep in mind is that whatever you put on the left-hand side has to be exactly in the exact same place on the right-hand side. And then whatever you put on your lower quadrant has to be exactly on the same, in the same spot on your upper quadrant. So whatever you put on it on your edges, they have to be in the exact same placement. I know that sounds a little complicated, but I'll show you how we do this. So going back out into our gallery, will go into the file where we have created all of our shapes. And we can just select the first one we want to work with. I'm going to select this more ornamental quadrat boil, and I'll just highlight it by clicking on it with my move tool. I'm going to go into my Edit menu. I'm going to select Copy. And then I'm going to go into my new template and I'm going to go into my edit menu and I'm going to select pace. I'm going to have to resize this obviously. But like I said before, what we want to make sure we do is that whatever we put on this side has to be in the exact same place on the side. You could be you can make it as simple as just keeping it this size and then lining everything up and putting it on the left and the right and the top and the bottom. Or you can resize this so that we could fit two by just pulling in your edges. And if you notice that when you resize it, your stroke kind of increases, you can just adjust it using your Stroke Studio panel over here. So I resize this so that I can fit two of these in on one side. So I'm going to move it to one edge. And if you notice that thing is popping up in your preview, again, just make sure you drag this pasted layer so that it's right on top of your blue rectangle on art board 1. So I'm just going to test my sizing here by selecting this first element, going into my edit menu, selecting Duplicate, and then dragging it up and it's not exactly small enough to fit two. So I'm going to delete this, I'm going to resize it down just a bit more. And then I'm going to go back into my Edit menu, select Duplicate, and then just drag it up. And that fits nicely. And then I'm gonna make sure I select both of these. And then I'm going to go into copy in my edit menu. And then I'm going to select pace because it'll paste it right on top. And then we want to go into our transform studio on the right-hand side. And then what we wanna do is we want to make sure that we have what's on the left in the exact same place as what's on the right. So the easiest way to do this is in the transform menu. We're gonna go to our position. We're going to select the exposition because we're going from left to right. When you're going from top to bottom or bottom to top, you're going to select y. And since we're going from left to right, we're going to do plus we're adding. So we're going to select the x position and then we're going to hit plus. And then we're going to type in 2000 because that is the width of this original square. And then we're going to hit, Okay? And you'll see it moves it exactly to where this position is on the right-hand side. Now what we wanna do is just take one of these ornamental quadrat foils and I'm going to duplicate it again by going into my Edit menu. And then I'm just going to play around with the placement of these just so I can see what it looks like. As I place these, I like personally working my edges and creating my edges first and then filling in the center. But you could do another way if you feel more comfortable. But I'm just going to create my edges first and then fill in the center. So once I've duplicated this, then what I'm gonna do is go back into my Edit menu. And if you want to move the transform studio back and just click on it and it'll pull it off of your workspace. You can see better. Then I'm going to go into my three.me, which my edit menu. And I'm going to select Copy. And then I'm gonna select Paste. I'm going to go back into my Transform menu. And since I'm going from the top to the bottom, I'm going to be editing my y position, so I'm just going to click in it. And then since I'm going from top to bottom, I'm just going to select plus 2000. If I was going from bottom to top, I would select negative or minus 2000 and then hit Okay, and it'll pull it down exactly where it needs to be in. You're starting to see, I'm going to pull in the transform studio here. You're starting to see your repeat begin to build. So what I wanna do now is basically duplicate this again and then I'm going to pull it over so that I have something filling the right-hand side. And then I'm going to go into my Edit menu again, select Copy, and then hit paste. And then I'm gonna go into my transform studio again, go to my y position. And then I'm gonna hit negative or minus 2000, and it'll pull it up. Let's pull in the transform studio again so you can start to see this is building the overall traditional kind of Moroccan sound motif that we see with these kinds of quadrat foils. Now we're gonna go back into Artboard 1. We want to go into Edit menu. We're going to select Duplicate. And then I'm just going to move this and start to kind of fill in this center area. And then I'm going to duplicate this again and kind of drag it down. And then I'm going to hit Duplicate once more. And if you notice that you kind of like all of your elements are de-selected, you can just double and triple click until you selected, or you could just go into your, your Layers menu and select the element there. Once I've selected it, I'm gonna go into my Edit menu, select duplicate again. And then I'm going to drag it so that it's in between these sections here. And then I'm going to duplicate that once more. And I'm gonna do the exact same thing and just drag it left though. And if you're noticing things that aren't quite lining up, That's okay. What