About This Class


Welcome to Mastering Vector Textures! In this class I'm going to teach you how I take ordinary images and turn them into great vector textures that you can apply to your designs. I'll supply a whole bunch of photographs (and the final vector textures) and walk you through the entire process using both Photoshop and Illustrator.

At the end of the class I'll also be showing you how I apply the vector textures to my designs.

Everyone who takes the class will also get a free copy of my font called Regress (normally retails for $12)! 

Be sure to check out my Instagram and my YouTube channel to see some more of my work!
