We see patterns everywhere - naturally occurring in nature, by intentional and man-made design, or perhaps even in synchronous or coincidental relationships between certain elements in our immediate vicinity.
Regardless of how we perceive patterns, it’s safe to say that we can all agree on one thing: Visual patterns make designs more compelling and interesting. By choosing the right ones to incorporate in your project, your custom design can go from “yawn” to “wow!” in a matter of seconds.
Say goodbye to normal and boring. Shine the spotlight on your Canva design and elevate the qualities of its various visual elements by selecting the right pattern from our collection. Whether you’re searching for wood grain or a unique flagstone design to add texture to a design, you can find plenty of high quality pattern and texture images from Canva’s amazing media library. There are patterns inspired by fabric textures like blue jeans or carpeting, brick wall images, interesting ceiling designs or more natural-occurring patterns like animal coat, floral motifs or lush foliage.
Perfect as background to any presentation, flyer, poster, and more, you can use these images for a multitude of design templates and layouts in Canva. Play around with various design and image editing features like the transparency tool or advanced filters tool. Adjust brightness, contrast, saturation or tint in just a few clicks. You can even add effects like vignette or x-process to any image. Use the grids or frames tool to zoom in, crop or scale your image to fit your design needs.
