Our acclaimed online courses have helped establish the careers of many new and exciting designers. Students have gone on to launch their own design studios and product lines, win national awards, be featured in design books and on leading blogs and signed for exciting licensing deals. We invite you to join us on stand A6 (first floor near to the cafe) at New Designers (Part 1) to find out about all the free resources and unique opportunities available to students to help provide a solid foundation for a successful career as a surface pattern designer.

In addition find out about Summer School 2018- a fantastic opportunity for art & design students to stretch themselves as designers, experience working to 2019 trend-inspired briefs, grow their portfolio, connect with other designers around the world, win prizes and get their work published.   We will also have lots of fun and creative giveaways for visitors to get involved in.   PLUS on Thursday June 28, we will be hosting a program of talks in collaboration with The Design Trust for their hugely successful and informative Start Up Day.
