What I loved most about Immersion: Not only did I learn the technical skills I needed for surface pattern design, I also joined the most amazing community of creatives. The support and encouragement from this community is unreal. Meeting other people who are excited about surface design has been the fuel I needed to propel myself […]
Immersion helped me do my ‘one thing a day’ related to what I’d like to be doing in the future instead of what I’m actually doing now. I’ve been working as a creative in the quilt and textiles industry for over 20 years now. I began as a lover of all things with a thread […]
Michelle found Immersion at a time when she urgently needed a change in her life. She was looking for strength and inspiration. Out of her frustration, came determination. “I felt very inspired to make my own products. Everything I learned motivated me! I was so eager to create that I jumped into the pool. I […]
At the age of 56, I found myself starting to worry about what would happen once I retired as I had no real ‘plan’ up to that point. I wanted to be able to do something that would bring in a little extra money to supplement our superannuation fund and our savings. I came across […]
When I started Immersion in 2020 I was already a top-seller on the Spoonflower marketplace, and I’d been using Adobe Illustrator for 20 years. However, I was mostly self-taught so I really lacked confidence as a designer and I definitely suffered from imposter syndrome! Let me say… I got SO MUCH out of Immersion! The […]
Before I started Immersion, I had never opened Adobe Illustrator and never heard of surface pattern design. I imagined that it would be too difficult to learn and I relied on drawing on paper instead. I came across Bonnie’s course and it seemed like the exact thing I’d been wanting to learn and do! I […]
For someone that has never opened up the Illustrator program before, Bonnie was so clear on her teaching and encouraging every step of the way. Before I began my journey with Surface Pattern Design I created my own business called Sweet Melody Designs. The problem was, I wasn’t enjoying the work I was creating and […]
To anyone who is considering the Immersion Course, but uncertain because of the investment or any other reason, I would say this: if you want something that you have never had, you have to do something that you have never done. For a long time, I struggled to find my dream as a creative and […]
Where to start! The content, the delivery, the relevancy, the zoom calls… Bonnie, you were just awesome! Immersion is very well organized and conceived. By following the course, I was able to learn and build patterns with minimal questions or frustration. It has given me a strong desire to put my creativity into the world, […]
Immersion changed my life and gave me the resources I needed to fulfill my dream of working as an artist. Before beginning my journey with Surface Pattern Design I was a stay-at-home mom who created art during nap time. For years, more than a decade, I had a dream of designing surface patterns but I […]
I have such a story to tell, and I don’t know how better to sum it all up except to say that two years ago, I was navigating my way being a single mom of three, determined to find a way to support my family—and now, I can say with confidence that my artwork supports […]
I absolutely loved Immersion! Going through the lessons, live calls and projects gave me such insight into the business of surface pattern design and really gave me the courage to let my dream of being an artist blossom into a reality! Both Flourish and Immersion have been so life giving for me! Immersion was so […]
The best part of Immersion is, without question, the community. I have made so many friends from around the world and they are all beautiful creatures. They embody the true meaning of community. I find the course invaluable, but the community is just incredible. Bonnie fosters a supportive learning environment and it’s almost like leading […]
As someone who has spent a lot of time in school, and taken a lot of classes, I can say that Immersion not only offered an incredible amount of really good content, but it was also taught so well! I went into Immersion thinking I knew Illustrator pretty well, but once I got going I […]
"It is refreshing to find Bonnie who is genuinely excited to share her knowledge with others. She feels that our success is a wonderful thing and it doesn't threaten her. I want to be a Bonnie in this world. I want to feel abundance, not scarcity. There is enough for everyone to succeed, and I want to help others find success. Being in a community with that kind of thinking is priceless."
"The Immersion Course is incredibly comprehensive, providing you with all of the tools necessary to have a successful career in Surface Pattern Design. I had already taken all of Bonnie’s other classes when I signed up for her Immersion Course and wasn’t sure if there was that much more she could teach me. Boy, was I wrong."
...and I'm still coming back for more of Bonnie's content because it is so life giving and encouraging. I've been licensed in many industries including fabric, children's clothing, home decor and the outdoor industry."
