About This Class

In this class I am going to show how to design a pattern backgrounds using only your tablet. And how to prepare it for a print on demand jobs. No PC or MAC is needed. You will need only your iPad.

You can use print on demand for products for your own use for example giving an original gift for someone with a design pattern that you made.Or you can make a side leaving from uploading your designs and people will buy the products and you will get payed for your design.This class is for beginners. Even if you think that you can't draw you will be able to make the assignment of this class.

Wow, fantastic class! I can see endless hours of fun and patterns ahead. This is exactly what I wanted. I purchased iOrnament recently, but it has proven a little frustrating and just last night I was wondering if I it was going to be at all useful to me. So I did a search for it in Skillshare and this class showed up. This is exactly what I want, to create patterns for merchandise on Society 6 and other POD services. This class clearly explains exactly how to do that. Thank you so much Viki!
Fantastic Class! Very useful and clearly articulated. Fantastic workflow advice. Thank You!
Yes! I recommend this class. Wow!!! what a class. As a premium subscriber I watched a lot of surface pattern design classes on skillshare, but this short class has so, so much in such little time, I learned a lot, for someone that is not super experienced in surface pattern and although I am a fashion designer I am not drawing a lot by hand but instead I do a lot of digital sketching, so this is a great start for a beginner to experience surface pattern designer because you still get to learn three different applications for one purpose, making surface patterns and also how to bring your work to Society six to sell it. Awesome!!! can't get better than this, Instructor also just explained things well without wasting too much time, just simple and concise, I look forward to follow her for more classes.
