This is for you if you are drawn to colour and pattern and dream of one day licensing your own designs but don’t know where to begin. It’s also ideal if you’ve been out of the design world for a while and need a refresh!

In Module 2Creating your professional identity‘ you will learn how to develop your brand image, design advanced technical repeats in Photoshop and Illustrator, put a collection together and start your own label. You will also discover how to understand and predict trends, get noticed and attract the press, and protect your work.

This is for you if you have a basic understanding of surface pattern design and now want to get noticed and make a name for yourself. Here you’ll join a community of like-minded people on a fun and inspiring creative journey and learn how to create more complex repeat patterns, build them into a sellable collection and put the foundations in place to pave the way for licensing and other exciting ways of selling your work.
