I just completed the third pattern design class at the Art and Business of Surface Design with Rachel Taylor and Beth Kempton. This module is Monetizing Your Designs. We’ve been learning about freelancing, licensing, and manufacturing. Lots of GREAT information and I highly recommend all three modules.
As part of the this module we got access to WGSN, trend forecasting services. The website is packed with tons of information such as image libraries, design libraries, clip art, forecasting, color tools, image library, design tools, market intelligence, and MORE! I highly recommend check it out.
Here is a sneak peak at the spring/summer 2016 colors.
I like them muted and soft. I’ll have to put together a pattern with these colors.
