Patterns - More Ways to Play with Color


v3 launched with a major new section... Patterns. We knew that you loved finding great colors and arranging them in color palettes... so we guessed that you might want something to do with those palettes (Seeing as you've already created more than 3,400 different patterns in 2 days, I think we guessed right). We launched with just a couple dozen patterns to color but hope to add hundreds more over time. Create a Pattern or Browse the Patterns that have already been added.

I love the patterns! It was a wonderful idea and there's already SO many beautiful ones! (:

designshrine

It's a brilliant idea! But wow - I can't imagine how you put it together to do what it does... thank you!

I actually found it was quite easy... I just drew a sketch of what it should do and Chris made it all work ;)

xMeganMalicious

i have to admit, i'm warming up to it.
my absolute favourite patterns are florals.

You need to add more patterns for us to use!

jennyhelmbold

Also, I'd like to be able to search by a particular pattern. Is there a way to do that already?

nowheremangraphics

I may be a bit daft, but how do I actually download a pattern to use on a web page?

vermilion

Lots of fun! I can't wait for more choices, too.

indiethought

i've already used one of my own patterns for my myspace layout! i love it!

broj1834

I can't wait to see the Paisleys!

It took a bit of getting used to but now I that I have, I LOVE it. Very brilliant idea! Now I can't wait to play with more patterns :D

This is fantastic! I The palettes are a great tool, but I seldom use equal amounts/proportions of colours in a design, and the patterns actually make it easier to visualise how my primary, secondary and accent colours hang together.

The patterns are so very cool! Chris is apparently some kind of genius. ;)

HoboNan

Would it be possible to fix it so the hexcode is beside the
Color #1
Color #2
etc?
Or to make it so we can drag & drop the colors around like we can do when making palettes?
By the way ... thanks Darius Darlin :-)

Two thumbs up from your pattern-loving friends at Pinball Publishing!

Ryuukuro

One complaint: You can't just pop a premade palette into a pattern. If you can make it so that I can just select one of my palettes and shuffle around the colors--or if you can make it so that a new palette can be created on the fly from a pattern without copy-and-paste then the patterns will be perfect.

There are two curious looking patterns: Birthday Wrapping and Raspberry Bubbles. Why doesn't that pattern exist anymore??
