WANT TO BE A SURFACE PATTERN DESIGNER? WE WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY...

The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design

If you have ever dreamt of seeing your designs on stationery, fabric, homewares or other products, sharing your art through pattern and monetising your designs, this groundbreaking course is for you!

‘The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design’ is the definitive guide to becoming a surface pattern designer. Thriving surface pattern designer Rachael Taylor will guide you along this exciting path from developing your signature style to putting a collection together, and from protecting your work to monetising your designs. With a rich combination of design inspiration, practical advice, demonstrations, creative exercises, resources and interviews with leading industry practitioners, this is the go-to guide for anyone wanting to develop their design skills and break into the industry. Our alumni have been signed by leading design brands, won national competitions, been featured in design books and on major design blogs, and launched their own design studios. You could be next! The online course can be accessed from anywhere in the world and it includes valuable insights from experts plus examples of creative work from a host of flourishing designers. The course is split into four modules to turbo charge your design journey:

Module

1

The Art and Busine ss of

Surface Pattern Design

Module 1: Designing your way Module 1 contains everything you need to know to turn basic sketches into elements for pattern design. You’ll learn about colour and pattern, how to create moodboards and work towards developing your signature style. Along the way, there’ll be lots of opportunities to pick up top tips and tricks from industry insiders.

Module

2

The Art and Busine ss of

Classes run throughout the year. The four modules of this course can be taken individually or together to kickstart or boost your surface pattern design career. Each module builds on the previous one and the course is open to everyone. 39

The Ultimate Portfolio Builder This is an advanced seven-week online professional surface pattern design course which consists of an intense five-week class followed by two weeks of design reviews. In this powerful course you’ll get all the help, advice and tools you need to grow your body of commercially viable work, refine and strengthen your professional design portfolio and fast-track yourself to trade show success.

“Creative trainers and colleges better watch out some could learn a lot from this course’s customer service, structure and balance between technical and practical exercises.” Module 1 graduate

“It’s a dream come true. I have delayed exploring Photoshop and Illustrator because classes often centred on working with photographs or material that was not of interest to me. Your class holds my hand while offering instruction specific to my interests and goals.” Module 2 graduate

“Wow! UPB is a learning journey that will help you discover yourself and smash creative barriers beyond your imagination. An intense but incredibly well supported and professional course that you will never forget. It has been life-changing.” - UPB graduate

“This is an intense, incredible and inspiring course. It has reignited my love for pattern making and if anyone were to ask me if it were worth the financial investment... it would be a massive YES from me.” - UPB graduate

“LOVED IT! The course has empowered me to start my own business and I’m excited about what the future holds.” Module 3 graduate
