This summer I took part in the Make it in Design Summer School, this was an amazing experience (and free!), we were set three briefs over 6 weeks and they all made me stretch my pattern-making muscles! The briefs focussed on current trends which was great for me as I tend to lean towards Nordic themed designs and forget there are so many other things I could be doing! As with the other courses I've done with MIID team the community support and feedback is really lovely, especially if you work alone in a small box like me! If you're thinking of doing one of their courses just do it! The only catch is all you will think about all day is patterns :)
Here are some of the new designs I came away with...
I'm really chuffed to have been featured in the issue no.6 of MOYO magazine! This is a great magazine dedicated to surface pattern design so I'm really proud to be a part of it alongside some pattern chums.
