Before I started my Surface Pattern Design journey, I was a stay-at-home mom and a graphic designer with 15 years of corporate design experience under my belt. I needed to go back into the workforce after a 5-year hiatus and really didn’t want to do the same thing I had been doing before. I needed […]
The inspiration and motivation I experienced during the course propelled me forward and set the tone for my most productive and successful year up until that point. After Immersion 2020, I put a website and portfolio together, started pitching to clients, and signed three licensing contracts within the year! In 2021, I landed my first fabric collection […]
Immersion changed my life! I’ve always been creative but the course opened up my eyes and mind to a whole new world. I’m now doing exactly what I feel is my life calling. Surface pattern design is my passion and doing this every day is such a blessing. Bonnie’s course projected my creative career and […]
After graduating with a Fine Art degree, I was looking for a creative career that would support me financially and also fulfill me. I realized that I absolutely love patterns and that I could design them, but I was overwhelmed with the idea of learning new software that I wasn’t very familiar with. I stumbled […]
Before I joined Immersion, I had been working for myself for 4 years as a multidisciplinary designer and illustrator. I realized that I had been working in a Shadow Career (so aptly put in The Artists Way) and what I really wanted to do was become a full-time artist and share my art with the […]
Before the Immersion Course, I was self-employed as a Creative Director and Designer. I wanted to take the Immersion Course because I love doing deep dives into learning new skills to expand my creative practice. I had created patterns before but wanted to make sure to learn as much as I could from Bonnie. When […]
The community and the energy will always top the list for me! I’m a big believer in putting yourself in a room with the people you aspire to be in a community with. Find a room of people chasing dreams, leveling up, and bravely putting themselves out there, and watch the magic happen as the […]
I’m a watercolor artist who was a self-taught pattern designer selling my designs on Spoonflower before I found Bonnie and her programs. I created all my designs in Photoshop and didn’t know a lick about Illustrator or the design business. I wanted to learn more about surface pattern design as I started to get asked […]
Before I took Immersion I already had a design business and had licensed a range of designs with companies around the world, but since I’m a self-taught designer I have had to piecemeal my education on my own, which always made me feel a bit insecure about not having a formal education to lean on […]
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 my journey with Surface Pattern Design, I was working as a teacher and creating products to sell at art shows, on the side. I love to sew and have always wished to see my designs on fabric, but it seemed so far out of reach & I never thought it would be […]
Before I jumped into the Surface design world, I had been designing, sewing, and selling baby clothing on my Etsy store. I was always swamped with orders! The money was great but I had 3 children (with another on the way) and a husband who I was losing out on time spent with them. When […]
This past year has been my first to break through the six figure mark. Thanks to Bonnie, it feels like it’s just the beginning! Working as a graphic designer, I’ve learned early on that the way to keep an edge and stay valuable and relevant to your clients and industry was to continue to learn, […]
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 […]
"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."
