I have read a couple of articles recently about ornate pattern creeping back into design after the trend of minimalism, probably most obvious in Interior Design with floral wallpaper and intricate design being introduced to feature walls.
In web design for example many sites have implemented patterns into the webpage background
See this article on Design Meltdown for more information on the use of ornate patterns in Web Design.
I have produced a simple ornate, wallpaper style pattern for you to download and use in your own projects, available for use in both Illustrator and Photoshop.
Instructions on how to use the files enclosed in the zip archive are as follows:
AI / EPS – Open in Illustrator, click the pattern on screen and drag into the swatches window, then simply use this swatch as the fill colour of an object.
PAT – In Photoshop select the Fill Tool, in the options bar select pattern from the drop down, then click pattern selector box and the small arrow in the top right, then Load Patterns. Navigate to the downloaded file to import the small and large Spoon Graphics patterns.
