This was a really informative article to look to while I was working on my first round of icons, since it was clear clear on how dots and line form grids. Dots can also form lines, that then go into a grid system. The pages with the many ways to implement the same shape in many different ways way cool too, although some of those relied on overlaying, which when I tried to do with my icons, looked TERRIBLE. :( BUT STILL, it was good to see how a simple shape can make so many patterns, both simple and more complex. Seeing the patterns with random repeats were interesting too, and it would be a cool challenge to try and create my own pattern with difficult-to-find- edges.
