Reading Responce: Pattern by Lupton

Patterns, when broken down, is the repetition of a single or multiple element(s). Most patterns are formed from these three formal components: "isolated elements, linear elements, and criss-crossing or interaction of the two (dots, stripes and grids)." Through the manipulation and combination of isolated, linear, and crossing, there are numerous possibilities when it comes to pattern creation.

In regards to the assignment at hand, creating patterns from icons is a bit challenging. Depending on the complexity of the icon the pattern can be too overpowering, or not enough. The techniques in this weeks reading response will in some ways make things easier to handle. Although not only is creating a brilliant pattern required, but i feel that in some ways introducing a little narrative would be beneficial as well.
