Geometric Florals - Trying something new.

An intensive 10-week portfolio building workshop, designed to help designers to expand their portfolio with outstanding, fun and commercial designs that Art Directors and Licensees simply can’t get enough of. Complete with trend insights, professional advice, and incentives.

I love being self employed and going with the creative direction that inspires me, but from time to time I have designers block. My good friend Kate at Marmalademoon made me aware of a portfolio building course called Folio Focus. I thought it would be a brilliant idea to keep me on track. 

I decided to join in the fun and for the next 10 weeks I have a new topic each week to inspire me to create beautiful new work that is interesting and on trend. The first week combined fancy florals with geometric designs. The class provides multiple sources of inspiration including colour ideas, pinterest boards and trend related images.

 I've created a set of designs that are available to download at creativemarket and thehungrjpeg. I'll do a review of the 10 week portfolio building workshop once I am finished but so far so good. I am really enjoying it.