we can do is just adjust the center ones and move them over a bit. And then we can adjust this one and move it over a bit. And then we can move over to this side and see how this starts to kind of line up and you can adjust as you see fit. You could also go through and revise the color of these as well. Or you can turn some off to see what they look like and see if you like it better without. You can also revise the color. If you go into the group or into the rectangle and select all of them by clicking on the first one and then dragging right to select the rest of them. You can add a layer effect, which will allow you to change the color. So we can just go into our FX Studio. And then we're going to select Color Overlay. And then we want to click on it. And then you'll get this little pop-up at the bottom. You can keep your blend mode normal and then it can go to color. And you can adjust it so that it's a different color as well. The other thing to keep in mind is that say you like this shape or you like the layout of this, but you don't like how these Center shapes are kind of filling in the space. You can go in and revise them by selecting your each of the elements individually and just kind of revising the shape a bit, resizing them so that they're smaller if they need to be. And then keep in mind whatever you do to one. You should likely copy that one and utilize that in the same kind of placement so it feels cohesive. So I'm going to duplicate this one. I'm going to go in and delete this one. And then I'm going to select that new one that a revised and kind of drag it over to the center here. And I think that creates a little bit more of a nice kind of feeling in terms of the overall shape and how this is filled in. And then you can see what the final pattern looks like as you're building it. So that's how to work with this quatro foil. I'm going to actually show you how to work with some of these other shapes as well. And then we'll jump into creating the OG. 10. Creating the Quatrefoil Repeat pt. 1 + Exporting: So let's go into our layers. And I'm going to go back out into my gallery. I'm going to go to my original shapes and I'm going to select this four leaf clover one. I'm just going to go into my Edit menu. I'm going to hit Copy and then I'm going to go out into the gallery, go into my template, and I'm going to go into my Edit menu once more that three.me. And I'm going to select Paste. And we see this is pasted nicely. Everything is popping up as it should be. Wherever we move this, it'll move. And again, what we could do is just keep it simple and just have it as is when it comes to the size of this. Or you can resize it as you need. I'm gonna keep it simple for this one and just keep it at this 100% scale. And I've already duplicated this one time. So I'm going to go over to my AKS position. And I'm going to hit plus 2000 and it's going to pull it over to the right for me. And then I'm going to duplicate this. And then with that still selected, I'm going to go into my three.menu and hit duplicate again. And then I'm going to drag it down to the bottom edge. And then I'm gonna go into my three.me with that still being selected, I'm gonna hit Copy and then Paste. And the reason I do this is so that it literally paste it right in front on top of the original element so that it doesn't move. And then I'm gonna go to my y-coordinate and I'm going to select minus 2000 and then hit Okay, and it'll drag it exactly where I need it to be. And now we can see what this looks like in terms of the repeat pattern. So what I like to do now is show you how to export this so that you can utilize this pattern and create any kind of background. What I suggest you do is go into our board one here and we're going to turn off the color. And what we wanna do is just export Artboard 1. So what we'll do is with our board one selected, we'll go to our document menu and we're going to select Export. And then what we want to export this as a PNG that will create a transparent background. Everything else can stay the same. You can update the file name if you need to. I'm going to change the area though from whole document to art board 1. And then I'm gonna hit, okay. And I'm just going to save this in my Affinity Designer file. Hit Save. And then I'm gonna go back out into my gallery. So while I'm in my gallery, what I'm going to do is hit the plus icon in the upper right-hand corner. I'm going to select new document and I'm just going to change this from whatever current size it is to something that is kind of like a print, print size. So I'm going to make sure my, my measurement are changed from points or whatever it is currently to inches. And then I'm going to change my width to eight by 8.5 and my height to 11. So it's like a paper size and then DPI should be 300. And then I'm just going to hit Create art board. You don't have to worry about transparency. And then hit Okay. And this is our art board. And what I wanna do is just create a rectangle on top of it, making sure it fills the whole space. And then I'm going to change it to that it doesn't have a color. So I'm gonna go into my color studio. I'm going to change my fill from whatever it is to just nothing and then change my, my stroke so that it's nothing as well. And then I wanna go down to the full tool. And this isn't like the paint drop, like the paint bucket tool. This is on the full tool that allows you to change different file types. To at the bottom you'll see this pop-up. What we wanna do is change the type from none to bitmap. And then once you do that, it should pop up with your menu options. And then you can go back to wherever that original file that you saved. I saved mine in Affinity Designer. So I'm gonna open up that file and then I'm going to scroll through