Idea (Pattern) Generation using THREE CIRCLES



The Secondary ONEs (2011) learned how to make use of the combination of THREE circles to generate an infinite number of design patterns. For maximum effect, stick with one arrangement of THREE CIRCLES and join them up in as many ways you can think of before you change the positions of the circles for the next set of idea patterns.

You might be interested to know that this simple technique of arranging shapes and joining them are very important drawing basics. Artists and designers arrange, position and join various shapes to create interesting forms in their drafting stage (or at least I do...).

The image below shows various options you can adopt to start modifying your initial THREE circle patterns and begin your journey to endless (pattern) idea possibilities:

Have fun!
