Dot patterns

Introducing the dot patterns
We have introduced two different dot patterns to give texture to your work.

We took inspiration from graph paper and engineering blue prints for the widely spaced developer dot pattern. When you see widely spaced patterns of dots, the content is more developer-oriented than user-oriented.

The enterprise dot pattern is a fine dot weave reminiscent of high precision engineering. When you see tightly spaced patterns of dots, the content is more enterprise-oriented than consumer-oriented.

You can use both dot patterns together, if both are appropriate for the work in question. The relative amount of either pattern is determined by the exact weightings for Enterprise and Developer on those sliders.

Use the dot patterns creatively
You can use a single row of dots as a boundary, or a small area of dots, or larger areas. You can make the dots part of the image you are creating, or part of the background.

Two versions: dot size and spacing

Widely spaced dots: developer dot pattern

Widely spaced dots
When communications are developer lead, or are aimed at the developer market, the widely spaced dots must be used.
0.7mm dot, 6mm spacing


Tightly spaced dots: enterprise dot pattern

Tightly spaced dots
When communications are enterprise lead, or are aimed at the enterprise market, the tightly spaced dots must be used.
0.3mm dot, 1mm spacing

Large format use: dot size and spacing

Widely spaced dots

Dots for large format use: wide
When developer dots are required for large format print work, such as posters or banners, use this format.
4mm dot, 36mm spacing


Tightly spaced dots

Dots for large format use: tight
When enterprise dots are required for large format print work, such as posters or banners, use this format.
2mm dot, 6mm spacing
