Today’s Illustrator and Photoshop design tutorial is based on a suggestion from one of my readers.
I managed to track down a sample of the artwork Ella sent over back to the ISO50 blog, where Seth Hardie shows off some amazing designs that he created using nothing but a couple of iPhone apps!
Hold Shift and drag the Crop tool across the document to trim the artwork into a square format and remove the completely black lower portion. Press CMD+J to duplicate the current blur image layer, then go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise to add some subtle grain. Select the Gaussian checkbox then crank up the noise amount to around 16% to add plenty of grainy speckles.
We can really intensify the colours by changing this noise layer to Overlay, then reduce the opacity to around 60% to balance the vibrancy of the colours. I initially tried to keep this strictly a Photoshop tutorial, but there’s no denying that Illustrator is much more capable at creating cool patterns based on shapes. Add a black to transparent radial gradient fill, then adjust the flow using the Gradient tool by clicking and dragging across the shape.
Repeatedly press the shortcut CMD+D to Transform Again to create a complete row of perfectly aligned diamond shapes. Select all the shapes that make up the two rows and duplicate them again, aligning them to extend the pattern. You can now hit the CMD+D shortcut to continue duplicating and aligning extra rows automatically until you have a nice series of vector gradient diamond shapes.
Draw a selection around all the shapes and press CMD+C to Copy, then switch over to Photoshop and press CMD+V to Paste.
Press CMD+I to quickly Invert the pattern to turn the black artwork white, then change the blending mode to Color Dodge. Reduce the Fill amount of the pattern layer to reduce the impact of the Color Dodge effect to create a subtle pattern overlay. The combination of techniques in Photoshop and Illustrator makes this effect easy to produce. Access All Areas members gain instant access to 100s of premium design resources & source files. I had some really good results following this tutorial so thought I would pop back to say THANKS!


Thank you for taking the time to share this tutorial, I am just about finished the step by step instructions are very clear and on point thank you. Nice tutorial… Since I do as a web designer more and more design with CSS, I completely neglect Photoshop and Illustrator tutorials like this. After searching through various tie-dye tutorials on the internet and coming up disappointed, I sought out a way to make my own using G'Mic and a clever little trick by Fencepost using the Line Nova script in GIMP. I did add guidelines to my image and used the vertical guide to snap to when using the Blend tool, not sure if that will have any impact on process, though. I agree to Shutterstock's Website Terms, Privacy Policy, Licensing Terms and to receive emails that I can opt out of at any time. All plans come as a Standard license, and can be upgraded to an Enhanced license at any time. That’s what is expected from a graphic designer, it is his job to satisfy the demands of the clients, to meet their needs, to work with devotion and commitment & present fresh and unique designs every time, obeying the creative director and never reflecting from his face his fatigue and exhaustion.
Ella got in touch with some examples of cool geometric gradient designs that she had seen a lot lately and wondered how they were made. The designs are essentially a geometric gradient pattern placed over a vibrant blurry background, which results in a cool piece of abstract art that’s perfect for a print, or as a background to present your other design work. The more vibrant and colourful the image the better, so I’ve picked out a sunset image with lovely pinky purple hues.
Switch over to Illustrator and draw a square on the artboard (hold shift to make it proportional). Select them all and drag out a duplicate row, this time offsetting them to fit underneath the original row.
This blending mode will allow the white pattern to interact with the vibrant colours of the background. Im always looking for ways to create unique backgrounds without purchasing or spending alot of time.
No matter how I drag it, I get that different "stripe" that I've pointed out in the image below. Everyone who signs up gets full access to our entire library, including our curated collections.

I always love receiving tutorial suggestions, so I’ve been busy playing around to figure out how to replicate this cool effect.
Rather than experiment with this unique form of iPhone art, I’ll show you how to create a similar effect with Photoshop and Illustrator. The elements will remain in vector format until you hit Enter, so don’t worry about scaling them up or squashing and stretching them to create a cool effect.
Where Photoshop really shines is its ability to merge colours and create vibrant effects with blending modes, which is what gives this abstract artwork that cool intense appearance. If I zoom out to 25%, stretch the canvas waaaaaay down and drag on the canvas below the image I get what you have. If at any time you're unsatisfied with your experience with us, you can cancel your subscription. Your appreciative words are always encouraging and they motivate me to a great extent to keep on coming back for more stuff for your interest.Today I am unfolding 10 free high resolution blurred backgrounds. Follow this step by step guide to create your own abstract gradient pattern art using a mix of Photoshop and Illustrator techniques. The trend of blurred backgrounds is heightened lately, they can be used to create backgrounds for websites, infographics, applications, presentations or can be put anywhere in the backdrop to give a nice and subtle feel to the design.
These accumulation offers great set of colors, it depends which you choose in accordance with the respective prospect.
