About This Class
In this class, first and foremost we'll get clever. The best ideas are inspired by humor. We'll brainstorm a fun idea for whatever occassion you choose. (gifts are most fun when they're unexpected, so be creative!). Then, you'll choose a color palette, learn how basic shapes in illustrator can create beautiful, intricate designs, and finally, we'll add texture in Photoshop to add a bit of character.
The end result will be a pattern you created that showcases your wit - and of course your generosity. And I'll also show you how to prepare your document for printing.
Let's get started!

Finally, someone who uses the make pattern feature in Illustrator. Excellent class, I learned a ton.
I'm currently working in New York City but a native of sunny Miami. I'm an associate creative director at Genuine Interactive by day, and an illustrator deep down in my insides all the time at arterdesignist.com
I've created patterns for merchandise that has sold on Gilt.com and Fab.com, and am possibly most recognized for illustrating Nerdy Dirty: Illustrations for Nerds in Love, a collection of designs I made just for fun! The most inspired work happens when you're having fun, so..let's have some fun designing!
