Go Media Zine - Seamless pattern

Image credit Adam Wagner of GoMediaZine

I saw this awesome pattern and had to read more about it. It turns out that Adam Wagner from GoMediaZine takes you step by step through how to create a seamless pattern using vector shapes. You can pen tool your own swirly pattern ingredients, or just use his that he provides and LiveTrace in Illustrator. I’ve never made a digital seamless pattern before so this tutorial was interesting to me. I made one once in a basic Design course and it involved drawing my own pattern shapes with a Sharpie, re-drawing that pattern about 30-odd times, alternating positive and negative space, then cutting them all out with an Xacto, squinting my eyes and placing pieces together by hanging them off one another. A much more painstaking process, but I did really enjoy that assignment.
