A pattern is an amazing way to make you products and website look professional, and it is SUPER easy to make. Just follow the steps and you will have a pattern in no time.
Let’s begin with creating a new design, go to the top bar and create a design in the size 4000 x 4000 px. We want it to be big if we need to print it on packagings like boxes and tissue paper.
Open your brand board in another fan, and click on the brand element you want on your pattern, it can also be the logo we created in the previous lesson. Copy the element and paste it into your pattern document.
Place your element in the middle and resize it to the size you prefer. Use the snap grids to tell you when the element is in the middle.
Now you use the grids to drag it to the side and make sure it is right in the middle, when the grids get pink like in the image below you are in the right place.
Copy it and drag it to the other side.
Do the same at the top and bottom, it is very important that you use the pink grids so it gets perfectly aligned.
Now that you know how to do it, you can add other elements to your design, or you can just stick to the one you have. But remember that if you add something that goes off the side of the pattern you have to make use of the snap guides like we did before. When you have added the last elements, you are done. Easy right?
Now you can export your pattern- Click on the share button
Choose PNG as the file type and check off the transparent background box. If you wnt to be able to change the color on the item in the pattern download it as a SVG.
Now you can use your pattern for all kinds of branding and you can also import it to Canva again to use in your designs there just click on uploads and upload file.
Now you have your pattern in place, let's go create an email signature.
