What’s your passion?
My idea was to mix tradition and modernity, creating a website that was all about an ancient Portuguese technique but also followed some of the latest trends in Web Design.
One thing I love about the developer community is the collaborative spirit. Many times I used Open Source projects to enhance my layouts and this was my turn to give something back to the world.
While searching what has been done online about tiles I could found mainly 3 kinds of websites
Lisbon Tiles Playground
A free collection of repeatable SVG background patterns based on amazing Lisbon tiles and their cool history
After editing your tiles background you can generate a code or download the svg
The code copied by the user can be inserted in any website
About each Tile
All the tiles patterns are attached to a page telling their history and where they can be found in the city of Lisbon. This way, users can find their pattern in the real world.
Submit your Tile
Anyone can share a Lisbon Tile SVG with the public, by submitting it to Lisbon Tiles Playground.
