The Ultimate Portfolio Builder is an advanced seven-week online professional surface pattern design course, consisting of an intense five-week class followed by two weeks of design reviews.
This powerful course will give you all the tools and advice you need to grow your body of commercially viable work, refine and strengthen your professional design portfolio and give you the fast-track to trade show success.
Brought to you in association with Printsource, one of the top surface and textile design shows in the world, this course will provide you with exclusive insight to help you secure the right buyers for your work, deal effectively with clients, get trade show ready and discover the secrets to landing your dream work.
As part of this advanced course one lucky person on the UPB5 course will win a free booth at Printsource New York, August 2017 and $1,000 towards the cost of travel to the show. You can see our previous winner Stephanie Davies speak about her experience at the show this summer here.
Our most recent class of The Ultimate Portfolio Builder had an incredible four-part creative brief from Printsource designed to help them attract the clients they dream of working with.
