Have you noticed the hexagons everywhere these days? They were rampant in the design of the most recent Hunger Games movie. Justin Seeley was going on about hexagons in a post on his blog. People are pinning them. Well, I figured it’s time to start making some hexagon patterns, too… and you can download them for free!
A couple of these are similar to the ones I offered in 20 free vector patterns, but I think these are even cooler. (Of course, there are other freebies at 20 free line patterns and also 11 free halftone spot patterns.)
Note: The small patterns below are just “thumbnails” of the patterns. Each pattern file is a PDF file big enough to cover either an A4 or Letter-sized page. (Of course, because they’re vector, you can scale them up or down as much as you want and they’ll still be high-quality.) You can Place the PDF files in InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, or almost any other program. You can also open each PDF in Illustrator, allowing you to go in and tweak the lines to your heart’s content.
Here are a few examples of how you might use these patterns:
As I said, each of these patterns is a full page. The graphics below are just samples cut from the middle of the pattern. Click on each image to download its PDF and see the whole page. Or you may want to right-click on the image and choose Save As (or Save Link As, depending on your web browser).
If you use these patterns, I’d love to hear about it! Put links to graphics in the comments below! And if there are other patterns you wish you had, let us know, too.
