Design Shapes: The Circle, Part III

Created: Tuesday, June 23, 2009, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 10:50 am

Continuing my discussion on circles (see Circles I and Circles II), this time I look at creating circles in an application outside PowerPoint.

Specifically, my office team was helping me with a review of Artlandia’s new SymmetryWorks plug-in for Adobe Illustrator that lets me create organic looking patterns from all shapes. Since we are biased towards circles at this point of time, we decided to create a repeating circular pattern using SymmetryWorks. These patterns were intended as a starting point for PowerPoint backgrounds.

Look at these patterns here — they are all uploaded to my Flickr account so feel free to click on these thumbnails to see larger previews:

Since this was a fun project, we also made a presentation-full-of-circles with the first pattern — we uploaded this to SlideBoom so that we could embed it within this post:

So what do I do with circles next? Wait and watch — or send me your thoughts and feedback…
