Geometric iPad App by Kapitza

Kapitza is a European design studio run by two sisters, Nicole and Petra Kapitza. They have produced two intriguing pattern sourcebooks, several dingbat fonts, several products featuring their patterns, and now they have an iPad/iPhone App called Geometric.

Traditional Mexican Woven Fabrics

  With simple geometrics and neon colors being so of-the-moment, maybe people will take a second look at traditional woven fabrics from Mexico.

Daily Swatch: Pattern Types – Misc. Tessellations – Houndstooth

I guess you could call this an abstracted houndstooth? It’s not a tessellation at all but it seems derived from them. I love this kind of spare geometric design — I’ve been into Peter Nencini and the iPhone game Eliss lately and this reminds me of them. It’s from Vintage Touch on Etsy.
