Let’s Get “Back to School!” & Why I joined Patreon

Hi, it's me, Svenja! Now that summer is over, I'm ready to get back to school-drawing and design school, that is. While not a formal online course, I'm here to provide lessons and advice to help you start your creative journey, or improve on your skills if you're already established as an illustrator and/or graphic designer.

I joined Patreon because I think it is a really great way for me to help small businesses who need tips and tricks to keep their visuals fresh and exciting, especially if they do not have a big budget. If you become a patron, here is what I promise to deliver:

  • Exclusive branding tips and tricks for patrons only

  • Depending on your selected tier, I also provide one-on-one branding guidance for your item of choice (website, brochure, logo, etc.)

  • I openly share my process to help other illustrators and graphic designers who want to start a creative venture

  • I also share examples of my submitted documentations for class projects, so my patrons can see firsthand how these projects are assembled

Patreon gives me the opportunity to share my experience with a small number of selected people who enjoy drawing and design as much as I do. It’s kind of like that small student to teacher ratio your parents always wanted for you in school! With your help, through Patreon I hope to create an online community of illustrators and graphic designers where we can get to know each other and share ideas about upcoming projects, building your portfolio, collaborations and more. I have so many wonderful things to share with you, and I know I will learn from you as well.
