1. Create a Portfolio Page Intro: E. Everyone. My name is Rachel Laing, and I'm a surface pattern designer and illustrator. I've been working in the creative industry for over a decade, and I designed printed illustrations for products that are currently sold in North Strong Target, T. J. Maxx and critiques from coast to coast as well as internationally. Today, I'm going to teach you how to design a single page for your super spatter design portfolio . Now this is pattern design. Industry is very up and coming, and there's a lot of stiff competition. So art directors are saying a ton of work in our in boxes across their desks and your service pattern design portfolio really needs to stand out from the crowd to showcase your unique and beautiful work. Ah, high level of breath design will really set your surface kind of design for a fully off her from the competition in this class. Also, you have to use Adobe Photoshopped that smart objects to create a page template that you could use over and over to create multiple pages for service pending design portfolio. Then, at the end of class, I'll show you how to combine into just together to create a complete portfolio that you could email or printed mail to an art director. So for this class, you're going to need Adobe Twitter shop and at least one service pattern design collection of your artwork for your last product. You want to make one page for your service pattern design portfolio. You can either use the templates that I've created that you can download, or you can follow along in the class and create your own template to your own sizing and design specifications. As a designer, I love looking at everyone else's work as well. So I'm really excited to see your beautiful projects with all of your amazing artwork, So let's go ahead and get started. 2. Lesson 1 - Create Your Template: All right, he everyone, let's get started building our portfolio page in Adobe Photo Shop. But before we get started, I just want to say a word about sizing. So in this tutorial today, I'm going to teach you how to create this 12 inch by 12 inch sized portfolio page. This is my favorite size, and it's the one that I use most often for my portfolio pages. I like the balanced square composition, and I like that you can fit an entire hatter collection onto one page. However, the techniques that I'm teaching you can be used to create any size page such as this 8.5 by 11 here. So it will really be up to you what size you want to make after you finish the tutorial. So let's go ahead and dive in. Of course, we're going to need to create a new document. And as I said, that's going to be 12 inches by 12 inches and we're going to do 300 resolution pixels per inch click create, and there we go Now. The first thing we need to do here is to create the tiles that the patterns watches go onto , So I'm just gonna grab my rectangle tool and draw out my first rectangle. Now I want to duplicate this so that I have multiple tiles. So I'm going to do that by clicking inside the rectangle, holding down the option key and then just dragging another rectangle out and duplicating that again. So I have three. And as you can see here, those pink auto align tools pop up to make sure that they are correctly spaced. And even however, I do want them to be a little bit bigger because they're not really filling the space. So I'm going to select all three of them at once, and I'm going to do that by clicking on the 1st 1 holding down my shift key and clicking in the 2nd 1 and the 3rd 1 So they are all selected, as you can see here in the layers panel. Now I'm going to transform them all at once by hitting command or control T and just dragging them until they fit space the way I want them to. And then I'm going to hit enter to apply that transformation. All right, so now I've got three rectangles, but Of course I'm going to need more. So I'm just going to copy all of these. They are still all selected over here in the layers panel, you can see. So I'm just going to hold down the option key again. Click and drag to duplicate them all at once and again. There are those pink alignment tools popping up so that their correctly centered and equally spaced. So I'm gonna make night. Okay, so now we've got nine rectangles, but they are popping off the page. They're a little too big. So I'm going to want to transform these again all at once. Now I could click, hold down, shift and click on each one of these. But there's a lot more now. So instead I'm going to go to the layers panel, click on the first layer, hold down shift and then click on the last layer and that's gonna go ahead and select them all at once. On again. I'm going to hit command or control T for transform, and I'm going to drag to resize. Now you can see there's a bit of a problem here. The transform tool automatically constrains the proportions, which I don't want in this case because I just want to transform these horizontally on, not vertically. So I'm gonna hold down my shift key. Well, I'm dragging, and that's going to constrain it to that horizontal instead of both of them at once, so I can smush him down, drag them up. And I do want to leave some white space here at the bottom to add my pattern collection name in my logo. But this is a little too small. So again, I'm gonna hold down that shift key and then just drag these up a little and Tiller's more white space, and then I'm going to hit enter to apply that transformation. Now, as I'm looking at these here, I can see that these vertical spaces are a little bit bigger than the horizontal spaces, and I do want to even those out a bit more. So I'm going Teoh de select all the layers by clicking off the site here in this blank space, and then I'm going to select these middle rectangles by clicking, holding down shift and clicking again until all three of them are selected. Then I'm going to use the arrow keys on my keyboard to nudge these guys just a little bit closer. So they are equally distant. And I'm just eyeballing this right now. It looks good to me. So we're gonna call that even now. Of course, we got to do the same thing with these guys, so I'm selecting them all again, and then this time I'm going to actually drag. And since I've already chosen the, uh, space alignment for the other vertical spaces, it's going to auto align this road to match, as you can see here on these little pink markers. So that's pretty easy to do. And then I'm going to hit off the site here. All right, so now there's a little bit bigger of a space on the side, and I want to make sure that these air all centered. So I'm going to select them all again and just drag them so that they are centered on the page. And that looks really nice. Okay, now way have a couple more things to adjust. For one thing, my pattern collection that I'm going to use today for this demo has 10 different patterns. Watches in it, not nine. So I need to add one more rectangle. And for my collections, I like to use different size pattern tiles because some patterns are more detailed and you want to show more of the repeat. And some are very simple, like this polka dot, and they don't need that much of the page space. Additionally, Sometimes I do create a stand alone piece of artwork that coordinates with the collection. And, of course, I want a bigger tile to show that off. So first of all, let's go ahead and add that extra tile, and I'm going to go ahead and put it in the middle row here. So I select control T hold down my shift key and just drag to resize and then scooch this guy up. I'm using those pink alignment tools to make sure that things air. Even here we go, and Photoshopped has, like a nice snapping option, so you can see if I drag it out. It kind of clicks itself back into place when it's in the right area, so that makes it really easy to put things in the proper alignment. And we'll just copy this one down here and make that one little lives a little bit smaller . So now that I've added an extra tile and re sites is a little my horizontal spacings are a little bit off. Now they're just off by a little. But I just want to go ahead and make sure that these air all equaling aligned with each other. So to do that, I'm going to select each rectangle in the row. And then I'm gonna go up to my horizontal distribute tool and by clicking that it distributes everything that you selected an equal distance horizontally so you can make sure that everything is lined up perfectly. All right, so now we've got all of our pattern tiles created, and the next step is to convert them all into smart objects. Smart objects are what is going to allow us to make this into a template that you can use over and over four different pattern collections. So to do that, we're gonna first select a rectangle. I'm gonna go ahead and start with this top one. And as I go, I'm actually going to reorder these and name them in the correct order so that they're easy to find later and well organized. So I'm gonna call this pattern one and then I'm going to go up to layer smart objects Convert to smart object. Now you can see over here in the layers panel instead of having the little shape icon. This layer now has a smart object icon and let me go ahead and show you how smart objects work. So you're gonna double click on that icon and this opens the smart object in a new window. So this is essentially, like a little file that you can update and I will show you how it's done. So let's go ahead and change the color of this rectangle, and I'm going to save it by hitting command or control s, and then you can see that it has updated in a remain file. So this is what we're going to use to drop our patterns into, and you can change them out really quickly and easily. And after you've saved your smart object edits, you can just close that down. And if you want to go into it again, you just double click it. So I'm going to go ahead and convert all of these two smart objects reordering and renaming them as I go said that they're nice and neat, so this will become Pattern number two. - So now we have all of the layers reordered, renamed and converted to smart objects. And before we move on to adding the patterns to the tiles, I just want to show you guys one last thing. So you'll notice on my portfolio pages that I like to add a little drop shattered to the pattern tiles. I think it just adds a little extra dimension and it looks really nice. So let me show you guys how that's done. So we're gonna go ahead and select layer one. Go down here to this little effects button. Click that and then you simply add drop shadow. Here's the drop shadow options. You can adjust a number of things, such as how dark it is. You can adjust the angle where the lighting is coming from. You can adjust the distance of the shadow away from the object, and you can adjust how big it is. Um, and how blurry it is and all of that stuff. I typically like to just have kind of a small drop shadow, just a little bit of an extra you know effect, but nothing too dramatic. And there we go when we make that a little larger, all right, and then once you've adjusted it to your liking, you hit OK and you can see the drop shadow has been applied. Now, if you decide you don't want that for any reason, you simply turn it off by clicking the little eyeball button here. And then you're going to want to go through and at that drop, shattered to every layer. You don't need to adjust it every time it will remember the last settings that you used. So it's a simple click. Click and way will be done already. So that's the end of Lesson one. We have created all of our pattern tiles. We have converted them to smart objects, and we have added a drop shadow. Next up is the fun part, which is putting the patterns into the template. So let's go 3. Lesson 2 - Add Your Artwork: Okay, so for lesson two, we're going to do all of the fun stuff which is adding our patterns to these tiles and our collection, name and logo. So there's a couple different ways you can add your patterns to these tiles. Watches first and foremost. Let's go ahead and open up this smart object. Now you're going to go ahead and add your J peg or PNG pattern image by going to file place embedded and then choosing your file from whatever location you've saved it in and hitting place, and then you're going to hit, return or enter. To place that file, you can go ahead and move it around and duplicate or resize it until it looks good to you. And then you're going to get command or control s to save those changes, and you can check back to your main file and you can see that it's been updated here. So that's the first way to add a file. You could also add your pattern files directly from Adobe Illustrator, if that's how you work. So let's go ahead and open up this smart object. Now I have this pattern collection open in Adobe Illustrator so I'm just going to create a rectangle and add the pattern feel that I want to use. And then I can go ahead and select that rectangle and hit command. See to copy it, click right back over to Adobe Photo Shop and hit command V to paste. And I always select paste as pixels. It doesn't need to be a smart object hit, okay. And weight, depending on how big that pattern file is, then I can just drag resize and hit, enter to place and hit Command s to save. And there you can see this one is updated as well. So that is a really easy way to simply add your pattern files directly from Adobe Illustrator. If you work in illustrator no exporting necessary. Now I'm going to go ahead and fill in all the rest of these pattern tiles with the rest of the patterns for my collection. Okay, so now I've got all of my pattern tiles placed, and I just want to give my board a look over and kind of check the composition. And what I mean by that is I want to make sure my colors are evenly distributed. Say for instance, I want to make sure these move red tones aren't all on the same row so that they're a bit spread out across the board. Or maybe they weren't all a bunch of dark patterns right next to each other. You know, you want to make sure that they have sort of an even layout. Another thing I wanted check is that the patterns are sized appropriately. So, for instance, for a pattern like this that's pretty detailed and has a lot of motifs, I want to make sure that it's not too big or too small. If I made it really large so that this moon took up the whole space, you know you wouldn't really be able to get a scope of the detail in this pattern. However, if I made it more small, like these butterflies, that's a much simpler pattern. You know, all of this detail would really get lost. So you want a double check and make sure that your sizes are appropriate. So the last thing that I want to double check is that none of the patterns are too close to a similar pattern. And as you can see here, I've made that mistake with my star patterns there, right next to each other. And I don't really like the way that looks. So I want to switch this up a little, and I think that I'm going to go ahead and exchange thes tope eyes with this lighter star pattern. So the way I'm going to do that is I'm just going to open Thies, too. Smart objects now for this star pattern. I'm just going to copy this layer directly into the eyes. Smart object by hitting command or control a to select everything and then command see to copy that. And then I'm going to click over to this smart object and hit command or control V to Paste . And then I'll just go ahead and delete these unnecessary eyes and hit command or control s to save the smart object. And you can see it has been updated over here. So I need Teoh update this to have my tope eyes. And instead of copying and pasting, I'm just going to go ahead and replace the J. Paige's for this. So I'm gonna delete the star layer, and then I was going to go up to file place embedded and replace my ice watch and that I'm just gonna copy that again. So I have a full repeat command s there it is. And I'll just close that ice more object down. Okay, great. I really like the way this looks gets a lot better. So now we can move on to the next step of adding the patter collection name and the logo. Now, if you don't have a logo, that's fine. You can also just add your name and your contact information in text. And that looks really good, too. So for a lot of my collections, I like to create a little pattern name illustration on my iPad using procreate. And then I just export that as a PNG and just