Rotate Patterns

As a designer, I am interested in Chinese Characters. Their geometric shapes and combinations of visual images and sound for me is like a magic pattern. Thus, I came up with an idea of creating Chinese Character patterns.

During my research, I found the structural symmetry of Chinese Characters interesting. So I added these structural attributes into my patterns’ design. I choose three Chinese Characters which are shown on the left side, rotated them 90 or 180 degrees which turned out to be other Characters on the right side.
