Groups of floral ornaments inspired mainly by the lavishly ornate mihrab from the Great Mosque of Cordoba. The set consists of over 20 symbols with all sorts of Moorish themed designs ranging from simple leafy swirls to intricate curly fleurons. It also includes three seamless background patterns made by combining some of the graphics. All the elements are saved as swatches for ease of use. You can simply drag and drop them into your files, either as they are or tweaked to your own needs.
The design process involved manually tracing the paths and then fine tuning each anchor point to achieve curves with a natural, flowing rhythm. For the patterns, the biggest issue as usual was ensuring continuity and coherence between the several items used in each case. You might find them to work best as background elements either in a website or to complement some ornate romantic design for print.
