In this class, we will learnÂ how to use a geometric grid made up of nested squares to:

• establish a decorative patternâ€™s unit of design
• set the patternâ€™s unit of repetition, and
• explore options for using the â€˜unit of repetitionâ€™ to distribute the â€˜unit of designâ€™ over a surface.

We will also be exploring a range of terms so that we can clearly differentiate between:

• what we are designing, and
• the method of distributing our design over a surface to create a pattern.

Oh! and in the process, we will also be creating thisÂ monochromatic brick pattern.

As part of the Geometric Surface Pattern Series, this class follows on from what was covered in the previous two classes â€˜Design an Arts and Crafts Enclosed Patternâ€™, and â€˜Design a Simple Decorative Bandâ€™.

The video lessons in this class illustrate the usefulness of aÂ grid for creating a variety of patterns. For the purpose of learning, feel free to copy what I have done. Then using the grid, try out your own decorative ideas.

To complete this project, it is assumed that you have used a vector drawing tool such as Adobe Illustrator or Affinity Designer. However, you may side-step the vector drawing tools and complete your project with whatever technique you wish, whether that be pen and ink, water colour or stencilling.
