Today we have the final part in our 3-part showcase of the gorgeous work from our very talented Module 3 students of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design who took the course in January 2015. Hope you’ve enjoyed this fantastic selection of students work created over the 5 weeks in class!
“Module 3 has contained a wealth of useful industry specific information that is normally difficult to find and the access to WGSN is a wonderful addition. I now feel that I’m well on my way to developing my signature style and look forward to monetising my designs” – Kerren Cooper | Website
“The course has given me the confidence and skills to become a professional designer. The classes that gave me butterflies with excitement were Manufacturing and Selling, telling me exactly what I needed and wanted to know – how to get my designs out into the world and onto products! The clear step by step guide, how to create a business plan, was fantastic and having Rachael share her own business goals provided a wonderful, personal touch.” – Emma Cochrane | Website
“This course was jam-packed with insider info. I am still going through it all now.”– Lisa Jane Dhar | Website
“Most powerful element of the course: The Facebook group was an invaluable resource for me. It was extremely helpful as well as inspiring to see the work and read the questions and comments of my fellow students”– Lisa Travis | Website
“The most powerful element of the course was the reminder that doing what makes you happy, step by step will get you where you want to be. This helped me develop as a designer to let go, get out there and show my art more, and always think BIG but remember that breaking it down into baby steps will get you there” – Lara Georgine Nedeltscheff| Website
“The M3 course has helped me as a designer through providing a diverse high quality curriculum on becoming a ‘real’ surface pattern designer. The creative aspects of the course are underpinned with an extensive, relevant and in-depth body of resources sharing real world experience and has led me a little closer to my dream” – Tanya Paget| Website
“I really enjoyed the many aspects of freelancing and manufacturing that were provided in ABSPD Module 3. Thank you for opening my eyes to the possibilities of how my designs could be used!” – Belinda Sigstad | Website
“Thank you for this course full of valuable information and encouragement” – Anne Bomio
“There has been a huge amount of really helpful information in this course, which I will be referring back to for years to come. After Module 3 I now have a plan both of where I want to go, and for how I’m going to get there, which I think is the best way to get going” – Charlotte Brown | Website
“The course has given me so much information and the confidence to get my designs out into the world and feel positive about the future”– Ginette Guiver| Website
“I loved how module 3 was so hands on business wise and I also really enjoyed learning about the different revenue streams accessible to us. I feel ready to venture out into the big wide world of surface pattern design” – Micala Duvoux| Website
“Wow! I can’t believe I’ve finished all 3 modules and have learnt such a phenomenal amount in just one year. This is such an amazing opportunity for those who have neither the time nor money to go back to full time education but have a burning desire to learn the business of beautiful patterns. Thank you so much!” – Amanda Prouten | Website
