“Finally I know exactly how to be creative every day and support myself and my family with my art!”

It was 2007 and I was sitting in front of the computer screen excited and terrified to click and type one word of text for the first time... The form on the screen was asking me: "Illustrator" or "Photographer"? Well, I was definitely not a photographer, but I was terrified to select "Illustrator" as if it meant stating to the whole world that I AM AN ARTIST... Finally, I got brave and clicked. There it was! Right next to my name. I am a professional artist now :) That was the form registration to start selling my vector art online on one of the best websites at the time.

Yep, I was self-taught and very nervous about it. Despite that, I spent a long time studying vector software and creating my first designs. I did not know what I was doing and if anyone would buy my art and designs. I was afraid to show my artwork to anyone, but now it will be for sale.

✦ Will anyone buy?

✦ Is my art good enough?

✦ Can I use Adobe Illustrator to create professional work?

✦ Will it take too much of my time?

✦ Adobe Illustrator scares me!

Despite these fears, I started creating and uploading my first designs and slowly got more and more comfortable. There were almost no information and tutorials online on how to create sellable vector designs so I had to create my systems over time and improve upon my designs and my Adobe Illustrator skills. It took time, but I loved creating art every day. It brought me so much joy that I kept going.

One morning I woke up to my first sale!

There it was, somebody literally bought one of my designs while I was sleeping :-O What a morning! It felt like Christmas! It felt much better than Christmas, actually. I stared at that screen for a loooooong time ;)


It was the moment when I realized that my dream of being an independent designer is possible and that it's up to me to make it happen! It got me sooo excited that I went straight to my computer and got designing more and more...I probably forgot about food, shower, sleep for a while ;)

Since that first sale, I worked and got better and better. Now after more than 12 years since that day I wake up to hundreds of sales each and every morning from many of my online portfolios. They are all automated so I can go to create my art right away if I want to. I am free to be creative every day and if I need to, just take care of my small daughter or even take a break to exercise or travel with my family.

And every morning it still feels like Christmas ;)


There is another part to this story...

Around 2011 I discovered repeat pattern designs. I loved them right away and after a while, I was able to build a creative business of my dreams. It was all due to the amazing power of vector repeat pattern designs and the systems that me and my husband created to save a lot of time designing, saving, and uploading vector repeat patterns in Adobe Illustrator.

You might have the same dream: you really want to create a stable, lifestyle business doing what you love - being creative every day!


✪ Do you love creating art and designs?

Would you like to spend your time being creative and see it sell every day automatically?

✪ Does it sound great to see your designs on physical products in stores?

✪ Want to finally be confident that designs you are creating will sell and moreover bring stable passive income?

✪ Do you like the idea of working with amazing clients one day and creating your own line of products?


If yes, then repeat pattern design is for you and you are in the right place. Welcome! :)


Imagine how good it feels to...

🕒 In a few months (maybe even weeks) - celebrate the first sales of your art

🕒 In 1 year - have stable growing sales and have your own portfolio with gorgeous pattern collection

🕒 In 2 years - collaborate with brands and see your designs on products in the store

🕒 In 5 years - have your own line of lovely products that are all your creations if you want

There is no limit to what you can create!


Let's compare to not taking action today...

to doing nothing while going back to wondering how other artists and designers create the amazing lifestyle and dream businesses for themselves.

🕒 In a few months - wish you knew how other artists are doing it.

🕒 In 1 year - promise yourself again to go after your dreams, but quit as you don't know where to start.

🕒 In 2 years - try for a few weeks and give up because you are not sure if it is working.

🕒 In 5 years - continue wishing that one day you will...one day...


My amazing, creative friend, let me share one of the wisest things I learned on my creative journey:

 

The years will pass no matter what, but in a year from now, you will wish that you had started today.

I'd love to save you time

The great news is that I discovered and came up with a lot of time-saving systems, actions, templates, tools that will cut down your time spent on learning and creating by MONTHS or even years. I took me 12 years to create these systems, but you can learn them, implement and see results in just a few weeks.


Imagine a world where...

___

You create art and designs with joy

You know what kinds of designs sell

You have your system and feel organized

You have daily sales that grow more and more

 

Let's pattern it up! :)

I saw that I was not alone and that many talented, creative people felt lost about where to start to create income with their art.

That's why I created the Pattern It Up course.

I wanted to give fellow creative designers a way to learn how to make their own, unique vector repeat pattern designs, create pattern collections and start selling them online and licensing their work while building a creative business of their dreams. The tools that save me so much time are all included in this course for you to get started in no time.

Pattern It Up course is a complete, step-by-step system of learning to design repeat pattern collections really quickly while having fun. You'll be selling your designs online and building your unique brand as a textile designer as you go!

 

Introducing Pattern It Up online course!

This is my unique step-by-step system of creating vector repeat patterns and pattern collections in Adobe Illustrator using custom templates, scripts, and actions that will save you WEEKS of time creating your designs every year, save and prepare patterns the right way to be accepted and sold on online platforms, and start marketing your repeat pattern designs and your new skills as a surface pattern designer to get client projects if you decide.


What you will achieve during this course:

  • You will create a vector pattern collection consisting of 10 patterns on a topic that sells.
  • A custom system that lives within any Adobe Illustrator CC version and helps you create and prepare patterns for sale lighting fast.
  • You own online shops that sell your pattern designs as you sleep.
  • Your own marketing system to find potential customers for pattern design projects.

Here is what my student Mindy shared about the course:

 
In this course we cover everything...
✦ Setting up Adobe Illustrator and selecting the best tools for your budget,

✦ Choosing the topic and creating your first repeat pattern collection using my custom templates, scripts, and tools all ready for you to use and included in this course,

Saving and naming your files so that they work for you and not you work on finding them on your computer over and over,

✦ Getting your files ready for selling online on microstock and print-on-demand websites as well as ready for delivery to your customers when the time comes.

Passing entry exams to microstocks (don't worry, it's easy when you know what to do),

Presenting your designs like a pro.

"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."

And here are more of my amazing students sharing their feedback about the course:

"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

You might be thinking, will it work for YOU?

If you are willing to put an effort into learning the system and take time implementing it, you are very likely to achieve success. Just please keep in mind, this is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme! This is a creative business that brings you lots of joy and satisfaction as well as income, but you need to work on it as on any good thing in your life.

+ I give you a generous 30-day money back guarantee, so you can try it and see for yourself with no risk for you.

But, I don't have time!

My course is designed in a way that you can take it at your own pace. You can watch one video per week and implement 30 minutes per day. You will have lifetime access to this course so that you can work at your own schedule.

What if I am not a designer yet?

Not all textile designers can draw :) You can create beautiful abstract and geometric designs with no drawing skills involved. In my class, I teach how to draw your pattern elements. I teach you step-by-step basic skills first and slowly take you to more advanced skills. If you can't draw, I give you recommendations on how to use basic shapes and elements such as circles and stars while you get comfortable with the system. Later you can work on your artistic skills if you want.

Can I learn this somewhere else? Can I take a local class?

This is my own unique system that I didn't learn anywhere else. I created it myself with the help of my software-developer husband, so you can't find it anywhere else.

"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
