I have instagrammed a few pics of my work in this challenge so far (tagging you and hashtagging creative live) I hope I am doing the correct steps to “enter” the surface pattern design contest and document my steps so far ?? Thank you for sharing what you know with us – you are a good soul!

  • I just signed up for Roost Tribe after RSVPing the class and seeing part of the course at Creativelive. I didn’t get to see all of it, but what I saw was great. It was so informative for all designers.
    Is it required to use Illustrator for the contest? It looks like the best program, but I really don’t have time to learn it in that short of time. I use a couple of other programs for designs at Spoonflower.
