About This Class

In this class I'll show you how to create a beautiful William Morris inspired pattern in three different techniques. We’ll begin with a simple repeat pattern using Offset filter in Photoshop and continue with more intuitive seamless pattern. In the third part I’ll show you how to create 100% analog motif just with a Xerox and your imagination:)

By the end of this 100-minute class you’ll learn some important principles of pattern design and will be able to incorporate it in your own work. Both advanced and beginner creatives can find valuable insights in this class. 

Lessons include:

  • Inspiration advice
  • Digital inking and colouring
  • Pattern design tips
  • Repeat pattern
  • Seamless pattern
  • 100% Hand-drawn analog pattern

And there is a GIVEAWAY! Post your pattern design before 31th of August for a chance to win a beautiful Italian notebook and one more surprise from me!;)
