Whenever you’re stuck or creatively blocked, and have no idea how to start a certain design project, search for patterns. Patterns add life and personality to any medium; they’re somehow like an icon, whenever a brand becomes so popular, their full logo (or name) is no longer required, they simply leave an icon or a simple graphic element (like patterns) on their products. Take Nike for example, the audience need only to see the “swoosh” symbol to know it’s them; and lots of other brands can be easily identified by certain elements or patterns like Victoria’s secret (pink stripes with black accents), Burberry (trademarked pattern), Louis Vuitton (icon and pattern), Tiffany (famous white and teal colors)… and the list goes on.
