The beauty of learning surface pattern design is that you can apply these skills to so many other routes! This course was so well structured that even though I didn’t know Illustrator, I had no problem at all learning it.
Before Immersion, I studied microbiology at university and was working as a scientist for a pharma company but I wasn’t happy as I wanted to do something that allowed me to express my creativity. Then I discovered surface pattern design and I was hooked! I thought that would be the perfect way to merge my creativity and my love for patterns and make a career out of it.
I must admit the price of the course held me back at first, it’s a big investment and I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend that much money, but then I thought this was an investment for my future and I just went for it! Of course, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to make any money out of this new career, and I’m not a licensed designer (yet)...

I have POD shops, I sell low-content books on Amazon, and most of all, I teach online, which I absolutely love.
The best part of taking Immersion was the fantastic community you find, I have made friends I still keep in touch with!
If you are on the fence about joining see it as an investment in your future, if you’re serious about changing your life, Immersion can change your life, it certainly changed mine in ways I had never imagined!
Now I have location and time freedom, I could move back from the UK to Sicily, I can work from the beach and I can create courses to help others learn new skills and move forward in their creative career.
Now I look forward to starting a new working week without dreading Mondays... how many people can say that?
