If you love to paint on your iPad, expand your creative knowledge, and eventually sell your artwork as digital products, the Safari Lounge Designer Classes are
just right for you!

Even if you have little or no experience with digital painting and just want to learn more about it, find your own style and share your creativity with like-minded people, the Safari Lounge is your place to be.
And maybe you want to sell your artwork someday: Then I can also help you with that!

It's time to find a balance to your everyday life and new inspiration for a new passion!

What if you could find everything you need in one place, everything which helps you to relax and create a piece of art that you might even be able to sell?
What if you had someone along the way who would help you to overcome any obstacles you have to face? And, finally,  shows you how to find your own style?

Everyday life can be stressful. And sometimes we get the feeling that we only have obligations from morning to night and that we are running after our self-imposed daily goals. Often there is simply no time left to relax and switch off. Rather, we fall into bed in the evening, dead tired, only to be fit enough again the next morning to cope with another day. In addition, there are the self-doubts coming up that tell us that we have to submit to this fate.
When these feelings and doubts come up - wouldn't it be nice to have a place where you could just take an hour off from everyday life, without having to travel far? How about just grabbing your iPad and doing a little painting, at your own pace and without any pressure, with the help of small, understandable and easy-to-follow classes?

Do you still hesitate? I totally understand - maybe you think that you "can't paint well enough" or that you are not "talented enough" and then, of course, you don't want to show others your works right away. Of course, that's not a problem either here.
In the Safari Lounge you can participate in classes you enjoy and find projects that always pick you up where you are and invite you to participate, without having to show your result to anyone. Rather, the projects are meant to inspire you and bring you a little closer to your goal wether it's enjoying to create or finding your style!
And maybe they'll help you to create your own digital products, so you can build your own little business if you want to.
If you just want to get away from it all, switch off and just be creative, you're welcome here too, of course!

The Safari Lounge has no opening hours. Here you can always enjoy a little peace from everyday life and discover new creative projects at any time, day (and night) or just drop by in between.
As your teacher I am of course always here to help you with questions and problems. So you can master every project with flying colors and, while you relax, continue to develop your skills in painting and drawing.
But the Safari Lounge offers you even more. When you feel confident using the Apple pencil and programs on your iPad, you can learn how to sell your artwork.
Wouldn't it be nice if you could not only create gifts from your art, but also make sure that people all over the world enjoy it?
Then you've come to the right place!
I'll also show you how to turn your artwork into digital products and make money from it - hands off!

The Safari Lounge Designer Classes

Learn how to find some peace in your everyday life through your creativity
and perhaps turn your new knowledge into a profitable business.

At Safari Lounge, each course belongs to one of three stages: Sprout (painting), Grow (creating), or Bloom (selling), so you can immediately see what the course requires, what to expect, and in which area the course will help you. Whether you want to create your own cards or stickers or make your own murals this is totally up to you. There is something for anyone in the Safari Lounge. Get inspired again and again with new projects that give you a break from the daily grind. Use your results to create your first digital products.
And finally, sell your own digital products in your online store.
No matter which path you take, the Safari Lounge will help you forget the daily grind for a few hours and immerse yourself in a new world with like-minded people while creating beautiful decorative items for your home or your own products for sale!

Here’s What You’ll Get When You Sign Up

You get various short but also longer self-paced courses in which we always tackle a project that you can implement on your iPad, computer or with paper and pencil.
You'll pick a project that you enjoy over the next few days - or weeks - and work on it with the materials you like.
Each class will help you bring you a little closer to your goal - no matter what it is. Maybe you'll paint some flowers in watercolor, then create beautiful patterns from them and have fabrics printed. You can use those fabrics to sew clothes for your kids or sell it. Or maybe you paint your own greeting cards on your iPad and have them printed for your loved ones or sell them on Etsy. Of course, you can also create beautiful graphic sets, patterns, cards, fabrics or posters and sell them as digital products at the big stores such as DesignCuts and CreativeMarket.
Once you sign up, you'll have instant access to all the materials, videos and downloads, and of course to me, who is always just an email away. If you have the Safari Lounge "Premium Package" we will find out your goals in our coaching sessions and I help you along the way to reach them.
In our coaching sessions, I'll answer all your questions and work with you on the next steps you need to take to reach your goal.
This online course is like your own personal art school with a private teacher to help you on your way including all the materials you need to succeed in your studies and become a great artist or designer.

