Today I would like to share with you our picks for the top 10 vector patterns!
What’s great about these patterns is that they are entirely seamless.
What this means is that they can tile seamlessly without breaking the designed pattern within them. So, no need to worry about fitting them onto different background sizes, you simply create copies and place them vertically and horizontally in line with each other.
More over, these are all available in vector formats which make them completely editable. You can colour them, alter the shapes within the patterns and scale them out to suit your designing needs. Why not try it out in one of the Alternatives to Adobe Illustrator we discuss in this article.
