Start the course by meeting Ana, who tells you about her personal and professional career, her creative approach, and her work process. She tells you about her influences and artists she admires.

Get acquainted with the world of branding, looking at the importance of having a comprehensive communication plan. Learn to identify a differentiating factor and the essence of the brand, then follow practical steps to build the foundations for your final project.

Discover how Ana approaches the creation process of a collection of printed products: from the inspiration phase, a visual mood board, choice of themes, and devising a concept. Ana gives you tips to get started in this early stage of your project. Once you have your concept, start thinking about the products you want to apply your prints to.

Learn more about color, exploring the theoretical foundations and Ana's vision. Next, build your color palette. Now start creating your prints and learn how to combine them in a collection.

Ana teaches you how to use her favorite illustration techniques, showing you the advantages and possibilities when, for example, mixing them to get unique results. She then explains the basics of illustrating flowers and leaves using watercolors, acrylics, and nibs or fine-liners.

Learn what a rapport or printing module is and how it is used in textiles. Illustrate individual elements with pen and watercolors to create small personal image banks. See the step-by-step process for illustrating with acrylics.

Ana teaches you how to scan the elements, digitally adjust the color, clean them, edit them, and prepare them to put together your composition. Compose several patterns, making use of your color palette, your illustrations, concept, and everything you have learned so far. See how to apply it to your three products, opening up the spectrum of materials on which you can print.

Learn to apply your prints on digital products in a mock-up—a great solution to avoid spending money and be able to share your work on social media. Finally, get some advice on networks, strategy, communication, and interaction that you can apply to your projects.

What is this course's project?

Create three prints to apply to a capsule collection of products for a traveler: a backpack, a raincoat, and a cosmetics bag/pencil case.
