What You Should Know About Geometric Design
Geometric design is a popular trend that showcases basic shapes in creative designs. Rooted in actual mathematical principles, geometric design can be created with formulaic precision or through experimentation.
It's often used to create seamless patterns, abstract backgrounds, and cool photo effects.
To create a basic design yourself, select the Polygon Tool (U) or Custom Shape Tool (U) in Adobe Photoshop to begin arranging different shapes together.
Freestyle the arrangement by adding more shapes to the design, or test out common math theories found in our free tutorials. When you're finished, right-click the shape layers to create a Smart Object to finalize your design.
