Design Process Project retro patterns in illustrator



Working on a collection of retro textile patterns I thought it might be interesting to show a behind the scenes, the good people over at Plurk have already had the “pleasure” of one of our more psychedelic previews :)


Our ideas are gathered from everywhere and sometimes it starts life as a sketch or in this case as a pattern I had been thinking about for sometime.


After drawing a few simple shapes in illustrator, we begin to make to play around with the shapes, strokes and start to put together a colour palette.


From a couple of basic shapes we can build up a set of patterns and vectors that can be used for all sorts of things.