Video Tutorials

Each session is jam-packed with great and engaging video lessons which invite you to follow along.


Additional Material

Just like at school you'll get material and exercises whenever necessary. You can download the PDFs to your computer or your tablet to print them and create your own learning guide! You can send me your exercises so we can talk about your results. No worries, we are not grading your exercises, this is just for you to learn and understand.

Graphics & Templates

Each project session has the material you need to get the project done as well as additional graphics so you can create your own products from the new knowledge you gained. You'll also find templates, color palettes, brushes and much more to create your own products for sale.

Support

I'm always just an email away. Use the contact form on the website (which is in every corner on the top right) or send an email with your questions or projects to info (at) digidesignresort.com. Usually I answer your email in no more than 24 - 48 hours on business days but please keep in mind that I'm in Germany and I might be in a different time zone or might have a holiday or anything which is different from your country.


Here’s what others are saying about the Classes

This course exists since 2009 and has developed over the years. What I've always had were fans who gave me some great feedback. Here is what the arising designers said:

Ben from Benthaicreations

Designer from France

I’ve always dreamed about learning skills, great skills from experimented people, and here at the DigiDesign Resort Safari  Lounge you get knowledge from designers who share their own practice teaching you how to get the best from your software . You watch the video really clear as a step-by-step easy to follow and understand : I am not an english native speaker and I can follow each tutorial very easily!

What is really great is that you can learn everytime you have free time and go back to the video whenever you want! After you think you are ready, you can practice and do your homework…really cool!

Papierstudio Silke

Designer from Brasil

The perfect Place to 
increase your Knowledge!

The Safari Lounge is the perfect place to increase your knowledge about designing. I’m usually a person who loves to learn by myself, but when I watched the videos and the tips around scrapbooking here at DDR, I discover that many times I used the looooong way to get a specific result!  

 Sue from Downunder Scraps

Designer from Australia

If I miss something 
I can easily go back

Hi my name is Sue (aka DownUnderScraps), for those who would like to know what I think of the new Safari Lounde Classes for learning designing, here it is… I am so glad I joined because I am learning heaps of new stuff and also enjoying the classes. The videos are also great because they really explain things and if you miss something you can restart or pause them when and as often as you need so you can follow the instructions. I am enjoying learning how to use Gimp as I have only used Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.
I am also very appreciative of ALL the help and support I have been receiving from Monja, thank you so much for this new adventure and for all your help 🙂 

Pam

Designer from South Africa

I'm now a Designer and loving it!

I fell in love with Digital Scrapbooking as soon as I found it on the web.  From then on I wanted to be a Designer and make beautiful kits like the ones I saw in Digidesignresort.  The problem was, where  to begin?  How do you make those beautiful papers and elements?  What do you have to do to become a designer?  I joined the Safari Lounge and found all the answers there.  It was brilliant, everything I needed to know was there.  From how to find free programmes and setting up your CT team to how to make those beautiful papers and elements and everything in between.  I am now a Designer and loving it. Thank you Monja

What's inside the Safari Lounge Designer Classes

The Safari Lounge Designer Classes consist of many different online courses, each course belongs to either the Sprout, Grow or Bloom section, so you can always learn what you are interested in. Of course, you'll always find recommendations on what to do next in the courses.

Sprout

As a "Sprout" you will find all creative courses helpful. At this stage  I'll show you how to paint your first flowers and landscapes with watercolor, conjure up beautiful pictures in Procreate on your iPad or do some hand lettering.
You are welcome to stay a "Sprout" "forever".
If you want to relax from everyday life and just be creative, you are invited to swing the brush with me, to talk me and other creatives and to always face new challenges.

