Julie, Hobart TAS

"I had been struggling to find this information, so I was delighted when [this course] was released, and it didn't disappoint. The course was comprehensive and included lots of insider tips that just aren't available anywhere else."

Elizabeth, Melbourne VIC

"I learnt a lot and very different to what I learnt at Uni. It's much more specific to the workplace and there are a lot of clever short-cuts used to speed up design work."

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."

Charis

The way we see it, you have two options!

Option 2:

You learn our fail-proof methods, refined over 30 years in the business. On completion of the course, and with practice, you turn out dynamic, saleable designs at speed.

 Skip the stumbles. Take the shortcut! It will save you $1000s in the long run.

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. 

This exclusive downloadable preps you for successful client meetings.

Turn up with the right designs, know what to expect and quash any concerns... then nail the sale!
