50 Astonishing Argyle Pattern Swatches for Illustrator

I don’t know about you guys, but I love argyle!  I love argyle sweaters, scarves, hats and socks; if I could find argyle pants, I’d probably wear them too.  So last weekend I decided to create a set of 50 Argyle Pattern Swatches for Illustrator and of course, give them away on my website.

I absolutely love creating pattern swatches, they are so fun to create and so useful as well.  You can use them in any number of ways including fashion design, textiles, package design and of course, graphic and web design.  Pattern swatches in Illustrator are so flexible in how they can be displayed.  You can scale them, rotate them, nudge them over pixel by pixel; all without having to changing the shape of your original object.  You can find a detailed tutorial on how to install and work with pattern swatches in Illustrator here.

    Wow, these are awesome. Thanks so much. You can even promote them as Twitter page backgrounds – I’ve noticed argyle patterns have become increasingly popular on the web’s favorite microblogging platform.

    If your not an argyle kind-of guy you can use to make tartan backgrounds for twitter.

  • Grant Friedman

    Thanks everyone for the comments! I absolutely love this set. Hope you guys put them to good use.
    @Daniel TartanMaker is cool. It’s a good thing they don’t export to vector or I’d be out of a job!

  • Jenaelee

    Those are actually good color pallets if you think about it. You can just use them to spark your creativity when coming up with color schemes!

    I love these patterns along with your other plaid ones as well. I had trouble downloading them though. When I open the downloaded file in Illustrator it is blank. Do you know why this would be?
