Rachelle, Seattle WA
"Longina Phillips are masters at creating beautiful, flowing and non-obvious repeating patterns. I like that they show you how to create seamless repeats (and not just a straight repeat). I also learned new methods for recoloring motifs that I now use all the time in my workflow."

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.
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 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.
