I found the UGTR course fantastic – definitely a must do for everyone who wants to master technical repeats. It gave me the skills to develop repeats with ease, from simple set layouts, to more complex free flow designs. I learned how to effectively translate my artworks into solid, balanced and interesting repeats and how to prepare them for printing accurately.
Mastering repeats is fundamental for the success of your print – making sure the repeat is balanced and doesn’t have any spacing issues or unintentional directionality is very important.
“Pattern design is not about a single motif but about the whole, the balance of the composition, and the UGTR will help you developing the right skills for the job.”
