About This Class

In this class you will learn how to create a look book and publish it online. This is a technical class where we will focus on how to actually create the look book and the tools to use. I will show you how to do this both in Adobe Indesign and in Illustrator, so that you can compare both workflows and use the one you prefer. We will go through the basics and you can be a complete beginner at both Adobe Indesign and Illustrator to take this class.

Look books are a great way to showcase your artwork and make possible clients visualise how your designs could look on their products and your artwork will look polished and professional when you present in a look book.

This class is for you who wants to learn how to create a look book for pattern design. But you could use the same technique if you’re an illustrator who want to showcase your work, a graphic designer who work with for example branding projects or if you just want to learn how to create a digital book and publish it online.

It’s completely free to publish a look book online and you can even embed it on your website to add a little extra flair to your digital portfolio. In this class we will use the publishing platform www.issuu.com
