TECH TEXTURE // No. 1
Lately, I've been inspired by some work I'm doing during the day, layering color over color to create geometric textures. It got me thinking. I love the way in which patterns and textures can mix up a print piece, a website, a smartphone wallpaper.
A lot of times, I think it's what we're (I'm) missing when I put a piece together. Headlines/taglines, logos, the right typeface and photos all present in this ad? Check, check, check, check. WHY IS IT BORING? Let's give it some texture.
I decided to try a few new ideas out. I found color inspiration here (artist unknown) and started to experiment with the ways the colors play off each other in Illustrator.
Here's couple downloads based on these patterns:
It's mesmerizing how slight adjustments can greatly change the resulting texture. Have you ever done this?