Grow

Of course, a picture can remain a picture: You can collect it in an art folder or hang it up at home, just as you like. But if you want to belong to the "grow" section, you must learn how to make something out of your art. Here we'll turn your painted flowers into a real sticker that you can use on your water bottle. Or you turn your hand lettering into a t-shirt. Of course, I'll  show you how this works and we'll turn your art into real products.

Bloom

If nothing can stop you, you are a "Bloomer"! Why shouldn't others like your stickers for their water bottle? Why should only you wear your beautiful T-shirt? Exactly, there is no reason for that and as a Bloomer you are well on your way to creating your own art business and I will show you step-by-step how you can achieve that.

Bonus

Here are the Add Ons you'll love!

Wait! There is more!
I believe in community over competition so I want to teach and give you whatever I can to make your new adventure a success. So here you go. Many lessons inside the Safari Lounge Designer Classes have exercises which should help to tighten what you've learned. Beside that you can send them to me and we can talk about your results - constructive criticism helps to grow. As a member of the  Safari Lounge  I'll be there for you whenever you need me.

Bonus 1
1 to 1 Coaching

With this class you do not just get all the training you need to become a happy artist or a successful digital graphic designer. You'll also get direct access to me. When you book the Safari Lounge "Comfort" you can send me an email and I'll answer it in no time. If you have the "Safari Lounge "Premium" membership we'll have a planning session once you've joined and plan out your goals, no matter if you belong to the sprout, grow or bloom section, so I can be there for you along the way.

Bonus 2
Material

In the Safari Lounge Designer Classes you have access to all the materials you need to master the exercises and create your own designs. You'll find textures, patterns, Procreate Brushes, color palettes,  workbooks and much more!





About Your Safari Lounge Teacher, Monja

If we just meet my name is Monja and I'm owner of Digidesignresort since 2008. When I first started I just wanted to be the "Admin of a big Website" - just like the guys from Two Peas in a Bucket those days. And that's what I became.
I love Photography, it was my main subject at University, and that's why I stumbled over scrapbooking and was hooked! Until today I still love to tell my story with pictures but also with a pencil - or on my computer.
Personally, I'm a huge fan of hybrid scrapbooking because it allows me to print out the scrapbook papers and embellishments I create when I need them - this is eco-friendly and I don't need to store so much material everywhere in my home. 

Digidesignresort grew into a huge website and there were times when we had 40+ Designers on the site, a huge creative team, their manager, a great and active forum and many lovely people and friends. There we sold digital scrapbooking kits.
So over the years I have learned a lot about which Scrapbooking Kits (or graphic sets in general) sell and which not. I know what quality designs are and what not. Since 2009 I support new and promising designers to create their own digital products to sell them. And I know how to set up an online business and all this and more is what you can learn in this class.
We will just no longer specialize in digital scrapbooking kits but you can, of course, still create them as a digital product. This is just one of many digital products you can create and sell as a graphic designer or illustrator.
During the class you'll learn what good design is, you know the tools you need to create a product and you'll have your own portfolio as well as your first fans and hopefully sales - if you want to. 
You'll see - we have a lot to do in the Safari Lounge Designer Classes. 
I'm really happy to meet you!

Have you ever wanted to turn your Life upside down?
Now is the right time...

The Safari Lounge Designer Classes first launched in August 2009. We started with a subscription on a forum and grew quickly from there to a scrapper and designer community. During those days there were not a lot of membership sites and I had to face many problems. We needed a place which could handle all the videos and files we provided. Not an easy task as online videos were not omnipresent those days! The Internet wasn't as fast and stable as it is today!
The years I can look back on now mean on the one hand that I can help you as an aspiring designers with all my experience as well as all the resources I have.

