About This Class


If you have a collection of patterns and want to create a lookbook including some placement graphics, mock-ups and your information then this class is what you are looking for.

We will start planning our lookbook to create it later in Illustrator, inserting all those elements. You'll learn how to export your lookbook as PDF, upload it to the Internet to get a shareable link and also how to insert links in your lookbook.

Once we've finished our lookbook in Illustrator we will see how to create a template in Photoshop to have it ready to use for other collections. We'll see how to export the lookbook as a multipage PDF document using Photoshop.

For this class you'll need a collection of pattern or some patterns as a sample of your work if you want to create a portfolio, some mock-up images with your patterns, your picture and some text for the sections About me/Get in touch/About your collection. For this class we are going to be using Illustrator and Photoshop although you can choose just one of them if you prefer.

For this class you will need to have some patterns to use in the mock-ups that we will be creating, internet, Photoshop and Illustrator. If you don't have them instaled in your computer you can get a free trial in these links:


To upload your lookbook to Issuu you will need to create an account, here you have the link:
