Software & Organizing
Drop Box - oh how I LOVE thee! I keep everything synced and backed up between all of my computers with Drop Box. This simple desktop app takes care of everything and I never have to worry, my files are always where I need them! Sign up and try it for free!
Adobe Creative Cloud - I can't even begin to tell you how much I love Adobe Creative Cloud. I've been using Adobe products since 2003 and I do love their products the annual updates had become a very expensive headache. Creative Cloud takes care of that! A monthly subscription to all the newest and greatest software!
Design Garden - My very first online course was the Design Garden Fundamentals class. It gave me the foundation to create great art and also taught me the techniques for getting hand drawn art on the computer and stylize it in illustrator. Highly recommend for anyone, especially those just starting out.
Design Life Project - A year ago I felt like my business was running and to some extent ruining my life. I found the Design Life Project a great tool in teaching me how to put permitters in place that actually cultivated more time and energy in my life for the things that truly mattered. I encourage everyone to take this course taught by Cathy!
Skill Share - This is one of theses places you can learn a ton at a very affordable price. Whenever I have something I want to learn or a slight interest in a new technique I always check Skill Share first. Added bonus, the class is yours forever!
Nicole's Classes - Last year I literally took every single Illustrator class. I felt this was something I had to do to gain a further understanding of the program. I am thankful that I did and really appreciate Alma's attention to teaching shortcuts and practical use of the program!
Make Art That Sells - Lilla's class is a great place to grow and learn the different markets! If you are interested in selling art or just want to become a better artist I highly recommend it!
ABSPD - These courses cover everything under the sun related to surface pattern design. If this is a market you are interested in you can't go wrong with these courses. They cover everything from the beginner to advanced!
SquareSpace - After years of running a self hosted Wordpress blog I decided had to make a change. In my effort to simplify I needed to make my life easier with a great store option and blog in one, SquareSpace was the answer!
