We are thrilled to share with you the success of our ABSPD alumni Metka Hiti whose designs recently featured in Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine. This was a result of a live brief in our advanced seven week course The Ultimate Portfolio Builder which Metka took in May last year. Metka and another student, Tracy Miller had designs selected to appear in the magazine. Such fantastic news and an amazing opportunity for both our talented students.
Metka is a professor of mathematics who fell in love with surface pattern design and illustration and hopes to grow as a designer and sell her designs worldwide. Find out more about Metka in an interview we published last year here.
