So I've seen this pattern in the background and banners of websites, but I don't know what it's called. I want to see more examples, and learn how to do it myself (Using CS2).

This website has a example of what I'm talking about in it's seemless background: http://projectmgame.com/en/

  • could you attach a screenshot, because the site will eventually change. it is good practice on Stackexchange to copy the part of the site you are talking about.

I would call it a tessellation since the triangles used are regular and repeating in a unified way.


I'd call it a pattern which is the same thing as a tessellation, just not such a "fancy" word.

Just because it happens to be a pattern/tessellation of triangles, that does not give it a specific name.
