Twister Surface Pattern Design

Twister Pattern Design

Introducing Twister!

Twister started as a simple square divided into four vertical columns of colours. By moving the corner handles separately it was possible to make the previous straight lines into curvy shapes. This design uses 9 different shapes overlapping each other to create the first building block of the pattern.

Making the Design into a Pattern

I duplicated the basic block once to the right and flipped it vertically. Then duplicated the first two blocks down and flipped them horizontally to create a total of four different blocks.

Colour Combinations

By duplicating the block of 4 illustrations and adding a background colour it was now easy to work through a series of combinations to find the most appealing. This is perhaps the part I find most enjoyable!

Testing The Pattern Repeat

The full-screen versions use actual pattern repeats, set to repeat using my CSS style sheet. Meaning I didn’t need large images taking up extra time to download.

Miroslav Sasek

I found the designs had suddenly turned into what could have been drawn by Miroslav Sasek – more often known as M.Sasek. A prolific illustrator from the Czech Republic. His first book This is Paris was published in 1957.