The good thing is: All the worksheets, resources and experience are now combined at one place, inside the Safari Lounge Designer Classes. You do not only get a lot of video tutorials and PDFs but also resources you need to create your first products. 

The Safari Lounge Designer Classes are an all in one solution. You do not only have access to all the video tutorials and materials (and there updates!) as long as you are a member but also to me. I'll be here to help you to overcome all obstacles on your way becoming a great artist or graphic designer - whenever you need me.

Because of this the class will help you to turn your life upside down. If you watch the tutorials, work through the worksheets and talk about your obstacles there is nothing which could hold you back becoming a great artist and/or successful digital graphic designer!

Of course this won't work without your commitment  but it's well worth it!


So here is what you get:

Here a summary with everything you can expect from the Safari Lounge Designer Classes:

  • In depth online classes in drawing + painting, creating (design) and business (
  • Unlimited 1:1 Email Coaching (Safari Lounge Comfort + Premium)
  • PDFs, Materials (from Brushes to Color Palettes and more!) & Worksheets you need (Safari Lounge Comfort + Premium)
  • 1:1 Coaching 4 Sessions, each 45 minutes/year (Safari Lounge Premium)

In your Safari Lounge Designer Classes you don't have to be somewhere at a specific time. You can watch the lessons at your own pace, repeat them if you want to and ask me whenever you stumble over an obstacle.

100% Satisfaction
Guarantee

Absolutely, hassle free cancellation!

If you feel that the class does not fit your needs or cannot help you properly it's all on me. I want you to be happy so you can try out the Safari Lounge for 7 Days for free. Test the Safari Lounge Designer Classes and if you are not happy cancel at any time from your member's area. Sometimes things might not fit and that's ok! So when you feel that this class cannot help you to become a great digital graphic designer it's just fair that you don't have to pay anything. You are charged for the first time after the 7 days trial period. 

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the Course start and finish?

The course starts now and never ends! The Safari Lounge Designer Classes is a self-paced course that takes place online - you decide when you start and when the course ends for you. You can cancel your membership at any time in the member's area. Then you will lose access to all videos and teaching materials at the end of your contract period (i.e. after the enrollment has ended). You should download the materials and save them to your computer (as I exchange them from time to time).

What happens if I'm unhappy with the Course?

I want you to be absolutely satisfied with the course! You have seven days from the registration date to test the Safari Lounge. If you do not like the course, you can easily cancel your membership before the end of the seven days - without answering any annoying questions.

How do I get my Coaching? 

No matter where you are at Digidesignresort.com, there is always a contact button in the upper right corner. If you send me an email, I'll be there for you. I will reply to your email in a maximum of two working days. But please note: I'm in Germany and therefore I might be in a different time zone than you are. So I might sleep while you send me an email.
Coaching Sessions: We will arrange our appointments for live coaching (via Skype or Zoom) directly after you have decided on the annual subscription. I will contact you and we will arrange a an appointment for our initial consultation so that I can learn more about your goals.

How long do I have access to the Course?

You have access to all materials, videos and bonuses of the course as long as you are enrolled as a member. If I ever close the site while you are still a member, you will receive an email from me early enough telling you that you should download all the materials you want to keep.

What can I do with the Commercial Use Material?

You'll have a commercial license for all materials included in the Safari Lounge. You can therefore do whatever you want with them - except resell them as they are. That's a very simple license, isn't it?
The materials were created by me for all participants of the Safari Lounge Designer Classes and I want you to be creative with them but still create something of your own from them before you sell them as your own product.

From my Desk to yours

This course is a work of love. Being an artist, graphic designer and teacher my entire life (at least that's how it feels!) and being owner of Digidesignresort since 2008 I could collect the one or other experience selling digital products or more precise digital graphic sets online. And in this course I have put everything I know, every little detail and there is more I add because being a full-time graphic designer there are more things I learn every day. And I'll share them with you, I promise. So you'll always be up to date.

I'm happy to go this path with you!
