Dreams come true for Stephanie at Printsource: Part 1

Stephanie Davies

Rewind 12 months and Stephanie Davies was about to embark on a life-changing surface pattern design course – The Ultimate Portfolio Builder.

The Ultimate Portfolio Builder is our most advanced surface pattern design course delivered in association with Printsource New York. Creatives taking this fantastic module get the chance to submit work to a live brief set by Printsource New York where one lucky person wins a FREE booth at the show.

Stephanie joined us for The Ultimate Portfolio Builder in September 2015 after completing Modules 1 – 3 of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design.

She entered her designs to the Printsource live brief, won the competition and recently exhibited at Printsource New York! Her surface pattern career officially has lift-off!

We are thrilled to bring you a 3-part blog series about Stephanie’s experience of Printsource, her top tips for first timers thinking about exhibiting at a show and lots more besides!

We went out after the first day of the show and took Stephanie for a well deserved cocktail (or two!) at a local bar to celebrate her win and early success at the show!

A few days after we arrived back from New York, Stephanie sent us one of her own gorgeous thank you cards with the loveliest words inside which read:

I just wanted to say the biggest thank you for giving me one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I truly never dreamed that I would win such an amazing opportunity and see my business become a reality. I have everything to thank for the course from Make it in Design for making my dreams come true. Thanks so much for your support, encouragement and for being so kind and helpful.
