In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to use the new symbols tool in Affinity Designer to create seamless, repeating gingham patterns.
Interesting is the visual help created by symbols placed side by side. With this method, you can immediately evaluate the effect of the pattern in the surface. For complex patterns, individual elements that lie in the edge areas can be precisely aligned.
In article 05 Repeating, seamless patterns with the symbols tool – Affinity Designer, I show another seamless, repeating pattern with English user interface in Affinity Designer.
The article 07 Christmas pattern with Assets and Symbols – Affinity Designer will show you more samples with repeating patterns.
The tutorial was created with Affinity Designer 1.5.4 [German UI] and recorded and edited with Camtasia: mac 2.10.8.
