I’m happy to announce that I just published my new Skillshare class “Make your own handmade notebook - With your design on the cover”. This is such a fun and crafty class that is perfect for you who make your own patterns or illustrations and want to try them out on a real product. I usually make these notebooks myself as cute little homemade gifts for my friends and family. You can enroll in the class here: 

You actually don’t need to use your own design on the cover of the notebook to take this class, you can also download two of my patterns to use or you could just use ready-made patterned paper - if you just quickly want to learn how to make notebooks.

Today is the LAUNCH of a new adventure - Faber Co. As a creative couple with a passion for design, me and my fiancé, Adrian Faber, recently came up with the idea to start Faber Co. together.

We are so excited about this launch and are really happy to finally be able to release our first design assets!

We have opened our shop at Creative Market and have launched 2 products so far - both are high quality brushes for Procreate app (iPad Pro). More products will be released soon. Check it out at

Learn to animate a Christmas snow globe

Today I've launched my new Christmas special Skillshare class. It's a really fun, 21 minutes long class where you will learn how to illustrate and animate a Christmas snow globe. I will take you through a few easy to follow steps in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, that will make you go from no globe to snow globe, in no time :) 

You’ll find the class on Skillshare here:

AND if you don’t have a membership on Skillshare you will get 2 months of free membership when you sign up here.

I had so much fun creating this class and are feeling the holiday spirit already - I was actually singing Christmas songs and eating gingerbread cookies while I filmed and edited this class. Can you tell I absolutely LOVE Christmas?! 

If you know some friends who wants to take the class but aren't members on Skillshare I'm hosting a giveaway today at Instagram @majaronnbackdesign where 3 people will get 3 months of free access to all 3 classes that I've launched so far on Skillshare AND 10 people will get 1 month of free access to this new Christmas special class.

New course on Skillshare: Showcase your artwork - Make your own mockups

Today I’ve released my second class on Skillshare. This one is all about mockups! if you are an illustrator or pattern designer feel free to have a look at my new class. It's filled with tips, tricks and techniques on how to make your own mockups from free stock photos. And if you're not sure what mockups are and why you should use them - no worries I will go through everything you need to know about mockups in this class!

Mockups are a great tool to showcase your artwork. In this class you will learn how to create professional looking reusable mockups, using free stock photos in Adobe Photoshop. Maja will teach you different techniques to make your mockups look as realistic as possible, so that you in the end of the class will be able to make your own high quality mockups using any photo with the right basic conditions. 

The class is built up so that the techniques gets more advanced for each lesson and each technique is presented in easy to follow steps. 

You can use mockups on your website, in your look book, in social media AND mockups are a great way to make future clients visualize how your artwork would look on their products – which in the long run can be a deal breaker if you are trying to sell your artwork to clients.
