List of Patterns For Creativity

A comprehensive list of patterns to spark your creative flare. Patterns are not something we pay much attention to on a daily basis, yet they appear everywhere. On the wallpaper in our homes, gift-wrap, wild animal skins, clothing, carpets, a chess board, fabric, paper and in nature. We admire the majestic sand dunes, waves and spiral shells upon the shorelines. Patterns inspire creativity and unique designs. Start seeing the inspiration right in front of you each day. Whether you prefer spots, stripes, checks, blobs, bubbles, waves or stars doesn't matter, patterns can inspire you in many different ways. Take a closer look.

“There are patterns which emerge in one's life, circling and returning anew, an endless variation of a theme” - Jacqueline Carey
