Camouflage pattern generator

Camo Pattern IconI’ve been on a pretty good run the last several days as far as a creative streak at my day job. Working through several new designs for banners, product animations and wallpaper designs. One of these led to the idea of having a camouflage background to build on, but I couldn’t find a pattern I liked, and I didn’t really want to blow all my remaining istock credits on an extended license of a background I would use only once or twice. So using some code I had written for a screensaver, I built a random pattern generator that would create a unique camouflage pattern about 1500 x 1100 pixels.

This is not unlike the grid generator I built late last year, in that I have been trying to find ways to create interesting backgrounds to use as elements for designs. The thing that I like about the camo generator though is that you can easily substitute a unique shape and create a branded pattern pretty easily. Simply by altering a few lines of code, you can change the scale, and rotation of the base shape and viola! You have a unique pattern using your logo or trade marked icon… like… oh I don’t know…. say a Reddit Alien camo pattern. Cool huh?

Here’s the source file too if your interested.

  1. Very cool! But the link to the source seems to be broken. Would you mind putting it back up? I’d love to play around with this. Thanks!
