Today we will talk about shapes of pattern tiles and how to combine the dynamic features of MirrorMe and Pattern Maker to produce complex-looking but easy to make seamless patterns. Let’s create something interesting!
The letterpress effect has been around for some time now and it is still quite popular. This tutorial covers that in two parts, the first, the creation of a vector emblem inside Illustrator and the second, applying layer styles to the vector artwork using Photoshop for creating the letterpress effect.
Today we’ll talk a little bit about the two most common types of symmetry and using tools so you can quickly and easily create symmetrical objects in Adobe Illustrator. And this is important, because symmetry is used in all kinds of design, architecture, painting and other visual arts.
Generally, there are 17 kinds of symmetry for seamless patterns, however Adobe Illustrator can offer us only one of them, it is called the Simple Shift. Thanks to MirrorMe plug-in we can significantly extend the functionality of the Pattern Maker feature, adding at least another 7 kinds of mirror symmetry. Let’s take a look at how to create additional types of symmetry, working directly in the Pattern Maker mode.
Chalkboard signs are a creative way that businesses market to their customers. In today’s tutorial, we’re going to show you how to make a really simple chalkboard illustration effect in Adobe Illustrator, but first we’ll set everything up in Photoshop. So let’s get started!
In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to create a paint roller and tray in adobe illustrator. The tutorial is composed of two main parts, creating the tray and creating the paint roller.

Most of you probably noticed that the sample of the seamless pattern in the majority of cases disappears from the Swatches panel after you save your file in eps10 format. This is a minor problem but if you take care of your client and count on long term cooperation then you’ll need to think more about it. Moreover, some microstock websites demand saving the seamless patterns in the Swatches panel (I think Graphicriver for example).