to find it. Here it is, pattern template and the select that. And then you'll see these little arms. You can adjust the size of your pattern and the scale and the rotation of it with these little arms. So you can see what it looks like at a 100 percent and then you can see what it looks like scaled down. And then you can actually go back to your rectangle tool. And then you can duplicate the original rectangle and then you can change the color. And then if this happens like what you're seeing here, all you have to do that just means that the rectangle I created is on top of my original pattern. So I just have to go into my layer studio here on the right-hand side, click on it and drag it underneath. And also with this pattern, you can also edit and add a fax on top of it. So you can change the color or with that layer selected. What you'll wanna do is go into the FX Studio and then you can toggle on or off different elements. In this case, we want to toggle on the color overlay. You'll know a ton because it'll be outlined in blue. And then you want to click on where it says Overlay. And then you'll see this little pop-up at the very bottom. You can keep your blend mode normal. And then you can adjust the opacity and you can change the colors well here. And that's how you basically create the pattern with these quatro foils and how you can export that tile so that it can be utilized on final artwork. 11. Creating the Ogee Shape: Now that we're done creating the quadrat foils, let's jump into the OG, which I think is actually kind of a bit more of a simpler style to create. We just have to get used to working with the different elements in Affinity Designer. To what we're gonna do is set up a new document. We're gonna go to the upper right-hand side in our gallery. We're going to select plus. And then we're going to hit new document. And we're going to create a document that is 2000 by 2000 pixels. So we want to change our document measurement to pixels and then update the width to 2 thousand. And then the height to 2000 or DPI to 300. And then keep transparent background checked. And then we don't have to worry about creating an art board because we're just creating one element and then just hit Okay, so now that we've created our new document, this is what are our portable look like. So what we wanna do is go into our layer studio on the right-hand side has the plus icon and hit the plus icon and we're going to select Vector Layer. And you'll see a new layer has been created. And what we also wanna do is turn on our grid so that it's easier for us to see. And this will be paramount in creating the shape that we need to create the kind of organic s-shape that this pattern style is known for. So we are going to go into our document options here or document menu, and we're going to select grid. And then at the very bottom, you'll notice that this little pop-up will appear. So you wanna make sure Show grid is selected. And then our grid mode, we want it to be standard. And then we want to change our grid color from gray or whatever it is to something brighter so that it's easier to see. I'm going to pick kinda of like this pink color. And then, uh, what I wanna do is increase our spacing. So to do that, all you have to do is either click on it and you can manually increase it, or you can just drag left or right with your stylus over the spacing section. So if you drag right, it'll, will increase it. If you drag a left, it'll decrease it. So I think I'm going to want my speed things to be about 200. And if you find that you can't get it exactly, I would just click on it and then just enter to a 100 and then hit Okay. And then I think this is good. So now we can just exit out of there by clicking on any of the other tools. And for this specific shape that we're going to be creating, we're going to be utilizing the pen tool. And the reason why turned on the grid was just so that we can create segments that are equidistant and that are the same in terms of the height and how far apart they are. So once we've created our grid, then we can go in and work with our pen tool. So we're going to select your pen tool and you can zoom in if you need to. And it doesn't really matter where you start. I would just suggest starting at one edge. And I'm going to zoom in just to let me know I'm on a cross-section of a point. And then I'm going to go up two. And then I'm going to go across three so that there's 12 full squares and then two halves. And then I'm going to click on that original point that I've created, or I'm going to click on the last point so that it can continue creating the shape. And then I'm gonna go to the next mid section and then down three again. And then this just ensures that the zigzag that I've created, these line segments are the same size and the same distance. Now what I wanna do is select my move tool. And I'm going to just drag over and make sure everything is selected. And then I'm gonna go down to my node tool, which is the arrow right beneath it. I'm going to select everything one more time with my node tool selected, making sure all of the points that I've created are highlighted in blue. And then I'm going to select Smooth. And what you'll see is that it creates this nice curve, kind of like S line. And then what I'd like to do is go back to my move tool. And then I'm going to go into transform. And I'm going to utilize the flip and rotate Options. And I'm just going to rotate this to the left so that it kind of gives me more of a 90 degree straight up and down angle. And then what we're gonna do is go into our document menu and we're going to select Duplicate. And then we're going to go back into this Transform menu. And we're going to select Flip. So that flips along the vertical axis. And right now kinda looks like a DNA. And then what we wanna do is just pull it so that all of the edges match. And then again, because we have magnetic selected, you'll see that everything kind of lines up along the center. And then what we can do is select everything. And we can group it. And then we can start to duplicate these as well if we need to or want to. And then you can select everything and you can resize. And then already you can see this OG kind of shape taking place are developing AI that we can adjust and move elements and copy and paste. 