Learn with me on Skillshare

As a self-taught designer I know how much effort it takes to learn new skills on your own. In my Skillshare classes I share what I’ve learned so far, as well as new skills and tips & tricks that I pick up along the way, as I continue to build up my creative business.

I’m a bit of a technical nerd and I love to create easy to follow steps to make the complicated understandable, achievable and to feel simpler.

Fantastic class that takes you through the entire pattern making process from a Scandinavian point of view. Maja is a great teacher and her techniques will help propel you forward through the creative and technical process!

Thanks Maja, I love your style of teaching and have found your classes to be the most helpful as I begin my journey into surface pattern design. Developing an attractive and engaging colour palette has alway seemed like a daunting challenge but your video has given some great insight in how to approach this. I also really appreciate that you continue to share your workflow, especially using the iPad Pro and Adobe Draw to begin a concept then moving into illustrator. This is a method I also use but do not see too many teachers discuss or show this in detail with surface pattern design.
