Pattern, from the French 'patron', is a type of theme of recurring events or objects, sometimes referred to as elements of a set. The most basic patterns are based on repetition and periodicity. Pattern in design terms can be used to depict stories and play out an order of narrative using imagery, or in simplified terms with symbols and semantic connections to understood social facts.
