Photoshop Lessons that Turbo-Charge Your Skillset
Finally learn to create industry-standard repeats.
If there's one important Photoshop skill to have as a Fabric Print designer, it's repeating patterns.
What's a repeating pattern? Known in the trade as just a 'repeat,' it maps your design to run over an endless length of fabric such that it appears over and over again. Elements are seamlessly interlaced and there are no definitive 'edges' to your design. It can either be very tricky to achieve or it can be very simple – when you know the correct technique.
Learn our methods for square repeats and half drop repeats and whizz through the process with ease. Its a must for all textile pattern designers.
Elevate your compositions with our fail-proof fundamentals.
Whether your layouts are looking too similar, or you want to design with more impact (or both!), you'll find your fix here.
We dive into Adobe Photoshop for textile design, explain how to create flow in chapter 4 of the course video and outline numerous other ways to amp up your designs with side-by-side comparisons in our bonus Composition Series.
Create a stand-out print collection with the right mix of styles.
We give you an easy-peasy formula to collate a strong collection.
This exclusive downloadable preps you for successful client meetings.

More from our students...
"This course provides a clear step by step guide of the specific techniques industry uses to translate a hand sketch to a fully realised production ready print. With any creative project in photoshop there are always multiple ways of of arriving at the same end result and their step by step guide streamlines this process. Their insider tips gleaned from their entire team are valuable tricks of the trade- many of which can be applied to other design/graphic/fashion related projects."
"I especially like learning the workflow you use when creating your prints - at what point you create the layout, the repeat, separations, colourways, etc. I have mostly worked as an in-house designer, not for a print studio, but now after completing this course I freelance, for different types of clients, selling and licensing prints as well as freelance for product development."
"Your instruction and techniques more than I would others, specifically those of individuals who have never worked in the fashion or textile print industry. The workbooks are really well done and invaluable as a companion references. I think it's important to have good reference material. It's sometimes quicker to refer to that than to replay video. Overall, I am happy I purchased both courses (and your earlier courses) as they have met or exceeded my expectations."
We poured our time, money and collective expertise into this course and we KNOW you will notice a difference in your designs in a matter of weeks (when you put the work in!).
If, for some reason, this course doesn't meet your expectations we offer a 100% refund on your investment, within 30 days of purchase.