12. Creating the Ogee Repeat: But what we wanna do actually is utilize this shape and pull it into the live preview mode. So what I'm gonna do is with this first dot selected, I'm just going to hit, I'm going to go into my Edit menu. I'm going to select Copy. And then I'm gonna go back out into my gallery. And then I am going to go into my pattern template copy. And I'm just going to duplicate it again. And then I'm going to select it. And then it's going to launch for me. I'm going to go into my Edit menu and then I'm going to select Paste. And then you'll see that everything that I've created has been pasted and we can keep this this size. You can increase it, decrease it, whatever you'd like. I think I'm an increase. Their strokes just a bit. So it's easier to see. And then I'm going to keep it the size just because I like the size of this is. So I'm going to pull this all the way to my edges just like before. I like to create the edges first and then I can fill in the center. So I've pulled this over to my left edge and then I'm going to go into my Edit menu and then I'm gonna hit Duplicate. And then I'm going to go into my transform menu. And because this is the exact same template, it's 2000 square pixels. All I have to do is go into my exposition, click on it, and then hit plus 2000 because I'm moving to the right and then hit Okay. And it'll move it exactly where I need it to be. And then I'm going to duplicate this again. And then I'm just going to move the duplicated one over to the left. And then what I wanna do is copy this and then paste it. And then I want to move this down. And my y-coordinates plus 2000. And I just wanna make sure everything fits appropriately and it's fitting nicely. And it's okay if elements are kind of outside of your shape. Because again, whatever it is we see on the actual art board 1 is what we'll see on our board too. So anything outside of that, you can just delete it. And then I'm just gonna, I'm just gonna keep duplicating some of these elements so that I can fill up the rest of this. And if you find you're encountering any issues with placement, again, you can just resize things as needed. And then what I like to do also is group some of these elements and then duplicate them, drag them off to the side, and then see what I can do in terms of color. Because I think that's one of the big things that you'll see with cut, with this pattern style, the OG, it's usually you see something like a cat or you see different color formations. Or you also see things designed within this kind of like organic s-shape. So what I wanna do is change this from just lines to a fill with this as well to see what happened here. And if you notice you have like a white line in between, that just means you're going to have to go in and direct select the shape. And just kind of drag it in so that it fills the entire, entirety of the element. And then you can update the colors as well. And then you can resize these two so that they fit inside. And then you can go into your Layers panel. And what you'll wanna do is take the shapes if they're on top and bring them so that there would endure symbol group. And then you can drag them to the threat, the very bottom so that they are and the elements. And this just creates a fun kind of a fact where you're pulling in different colors. And then you can utilize Also the pen tool on this too. And create additional kind of ornamental touches. And then you can just update colors and revise the nodes as needed. So if you want to revise the node, say you wanted this to not just fill the center. You want to revise this just a bit because you don't like the curves or something. You can just go in and adjust the nodes as well here. And what I like about Affinity Designer on the iPad is that you can, I really like it fills up a bit more organic for me to adjust nodes and use the pen tool when I'm working on the iPad versus with a mouse. So also we want to make sure we pull this curve so that it is within the symbols elements. So that basically is included in all of these repeats here as well. So we can just sit there and we can just select this element and then just duplicated and place it wherever else we'd like. And then same thing with the yellow pieces. We can just duplicate them and then drag them where we'd like them. And then same thing with the red elements as well. We can just duplicate them and drag them where we need them. And then we can also select all of them at once by double-clicking on it and then holding your finger on your artboard so that you can select the rest. Or you can just go into your Layers menu and select them all there as well. Um, then what we're gonna do is select them and then we're going to make a copy of them. And then we're going to drag them over. Or then we're going to paste them and then we're going to drag them over and repeat this process again, duplicate and drag them over. And you can go in and adjust each 11 by one as well. Just so they're exactly where you'd like them to be. I'm that I'm going to duplicate these yellow pieces once more. I'm going to select the group in my layers. I'm going, I'm going to select Duplicate and then I'm just going to drag it over to the left here. And then what I