Retro Triangle Pattern in Adobe Illustrator

In today’s Adobe Illustrator video tutorial we’re going to use Illustrator’s powerful vector tools to make a retro style triangle pattern, which seamlessly repeats a series of randomly coloured shapes to cover an infinite area. Being vector artwork means the result is crisp and sharp, and can even be resized and re-coloured to suit different applications, all without affecting the overall quality as it would a pixel based pattern.

  1. That ‘age old annoyance’ has always stopped me from using this technique for large scale (read: expensive) print.

    I now no longer need worry!

  2. Wow. I spend way too much time in Illustrator. Wish I was that fast at making color decisions. Great tutorial! Thanks Chris.

  3. That was great! Wow! You are so fast at Illustrator!
    Thank you so very much!


    • Nice! What was the command that allowed you to duplicate and pasted those groups? Around 1:50 in the video.
