Examples of 3 pages from our up to 10-page creative design briefs


You will be able to tackle the briefs either on the computer or off the computer for the beginner track, however the intermediate creative briefs will be aimed at software users but our briefs are very open to interpretation.

The difference in Summer Design School tracks is that the briefs ask different things from our students dependent on their level of creative skill:

  • The Beginner Track asks you to create a simple pattern or print (on or off the computer, software not required)
  • The Intermediate tracks asks for a more complex pattern with this applied to a mock-up that is provided (intermediate software knowledge required)
  • The Advanced Tracks ask for a repeat pattern or collection of patterns applied to mock-ups that are provided (advanced software knowledge required)

The different tracks also work on different trends and therefore the briefs are tailored to the different trends. If you want to get access to all of the trends then check out our bundle for all three tracks!

All tracks run at the same time so that our wonderful community can interact with one another in our private Facebook community for the duration of the event.

Please note Summer Design School does not include any technical guidance and can be completed with any software you have available.
