Artlandia Releases SymmetryWorks for Illustrator

Surface design tool now runs in OS X By Dave Nagel
Artlandia, a developer of software tools for graphic designers, has released SymmetryWorks for Adobe Illustrator 10. SymmetryWorks is a plugin for interactive pattern making targeted for textile and stationery designers, but also for Web and general graphic designers who need to create patterns and surface designs. It's also available for Illustrator 8 and 9 and now runs in Mac OS X.

SymmetryWorks is designed to simplify the workflow of pattern making by performing "thousands of behind-the-scenes translations, rotations, reflections, alignments and other precise operations that otherwise make the process of composing a pattern a tedious and painstaking task," according to the company. The plugin keeps all elements of the pattern linked to the pattern's seed so that when the user edits the seed, the pattern is updated automatically.

SymmetryWorks is available for Adobe Illustrator 8 through 10 on Macintosh, Mac OS X and Windows systems. The plugin can be downloaded immediately from the company's Web site for $124.95. Users of previous versions can upgrade for free. For more information, visit
