We’ve been planning this for a while, but it is finally there: the Repper Gallery! With the gallery, you can explore all the patterns that you and other people have made with the Repper pattern making tool. All patterns in the gallery are released under the Creative Commons license for non-commercial use. We have provided you with some options to find patterns in every shape, color or style you can think of. You can search on:
- Tags: find patterns with a certain subject or style. And if you find a nice pattern, please help all other people and yourself search for them by adding tags yourself. (we’ve just launched it, so not very many patterns have been tagged yet. We need your help!)
- Color: we’re really excited about this one! It’s still in beta-stage, but you can search for patterns in a certain color. Click the color box next to the search field to select the color you want and get inspired by the amazing variety of patterns out there.
- Size: different sizes of patterns can be used for different things. Small patterns often look really good as a stylish Twitter (video), MySpace or desktop background. Big patterns are good for situations where you need a lot of detail: use it in your personal art project or send a postcard with the pattern on it to your friends!
