We are really pleased to showcase the beautiful work from our very talented Module 3 students of ‘The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design (the e-course) who took the course in November 2013. Here are some our fantastic students & the work they have created over the 5 weeks in class.
“Module 3 was packed with information, tips and know-how about the business. Making you believe that there is room for everybody in this business, and yes you can make it!” – Camilla Foss
“The course has been a fantastic source of knowledge for me; with great access to the working practices and business contacts. I have really appreciated working on the companies live briefs; to design for a variety of subject matters and products.” – Jessica Gray (Jessie G Designs)
“I’ve learned to really listen to myself and go with my instincts. I’ve learned to just go for it and have fun in the process” – Sara Franklin
“The most powerful element of this course has been learning about manufacturing and the overall business side of starting your own label. All 3 modules have helped to develop me as a designer and have inspired me to start my own business and get my label ‘Cloud Ashmi’ out into the world.” – Ashmi Shah
“The course has reached me how to push my brand forward and has given me so much other information how to bring my work out into the world. After years of designing for others it feels great to follow my own path.” – Petra Hofmann
“The most powerful part of the course for me was all the amazing information, the live briefs and the community that we were able to build through our facebook page. Having those contacts makes working from home a lot less lonely.” – Mimi Valias-Clark
“I would love to thank Rachael & Beth for the opportunity to take Module 3 of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design. Rachael is a wealth of information and very generous with her knowledge. I look forward to being able to revisit the information over and over again!” – Angela Kilpatrick
“The most powerful thing of module 3 was for me finding a direction in the design industry. Although my search is not finished yet I learned a great deal about the possibilities and the need of making choices.” – Jeannet Amende
“This course was brilliant as it helped make the business side of surface pattern design less scary! I’ve done 3 modules which have really develop my style and made my designs more sellable. The language used throughout the course is straight forward and everything is explained brilliantly. I would definitely recommend this course to any surface designer!” – Mhairi McDowall
