Another seamless pattern for Tealet's packaging, illustrated in the same roughened, hand-drawn style as the logo.
For a full explanation of how this pattern will be used on the packaging, read this.
This pattern is for a Japanese tea farm and their teas are harvested in Spring. I wanted it to be culturally significant, so I chose to illustrate a sakura (cherry blossom) motif. Sakura are deeply symbolic in Japanese culture, and are romanticized heavily in Japanese art.
In Tealet's next shipment of four teas, three of them will be from this farm. Thus, there are three color schemes for this pattern, all drawing from a light pastel Spring-inspired color palette.
The GIF depicts my process. Check the attachment for inspiration, sketches, and other views.

holy toledo!!!! this is mental Jon. You are the pattern master lately. Loved seeing this process gif and above all, the end result is superb. Well done mate.
Wow, great GIF, Jon. And lovely pattern, too, of course. :)
really, really great work!! love it!
@Matt Vergotis Thanks, my man! I'm definitely having a lot of fun exploring this pattern making process lately, and I'm glad I have a client that is facilitating that exploration!
@Ryan Hamrick Thanks, Ryan! In retrospect, there are a couple of things I'm noticing this morning about the GIF that I might have done differently, but this was a good exercise for me, and will definitely make its way into the rotation more often. Although, I think I really need to get and start using After Effects. That's how people make those really dynamic, fluid animations that convert to GIF format you see on here.
@Daniel Alb I appreciate it, Daniel! I definitely logged some serious hours on this pattern, so I'm glad people like it.
@Unipen I appreciate you having a look!
The looks difficult to do. Great job!
@Jonathan Patterson Thanks, Jonathan, although I'd say this is more time consuming than difficult. It may seem more daunting than it really is, but honestly, once you know the mechanics of building patterns, and you learn how to think in pattern tiles, the rest is just fun exploration. Yeah, there is often a lot of trial and error, and it can take time to iron out the wrinkles, but it becomes a challenge to see how far you can push yourself. I'm actually just scratching the surface with these seamless patterns. Never really did much in this area until recently, but I'm having a lot of fun with it, and hope to keep getting better.
Great work, I've never done one and it looks complicated, love it.
@Rudy Hurtado Global Branding It's really not that complicated, Rudy! As I mentioned to @Jonathan Patterson above, it just requires a basic understanding of how patterns work, and a knowledge of the mechanics of creating a flawlessly seamless single tile. Understanding these basic tenets will help you mentally visualize how the pattern will work, which will, in turn, aid the arrangement of your images. After that, it really just boils down to planning, sketching, and a bit of trial and error.
Before I started in with these types of patterns, I saw an extremely helpful tutorial on Vectips, which *REALLY* helped demystify the process. Honestly, getting the tile to repeat seamlessly is the easiest part, thanks to a very simple, flawless technique found in that tutorial. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in getting started with pattern making.
Thanks Jon, is this for a client or just an exercise?
@Rudy Hurtado Global Branding Hey Rudy, look at my 1st post :D
Yeah, i remember the logo, amazing stuff as usual from you,
@Rudy Hurtado Global Branding I appreciate that, man! Thanks for checking in today, Rudy. Be on the lookout for another one of these possibly tomorrow or Friday.
I love this.
@Jord Riekwel Hey, Jord! Glad you stopped by. Thanks for the kind words.
Beautiful, Jon! Thanks for showing the process too!
@Inka Mathew Heeeeey, Inka! Good to hear from you! Thank you so much for the kind words. Glad you liked the process. I think this is how I'm going to show my process from now on, since I just found out that ~10% of the people who view my shots are actually bothering to view my process attachments. That was a really distressing discovery for me, because I put a lot of work into those process attachments. Seems these days, people just want instant gratification, and they don't read or click more than they have to. So all that work I'm putting forth is just totally wasted. Here on Dribbble, it seems that wow&dazzle in one shot is really the only way for work to get noticed these days. So, I'll just save all the other stuff for my Behance case studies.
Anyway, keep your eyes peeled, because I've got another pattern process animation to post for tomorrow :)
@Rob Zangrillo Thanks so much, Rob! Stay tuned; I've got another animated pattern process shot coming tomorrow, as well as another fun little animated shot :D
@Kate England Thanks, Kate! Glad you liked it :)
@Jon Stapp | atomicvibe Really beautifully presented too, with the animation. Glad I discovered your wonderful work! :)
@Kate England That's really kind of you to say, Kate. Thank you!
Very good job
