In this course, we will be creating two simple seamless patterns. We will learn how to set up our artboards and create a live preview with Symbols, use the shape tools to create a simple first pattern composition that avoids the seams, but still looks balanced, and import clip art into our document. We will also learn how to pick out objectssurrounding the seams of our tile in Designer. We will then order and test our patterns with the Fill tool, and if we have wanted to make patterns, we can also do so in this course. We would like to thank the instructor for this course!
