In this boot camp we focus on why certain prints work, why others do not and how you can implement design elements to make each print, specifically your moneymaker print, a slam dunk.

What is a moneymaker print you ask? A moneymaker print is that main print in your collection that draws customers and buyers into your booth, website or portfolio. Since this is the main print in your collection, it is imperative that it has that wow factor that buyers will find irresistible.

These lessons, tools, tips and tricks are going to give your prints that wow factor that will change the way you think about designing prints in patterns.

    Awesome Material to Develop Perfect Prints!!
    The course helped understand the basics when designing. Colors, textures, shapes and all can make so much difference. I have already started implementing the basics on my very first collection that I am working upon for the Sellable Sketch E-course. I think the lab is well organized for a person like me who needs guidance as I design.
    Awesome Course…
