Print & Pattern for Licensing: Creating Successful Collections

 
 

This course is a guide to creating a beautiful and saleable collection for your art licensing portfolio with examples, insider info and a ton of resources to help you along the way.

We’re going to start with some basic information about art licensing before going step-by-step into how to research and conceive of a strong collection idea and then bring it to life. Throughout the process, I’ll share all the tricks and resources I’ve used in order to jumpstart my licensing career.

I love how well researched [Elizabeth’s courses] are. They’re to the point, cover the business aspects and the critique of a collection info has been particularly useful for me. Really in-depth and a great value for my money

Loved this course! Elizabeth was very concise and the info she shared was one of the most valuable I’ve seen in a long time. She opened my eyes to a whole new world, basically!

I heard back from the first textile design studio I contacted today!! They said they loved my work and they told me they thought I would be a great fit with their team! I never would have discovered this whole other world of surface design if it weren’t for Elizabeth’s class. It was so informative and beyond helpful!

I loved Elizabeth’s Atly class and was signed to a print studio a few weeks after taking it! Thanks for the valuable insight.

Who should take this course?

  • Artists/Designers who have at least 5-10 designs in their portfolio- I recommend 10, but I give some pointers on what type of designs to add to your portfolio if you are a bit short on work.
  • Artists/Designers who are interested in designing for products and textiles. This course mainly focuses on pattern design, but studios do in fact need artists who can illustrate stand alone graphics.
  • Artists who work in traditional or digital media
  • Artists who are just starting and have 0-5 clients
  • Experienced artists/designers who need additional income and haven’t yet considered Textile Design Studios
