Since I received Issue #9 of Uppercase Magazine in the mail yesterday, I haven’t been able to think think of anything else. My eyes have been glued to the pages and I happily spent the last 24 hours reading the articles and savoring the wonderful imagery, beautiful colors, and clean layout. I have only 2 Uppercase issues: #8 and Issue #9. As you can see, I’ve grown into a fanatic pretty quickly. If you haven’t subscribed to Uppercase Magazine yet, I highly recommend that you check it out. Beware that you don’t become entranced like me and neglect your earthly duties. Thanks for the subscription, Janine!
The visual theme for Issue #9 is the honeycomb pattern (or the hexagon) — it graces many of the pages as headers and trim…
I spent several hours last night trying to figure out how to make a honeycomb pattern from scratch. Alas, I gave up close to midnight and watched this tutorial on YouTube instead. Warning: PoisonAngel, the guy in the screencast, cusses once and you really have to pump up the volume just to hear his instructions — apart from those things, it’s a decent tutorial. :)
After I saw that tutorial, I made 20 Uppercase-inspired honeycomb patterns that you can download as JPGs or as seamless Photoshop patterns. These are free and you’re welcome to use them in your personal or commercial projects. Note that they’re intended to be used on the web and hence, they’re low res at 72 ppi.
I hope you enjoy these and remember, if you want the pattern in other colors, you can watch PoisonAngel and learn how to make your own — it’s easy and fun. ♥
