A FEW REVIEWS FROM MY FIRST COURSE:
So inspirational, very informative, this is the best class I have taken on Skillshare to date. I am a seasoned illustrator user but I still learned so much. Thank you Bonnie Christine. Cavell Ferguson
I loved this class! I’ve always wanted to design patterns and never knew where to start. Thank you so much Bonnie Christine! You really made me understand every single step, you’re a very good teacher, I can’t wait for your upcoming class. Greetings from Mexico! Carla Antillón
Intro to Surface Pattern Design + Learn Adobe Illustrator does exactly that. It’s a great in-depth course on the fundamentals of Adobe Illustrator and how it pertains to the world of creating surface/repeating patterns. Bonnie speaks clearly and slowly throughout the videos and she expertly takes you through the various tool bars and menus of Illustrator. I think it’s one of the best comprehensive classes I’ve ever taken on the subject of pattern design and Adobe Illustrator. Thanks for taking the time to make these series of videos, Bonnie! Adriana Bergstrom
The illustrator tips and shortcuts alone were worth the price of admission (and I thought I knew illustrator!) I learned SO much before we even got into the designing. Once we got into designing it was like a whole ‘nother class. I highly recommend this class. It’s a two-fer. Kara Garrett
i hope you’ll come join us for surface pattern design 2.0 over on skillshare now!
