Patternbank are excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Make It In Design. Our Spring/Summer 2017 trends are being used to fuel the Make It In Design’s creative briefs within the Summer pattern course. The Summer School is a great online course to build and elevate your print & pattern skills if you are new to the industry or just need a creative lift over the Summer season.

Summer School is an exciting global online design event that gives you experience working to trend-inspired briefs, helps build your portfolio, connect with other designers and gives you the opportunity to get your work published!  The online summer course is fuelled by Patternbank’s recent Spring/Summer Print Trend report – so loads of trend analysis and inspirational themes to work your designs into. Find out more info on signing up to their summer courses here. Also check out the ‘Make it in Design’ Patternbank interview on their blog.
