About This Class

This class is about creating surface patterns and is a perfect introduction for beginners. In this class, you will learn about the Scandinavian style of design. Which is characterized by simple forms and clean lines, adding elegance to such designs, without affecting its functionality.

Scandinavian influence in pattern design is nothing new. It's widely used in brand identities, modernist graphic designs, furnishing, and interior decors.

The most mesmerizing feature of such an elegant style is how things are boiled down from complexity to something very simple. Something very pleasing to the eyes. In this class, we are gonna be talking about how to start working on a piece of a surface pattern. And how to minimize the details of an element in the design.

If you are familiar with Adobe Illustrator, then great. If not then you still can easily follow this class. We will learn how to digitize pattern sketches. How to mix and complete the puzzle pieces while designing a repeating pattern.

You will learn quite a few things related to the smooth workflow of how patterns are designed. How to break down an object into simple shapes. How you can try different color moods in the same pattern design, without touching individual elements of the design. You will love the creative control while designing such patterns.

Finally, you will learn how to use this patterns for different purposes and end use in mind.

I welcome you to all to my class.

Very detailed step by step instructions for researching and creating Scandinavian art (techniques will apply to any style of art), instructions for creating simple sketches and using illustrator to turn the sketches to vectors. Also, how to use the completed art to apply to products. I recommend this class for anyone interested in surface design, and I will check out the rest of his classes now.
this teacher is soooo good!
