The Jazz Pattern

In our last project, we used Processing to make an interesting pattern that would go on a hypothetical product. Here’s an article about the origin of one of the most well-known patterns that’s seen on all kinds of products and other places (and I’m sure most of you probably recognize it). A cup company held a contest to find a new stock pattern, and this “Jazz” pattern won because it’s generic (so it could be used in lots of settings) but still universally pleasant, and its appearance is irregular enough so it can handle slight printing errors.