wanna do is copy that and then paste it. And then I'm going to go into my transform studio. And then I'm gonna go to my exposition, and I'm going to select plus 2000. So it pulls it to the right for me. And then I can kinda start to see how this is playing out. I'm going to select those red pieces once more. And I'm going to make sure I'm grouping them as well. So I'm going to group these so that they're all grouped in each of their perspective layers. So once I've selected all of them, I'll go to my three.me and under operations and then a select group. And I'll do that once more for this last set. And that way it'll make it easier for me to copy them and pull them where I need them. Now I'm going to duplicate these. And then I'm going to drag them over. Making sure my move tool selected. I'm going to drag them over to the left here. And then I'm going to go into my Edit menu. I'm going to select Copy, and then I'm going to select Paste. And then I'm going to go back into my transform menu, go to my AKS position and hit plus 2000 again. And it'll drag it directly where I need it on my right. And then you get this fun, kind of like seventies inspired Dealing OG inspired print. I actually want to add some more detail on because it kinda feel like this kinda gives me like a flower vibe. Making sure nothing is selected. I'm going to change my color from a fill and go into my stroke and change it to a white. I'm going to go to my Brushes studio, which is red underneath my stroke studio. And I'm going to create some kind of organic feeling textured elements within each of these pieces here. So I'm just going to select the basic dry acrylic and then go into my layers making sure the correct area and I am Artboard 1 is selected. Now that I've updated the colors and whatnot, I'm going to go in with my brush, my vector brush tool. And then I can add little touches here and there. With a vector brush tool selected, you'll see that at the very bottom you can get a popup and you can adjust your width again just like what we did previously. You can either click on the width and adjust it manually or you can click and drag. If you drag to the right, it increases. If you drag to the left, it decreases. So I think I'm going to keep it at about 8.3. And then I'm just going to add some kinda of like wispy feeling strokes in here. And I don't need to do it for every single section. What's nice is that we can just kind of copy and paste. Thing we do want to keep in mind is making sure that it's going to show up on the right-hand side. And these are not. So I'm gonna go into my Layers panel. I'm going to select each of them. And then I'm going to group them by clicking on this little puzzle piece. And then I'm going to drag that group so that it is so that it's on top or still edits within the symbols element. That way everything kind of shows up together in the live preview. So once I've done that, I'm gonna make sure that that group is selected. I'm gonna go to my move tool. I'm going to click on my Layers, so that pulls it back in. And then I'm just going to go to Duplicate. And I'm going to move this wherever I need it. And then I'm going to duplicate it again and adjust as needed. And then what I'm gonna do with this one though, is I'm gonna go into my edit menu and I'm gonna hit Copy and then Paste so that I can place it exactly where I need it. On the other edge. I'm going to go into the Transform Tool. And then I'm going to select the exposition and then hit plus 2000 and then hit Okay. And then if we click on our Transform Studio, drag it back in. Click outside of our pattern board here. And we were starting to see everything kind of come into play. I'm going to select the white elements one more time and duplicate them and drag them right here to my center pieces with the last set. 13. Exporting the Ogee Repeat + Testing: And that's it. This is our final OG pattern. So just like what we did before, we can export this. And we're gonna do is we're gonna make sure our board one is selected. We're gonna go to our document menu and we're going to select Export. And then we're going to export this one as a JPEG, since it is, it does have a colored background. We are using different layers, or you can select PNG as well. I'm just going to select JPEG for now and I'm going to change the area from whole document to Artboard 1. And then I'm going to change this from pattern template 1, 2, pattern Template 2, and then hit return and then hit Okay. And then I'm going to save it in Affinity Designer in that folder I have and then hit Save. And then I'm gonna go back out into my tester file. And I'm going to go into the 8.5 by 11 file that we created. And I'm just going to create a new artboard by going into my document menu, selecting our boards, making sure my preset is still documents and then select Insert Artboard. And then just like we did before, I'm going to create a rectangle. And then I'm going to make it so that there is no color on the inside. And then I'm going to select my fill tool, and then I'm going to change my type from none to bitmap. And then the pop-up will come up so that I can find my file. And then I found it here at pattern template. And then those arms will allow me to adjust the scale and the orientation of this final piece. I'm just going to keep it straight up and down. But this is what it looks like in a final repeat format. I think it turned out really fun and bright and colorful and a gun, it's just a really easy way to utilize shapes and line segments when it comes to creating these kind of ornate looking element. But they're actually quite easy when you're using the shape tools and the Pen tool and the line segment tools in Affinity Designer. Okay, so that is it for this course. Let's jump out into the outro.
