Having access to the right stripe pattern can be really valuable and save you time when creating designs.
Stripe patterns are useful in many situations and e.g. can do really well as backgrounds in web design – especially if they are not filled with to many strong colors. Of course the colors are very important when choosing a pattern for a specific design. However direction may also play an important role.
As you can see in the examples diagonal stripes can be used to give a cool business look while vertical may be great for a more romantic old school style. There are tons of ways you can vary the use of patterns to make designs that stand out. In this article you will find stripe patterns you can download for free, stripe pattern generators and examples of stripe patterns used in web design.
