An easy to follow process to create fun poly backgrounds. Thanks Benjamin for an awesome class!
Thanks for sharing a very clever and easy to use technique. Not sure if you pointed out what version of Illustrator you're using, but it might be useful as the gradient tool works differently in older versions.
