In this Illustrator tutorial, you'll learn how to create your own custom patters. We'll get started by learning about these two different implementations of patterns within Illustrator. From here we'll focus first on pattern fills, learning how to use the new pattern creation mode in Illustrator CS6. Next we'll move on and learn how Illustrator can use multiple pattern tiles to create a pattern brush. Finally, we'll wrap this course up by learning how to save our custom patterns out of Illustrator so we can reuse them on future projects. After completing this training, you'll have a good understanding of the tools and workflow for creating your own custom patterns in Illustrator. Software required: Illustrator CS6.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello, and welcome to this series of lessons focusing on Creating Custom Patterns in Illustrator presented by Digital-Tutors. My name is Eddie, and I'll be walking you through the process of creating both custom pattern fills, as well as pattern brushes inside Illustrator. We'll get started by learning about these two very different implementations of patterns within Illustrator. From here, we'll first focus on pattern fills, learning how to use the new pattern creation mode included with Illustrator CS6. Next we'll move on and learn how Illustrator can use multiple pattern tiles to create a pattern brush, and finally we'll wrap this course up by learning how to save our custom patterns out of Illustrator so we can reuse them on future projects. After completing this course, you'll have a good understanding of the tools and workflows for creating your own custom patterns in Illustrator. So let's go ahead and get started with our next lesson.
