In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial we’re going to create a cool abstract geometric design with icy blue polygonal shapes. This style of art is perfect for adding stunning visuals to your design work and being vector based means it can be used for anything from a book cover to the background of your website or social media profile. This is another really simple Illustrator technique that results in some really awesome looking artwork.

Icy polygonal geometric design

The abstract geometric design we’ll be creating features a series of interconnecting polygonal shapes, much like the facets of a crystal. Illustrator’s Pathfinder tool makes it easy to create this polygonal effect, then once a series of cool blue fills with subtle gradients are added the design is really brought to life with crisp lines and vibrant colours.

Open up Adobe Illustrator and draw a square on the artboard, then grab the Pen tool and draw a random zig zagging line across the whole square. Make sure to single click the path points to avoid dragging out any bezier curve handles.
