Day 103: Guilloche Patterns

day 103: guilloche patterns

Guilloche patterns are best known as security seals and patterns on currency, official documents, and more. Little did you know: they’re also relatively easy to make with a vector drawing program like Adobe Illustrator. Check out this great tutorial for more tips on how to create these beautiful and useful patterns.  Hypotrochoid, or Spirograph-like, patterns are a little different; expect a post about my homemade (laser-cut) hypotrochoid drawing tool very soon.