drop it into my photoshopped file. However, if you don't want to do that, you can also create a really nice looking tech space pattern collection. Name will simply add some text to this photo shop file, and I'm going to call this collection boho celestial, which is not a very creative collection name, but I am actually not a very creative pattern collection name. Er I prefer to do the art and not so much the naming, so I'm going to add my text. It's too small, obviously. So I'm going to transform it by hitting command or control T and then just dragging to Reese ice. And I think that looks pretty good. Let's center it up in this space and zoom out a little. Yes, so I like the sizing on that. It's nice it doesn't take up too much space now when you're choosing off, Want to name your Petr collection? Of course, you want to pay attention to the tone and style of the fought. So you want to pick something that really matches the vibe of your pattern collection, Of course. So this fall it looks really good with this collection. But, for example, say I was to choose this sort of boring computer type font. Now this font really doesn't say either boho or celestial. It doesn't match the look in feeling of my patter collection all. It's pretty boring in what it really says is text document or computer program, so that would not be a great choice. Of course, Adobe Photoshopped comes with a lot of great fonts, so I'm sure you'll be able to find something that really matches the style of your Petr collection. But if you want, you could also look around the Internet on sites like Creative Market for different, unique fonts to experiment with as well. So once you selected your font, you want to make sure that it is a color that coordinates well with your pattern collection . And I really liked add one of the little motifs from my patterns to give it more of a designed feel and give. It may be more of a logo type look, so you can either export one of your motifs as a PNG and drop it in. Or, if you're working with adobe illustrator patterns, you can simply select one of your motifs. Hit command, see to copy it, click back over to photo shop and hit command V to paste it in place. And then you can resize it as needed. No exporting necessary. That's a little too big. So let's make it smaller. All right, so let's check that, all right, I think that looks really nice. It definitely goes well with the pattern collection and looks really clean. So now the last step is to go ahead and add the logo. So I'm just going Teoh place my logo, which I've saved out as a PNG file, and I'm going to resize it to fit this space there. Okay, that looks good. And then I want to re color it so that it coordinates with my pattern collection. So I'm going to go down here to this FX, and then I'm going to pick color overlay, and then you can pick what color you want the overlay to beat. But I do like that rusty terra cotta color. So you want that to be set on normal at 100% opacity and then hit, OK, and then that just re colors my logo and you can see that it's easy to turn it on and off if you don't want to do that. So this method works well because my logo is a PNG with a transparent background. If you had saved your logo as a JPEG, you wouldn't want to re color it like this because it will just re color the whole rectangle to be that color, and you wouldn't be able to see your logo. Now, As I said before, if you don't have a logo, you can just add your information as text. So let's go ahead and imagine I don't have a logo. I'm just going to put my name whoops and resize that a little bit. And then I would just also add my contact information or maybe my instagram handle and let's make that a little bit larger as well. But I don't want it to be as big as my name. And there we go. So, as you can see, even if you don't have a logo, you can still make it look really nice and professional by adding your name and contact info. I would say that if you're going to do this, make sure that the font you choose is legible. And it's not a script or a handwriting style fun, because you want somebody to be able to read this easily and get a hold of you and I know who you are. So that's really it. We have completed the entire portfolio page, and as you can see, it is fairly simple to do, and it looks really amazing. Now you're going to want to save this as a PSD file so that you can re use it as a template to add other pattern collections you like. You'll also want to save this as a JPEG, because after you've created a number of different collection pages, you can combine them together into a pdf to make the portfolio, which is what I'm going to show you in the next lesson. 