Freebie: Abstract Blobs Pattern

posted by Matt Ward on Oct 6, 2009.

Freebie: I’ve designed another seamless vector pattern and I’m making it available to one and all as a freebie. This one is called Abstract Blobs, and is really just that, a collection of swirly vector shapes structured together in an interesting looking pattern. Download it and use it your designs!

Back in late July, I released my first ever seamless vector pattern, titled Imperial Leaf. Now, just over two months later, I’m back with another one. And, just like last time, I’m making it available to everyone as another high quality design freebie!

This one had actually been sitting in one of the many folders on my computer, lingering as a half-completed concept that I just started working on one day, but never got around to completing. However, with the huge success of my recent 17 Useful Pattern Resources post, I was inspired to open this one up and finish it off for you guys.

As you can see, it’s not just my readers that benefit from my blog. Sometimes my own posts can give me the jump start that I need to get some of my own projects finished.

The pattern actually took a little while longer to design than Imperial Leaf, because I just started drawing shapes free hand with the pencil tool in Illustrator. There was a lot of drawing, redrawing, smoothing and fine tuning of the main shapes. Then, for precision’s sake, I cut them in half, duplicated the remainder, reflected the duplicate, lined up the seams and fused them back together. This helped ensure that the shapes were, in fact, perfectly symetrical, which is important for repeating patterns like this one.

Anyhow, you can download these patterns by clicking on the preview image above. The download will include the original black pattern along with three colourd variants – “Lemon Lime”, “Blueberry Pie” and “Chocoalate and Cherries”. There are also PNG versions of these. Feel free to come up with your own custom colour combos though.

If you do use it in a design, please consider shooting me an email. I always love to see my freebies hard at work, and I would really like to see what you’ve come up with. In fact, I am sincerely hoping to one day create a Flickr user collection for you all to showcase some of the work you do with my freebies!

Let me know your thoughts on this one! Do you like the pattern? Would you like to see more pattern freebies on here?
