Subtle Patterns

What started out as a small side project in 2011 has become the worlds most popular resource for high quality tileable patterns. No small feat!

While working on a site design I needed some subtle background patterns. I went on Google hoping to find some good resources, but the search came up blank. Literally. I could not believe my own eyes. Immediately I felt a need to provide this service. Long story short, the site now has over 380 patterns, well over 450 000 unique visits pr month and it’s own Photoshop & Sketch plugin!

The patterns have been used by thousands of blogs and other websites world wide, even big corporations like Adobe, Microsoft and Google has used the service.

As of 2017 Subtle Patterns was acquired by Toptal, and is no longer maintained by me.