4. Lesson 3 - Combining Pages: ready. So welcome toe Lesson three. Now that we have completed our portfolio page, I'm going to show you how to combine multiple portfolio pages into one. PdF. There are two ways that I do this and they each have their pros and cons. So the first way is to create an Adobe Illustrator document. So you're going to create a new document using the same dimensions as your portfolio page, which in my case is 12 inches by 12 inches. And then you're going to create as many art boards as you have portfolio pages, which for me is six for this demo hit create and you can see it makes a file with the's six art boards, and they're all 12 inches by 12 inches. So now I'm going to add my J Peg portfolio pages. We'll go ahead and start with the one that I just made, and I'm simply dragging and dropping them onto the document. You could also go to file place, navigate to the location that you have saved your file and place that way, and I am just arranging them so that each J Peg is on its own individual art board. So Let's go ahead and add the rest of these. So now that we have each JPEG placed on its individual art bored I'm going to go ahead and go to file Save as, uh, and I'm going to save it as a PdF. And make sure that use art boards is selected and all is selected and all. Just call this test portfolio and I'm going to hit Save Now the Pdf options are going to come up. Uhm, I'm going to just make sure that on the compression and says, Do not down sample and I'm not going to adjust anything else. And I'm just going to hit Save PdF. So let's go ahead and hop over to our desktop and you can see our pdf has been created. Let's go ahead and look at this with a preview. All right. Now that is a beautiful looking portfolio. It's super professional, and it's beautifully high resolution. There's only one problem to creating a PdF in this method, and that is that the final size is really large, and art directors really don't like to receive large file sizes, so there is a way we can compress this. PDF or make a PdF that is a lot smaller, and that is by using an online PdF tool like I love pdf dot com, which is the one I use now. This does have free options. You can use this a couple of times a day for free. However, you can't use it indefinitely, and it does have some file size upload restrictions. But there are a lot of really excellent tools here. So for one thing, you can compress a PdF, so I would be able to drop that giant pdf in, and then it would compress it and I could download a compressed version. And you can also convert J Pegs two p d EFS, which is what I'm going to show you how to do so as I said there. So, as I said, you can use this for free, but it is limited. I do pay for this monthly to get the premium account. I think it's around 10 or $11 a month, and to me it's completely invaluable because I can do as many actions as I like, and there is no file upload size limit, and I do create quite a lot of pdf's to send to art directors and clients all the time, so it's very worth it. Timmy, if you're just creating one or maybe two PDFs, then you probably don't need to spend any money on this. So in order to create a PdF from my J Peg files and going to go to this Jay picked PdF option, and then I'm going to navigate over to where I have my different JPEG files saved out. So I'm simply going to select all these J pegs and drag and drop them into this window, and then they upload into this little dashboard. You can choose the orientation of your page size, and you can choose what size of page you want to create. So it automates to this. A four size You can also select fit, which just crops it to the exact size of your page, which is what I want in this case, because these are 12 by 12 squares and then I always choose no margin and click. Merge all images into one pdf file, and then you'll convert it to a pdf. So the great thing about this tool is not only does it merge the J pegs into a PdF. It compresses it as well. So I'm gonna go ahead and download that So you can see here that the size is a way smaller than the Adobe Illustrator. PdF. And this would be fine to send out to people. And although the quality is not quite as high resolution and crisp as Theodore B. Illustrator one, it still looks really fantastic. So that is two different ways that you can create a PdF portfolio from your J. Pegs. As I said, they each have their pros and cons. The Illustrator one is fairly easy to create an extremely high resolution, but the final size is gigantic. Creating one on I love pdf dot com is also really easy. But you can only do a certain number of actions per day, and you might have files that are too big for the free version, so you may have to pay for an account, but either one will provide a really good result. And that is it, folks. We have created our beautiful pattern page, so let's go discuss the class project 5. Your Class Project: So let's go ahead and discuss the class project. Of course, you're going to make a single page for your surface pattern design portfolio. Now I've gone ahead and created a couple different sizes of template for you guys, including this 12 by 12 inch one. So it has a bunch of smart objects, just like the ones I should you have to make. They are all ordered and numbered, so they're very easy to use. And I've also created smart objects for the collection, name and logo so you could go ahead and update these in the same way that I showed you in the tutorial. If you made a separate collection name as a PNG, you could just open this smart object and drop it in same with the logo space. Or, if you want to add that information like I showed you in the tutorial by simply typing it on there, you can hide these layers and just go ahead and add that content. Now, along with this 12 by 12 size, I've gone ahead and made two different 8.5 by 11 sizes, a portrait version and a landscape version. And as you can see, they have a slightly different configuration for your pattern set up. This one has more of a main pattern, with three supporting patterns, and this one has four of the same size, very tall and narrow pattern sluts. So which type of page you want to make is dependent on your pattern collection, How many patterns you have and just what you wanted to look like. Of course.
