LAUNCH of Faber Co website
 
 

I’ve always been a bit of a tech nerd. I really enjoy diving into technical issues and trying to find the best solution to solve them - as well as to learn everything about it. With Faber Co I get to nourish my inner nerd and Adrian his artistic soul - as we explore the world of creating digital design assets together.  Faber Co is where we combine our technical skills with our knowledge and experience in design and art to create carefully selected, high quality design assets to be used in your artwork. Read more about us here >>

We started Faber Co as a way of creating together. I’ve been interested in design assets myself since I first started to learn about graphic design and have both bought and created products for myself during the years - and we are both completely mesmerised by using the iPad as a design tool and to draw in the brilliant app Procreate.

We started a shop at Creative Market a few months ago. It’s such a great marketplace for design assets, but we also wanted to have a place that is ours where we could gather everything in one place - tutorials, brush demos, our web shop and to have a closer connection with our customers. This is why we have launched a Faber Co website www.faberdesign.co and an Instagram account @faberdesign.co.

Our new website is a place where you can learn more about Procreate and see our products be used in action. We want it to be a hub for creativity and learning, with the focus on our favourite design tool - the iPad.

Learn how to design a pattern collection
 
 

I've published my 6th class on Skillshare! Learn how to design a pattern collection and streamline your workflow, using Adobe Draw and Illustrator in this new fully packed class. 

You will learn how to decide a theme and plan your collection, what a collection should include and the workflow of drawing your motives and build your collection. The class covers color choices, how to name the patterns, save the files and finally make some mockups to showcase your new collection.

It can be quite tricky to make pattern collections and it might feel like a large project to start with. But once you get a hang of it, making collections is so much fun and it's so rewarding to create a whole collection of coordinating patterns that mix and match beautifully together. 

In this class I will teach you the process that I uses when I create collections and hopefully you can use this to streamline your workflow and simplify your process when creating collections.

I've just published my new class where you'll learn everything that I know about colors in pattern design and I’m very happy to announce a special giveaway that me and my fellow pattern designer Kristina Hultkrantz are hosting together in connection with the launch of our newest classes on Skillshare.

To celebrate that we are both releasing our debut fabric collections with Paintbrush Studio Fabrics we have gotten together to host this joint giveaway. In this special giveaway, 2 winners shall be chosen to win a bundle of fabrics from both our fabric collections. The bundle includes a total of ten fat quarters from our collections - five from each. In addition to winning the fabric bundles you will also win a personal review from one of us on your class project. In Kristina's class this means a review from her of your collection and in my class this means a review of your colorways. The review will be written personally to you in an e-mail and you can even include any questions that you have for us and we will answer them personally for you.
