We teamed up with stationery designer and the genius behind MaeMae & Co, Megan Gonzalez, to create a fun and easy course for all you pattern patrons out there. In her class, you’ll not only be inspired by her pretty mood boards, but you’ll also get insider tips on how to use colors and shapes together. Plus, you’ll walk away from the class knowing how to:

  1. Use basic Adobe Illustrator tools.
  2. Draw, design and scale abstract shapes to create custom patterns.
  3. Print and produce your patterns for use on various surfaces.

And with a course purchase, you’ll also have access to exclusive, pre-designed pattern templates that Megan created to make it super easy to get started.


The best thing about this online class is that it opens you up to a new set of creative skills that you can use in all aspects of your everyday life.
