We are such fans of surface pattern designer and Adobe Illustrator expert Bonnie Christine, everything she puts out works so flawlessly with the brand she has built (an excellent example of cohesive branding). If you are a creative, doing illustration, lettering etc. and are wondering what outlets there may be to build your work into something more Bonnie is a great starting point! Bonnie has a monthly membership based site called The Roost Tribe, it is a community of creatives but even better it is an immensely jam packed resource. Bonnie is truly a resource powerhouse, her classes on Skillshare are among the most popular on their site (from experience this is an incredibly difficult task to accomplish), she has years now of experience creating successful textile collections and she is happy to share her endless knowledge. We thought we would share some of the monthly topics she tackles in her Roost Tribe (link below for detailed next 6 months)–
May– Getting started with an industry (fabric, wallpaper,stationery). Video tutorial on creating mock-ups.
June-Marketing 10. Bonnie shares the marketing strategies she uses (she’s everywhere so I think she’s figured this topic out),
July-Leverage your handwriting (I think a lot of you could get behind this!)
August-Getting noticed and charging for your work
We have teamed up with Bonnie to giveaway one full year of a Roost Tribe membership! A $149 USD value, we are positive that if you participate in the tribe you should walk away with a ton more knowledge and inspiration and we hope a new flourishing career! So if you are ready to change your life and take your illustrations or lettering to another level then enter to win by:
