About This Class

Colors are so important for the overall look of your designs and a color palette can really make or brake a pattern. In this class I will teach you the way I work with colors. You will learn the techniques that I use to develop my own color style and how you can use the same techniques to develop yours. I will show you how I work with color palettes and different colorways of patterns and I will even take you through my process of making a second colorway of a whole collection. We will talk about how and where to gather color inspiration and how to work with different color modes, such as CMYK, RGB and PANTONE when designing patterns.

You can use the skills that you learn in this class to build a stronger signature style and brand and to expand your portfolio with more colorways of existing patterns. To take this class you need to have basic knowledge of pattern design and have at least one finished pattern that you can use in the class project. I use Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Draw in this class, so it’s good to have a basic understanding of at least Illustrator to be able to keep up.

If you’re interested in developing a colour style of your own or just in how to make your current style more cohesive and learn how to make palettes and colorways for your patterns - join me in this fun and inspiring class that is all about colors.
