Here is what my students are saying about the course:

"Pattern It Up course was really useful for me. I am able to work really super fast with this pattern design system. And I know how to plan my work and grow my skills. And how to market my patterns in different ways. The most useful parts were Symbols on Repeat system, actions, creating online shops. Keep teaching us more and more:)"

- Prarthana Moorthy, beta student of Pattern It Up course

"I am no longer afraid of Adobe Illustrator. In fact, I look forward to the time I set aside to work with the program. Also, I really enjoy Oksancia's voice. You just hear the enthusiasm and encouragement coming out of it."

- Erica Diazoni, beta student of Pattern It Up course

"I watched so many courses of pattern design and illustrator skills, they were very good and helpful, but Oksana made the first course for pattern designers who want to grow their business quickly and successfully. I like very much her vision and tips and tricks in illustrator. Work with these directions is simple and so efficient."

"Pattern It Up course covers it all! From cumulating creative idea to presenting, and the bonus Powerful Pattern Prompts mini course really help! And it is suitable for a learner which has zero backgrounds, all explained very clear"

- Elfi Yang , Co-Founder, Impressive Company

"When I saw your video about the Pattern It Up course and began using your Symbols on Repeat system, I knew that this was the missing piece that I had needed to get my patterns to the next level. If someone is wondering about purchasing the course, I would tell them that it is worth so much more beyond the price of the course. The templates and set of actions that come with the Symbols on Repeat
template have really changed my way of working for the better. I will never go back to the old way now that I have these valuable tools and amazing course knowledge!"

- Lori Krout, https://www.lorikroutdesign.com, owner of Lori Krout Design, beta student of Pattern It Up course

"I think it is an excellent course as I've learned much. The most helpful part of the course for me was the automation side of making patterns that frees up my time to make more patterns. I also liked the way Pattern It Up shows the way to organize my files."

- Jimena Garcia, beta student of Pattern It Up course

"I'd been learning bits and pieces of pattern design for a few months when I found your Pattern It Up course. I was hoping to find an all-in-one resource to be able to put together my disjointed *very* beginner pattern making skills - but what I found was so much MORE. You're not just teaching how to make a pattern, but how to put together a comprehensive and practical system for creating collections and selling what you make. I've found the lessons to be so full of useful information that I'm watching the videos multiple times. I find I learn something new every time I go through a lesson again:)

Really, I can't thank you enough for generously sharing your knowledge and experience in this course! "

- Kathy Hunnicutt, beta student of Pattern It Up course
