“Along with the amazing amount of class content, I found Rachael’s personal stories to be one of the most valuable parts of this course. There is more to learning than just completing technical exercises and I feel the ABSPD course has the perfect blend of tutorials AND first hand experiences we can all learn from!” – Marsha Rollinger
We are really pleased to showcase the beautiful work from our very talented Module 2 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.
“The most helpful part of this class for me was the section on trends. It really helped me think about creating collections more in advance and incorporating my own take on upcoming trends.” – Jamie Chapin
“The most powerful element of the course for me has been the opportunity to learn and develop as a designer from home at my own pace, but with the interaction via social media with other students, who have been a great support and inspiration throughout the module. I also feel having the opportunity to consider and work to live briefs is a great way for me to learn to manage my time designing, put my new skills into practice and create some valuable work for my portfolio.” – Charlotte Burr
“Module 2 has been an extremely helpful experience which has brought me to a whole new level of confidence and skill as a designer. The feedback from the facebook community has been invaluable and I’ve looked forward to Rachael’s highly relevant and useful lessons every day of the course! ” – Petica Watson / Studio Bricolaged
“In addition to being an amazing creative inspiration, Module 2 of ABSPD has also been a blue print to focus my creativity in a way that will advance my career as a designer. Thank you Rachael, Beth and all of the ABSPD team!” – Anne Bollman
‘The course has given me the confidence and motivation to go for it, and fuel my passion for print and pattern. I’m excited to start the next module and gain further invaluable information to the design world!’ – Catherine Ann Lewis
“This course has helped me to discover my style and start to develop my design brand. It has pushed my creative boundaries and opened up a new world of beauty and joy.” – Tasha Goddard
“I had been searching for awhile for a course that would refine my existing artistic, design and graphics skills so I could propel myself into a career that would allow me to be creative, do what I love and be able to make a living. While the course has been invaluable in teaching me the ins and outs of the Surface Design Industry it has also given me the confidence to realise I can make it on my own.” – Seonaidh Murphy
