Do you need help setting your goals for 2018? I’m here to help!
Tomorrow I am hosting a free goal setting chat for all TDL members. Please bring your questions, comments, stories, and community support to this live event that will be recorded.
The Storytelling challenge was inspired by one of our wonderful guest experts in the Lab, Maria Ogedengbe, and the idea of telling our family story, or the story of our community through motifs and patterns. This is a different route than our usual trend-driven challenges but I think it will be a nice fit for the month of December which tends to be a busy one with the holidays and travel (we are allotting five weeks for this challenge rather than the usual four.)
This concept of storytelling can be applied to any artistic style, layout style or trend that you wish, but we have included three inspiration ideas and color palettes in the full post.
Mark your calendars! Our popular Sellable Sketch Group-Study starts on January 8, 2018.
In this course you’ll bring clarity and focus to your collection development process and take the guesswork out of what to design each season by picking appropriate trends for your target market while staying true to your own artistic style.
You’ll also have free access to WGSN, the industry’s leading resource for trends and design direction.
Weekly Art Critique
Don’t forget to join us for our live art critique held THURSDAY at 1 PM Eastern. This is a fun event where Lab members come together to review artwork and ask questions about pattern design, marketing and sales. A registration link will be emailed out early on Thursday morning and a link can also be found in our Weekly Art Critique forum.
Textile Design Lab members can watch past critiques here.
