Pixel patterns are a commonly used design element that serve as alternatives to using textures, gradients or vectors for design. Frequently used as backgrounds or overlay patterns, pixel patterns have a nice grid-like effect that create a sense of detail and structure in design.
There are some pixel patterns that are rectangular, others that are crosshatched lines, but they all have a place in design.
