A few years back, i wasn’t much of a ‘Pattern’ type designer. I always felt they were too busy for ‘my’ eyes. Well, we change, develop and more importantly evolve in our design capabilities.
I certainly have become more open to ALL design elements. Patterns for one, can add great depth into your work, if implemented properly (as with everything, right 😉 ) Check out this lovely site, Pattern Wall – you can find a good collection of free patterns for your creative endeavors!
