After spending years learning how to become a surface pattern designer on my own, I've become passionate about sharing my knowledge with others. For this course, I have compiled all the necessary skills and knowledge you need to begin designing!

Intro to Surface Pattern Design


I'm knowledgeable in Illustrator but the essentials parts of the class helped me learn different tools I wasn't aware of which that made my life so much easier. Thank you for this informative class!

I love this class so much.


I find her explanations very easy to follow and really like how she explains each tool she uses. Her process is nice to learn as well as it gives you the chance to adopt some or all of her process while finding what your own is, if you're still trying to find it.

Loved this class! I learned so much and got some new tips on using different tools in Illustrator as a bonus!
