About This Class

In this class I'll teach you how to create a seamless, repeating pattern using Adobe Illustrator. 

We'll talk about:

  • Using color
  • Creating a seamless composition
  • Testing your pattern
  • Using Mockups to impress your clients

I'll walk you through a few ways you can create the seamless tile, and the whole process I used in Adobe Illustrator. 

I can't wait to see what you create, the opportunities are endless!
