FREE access to leading trend forecasting tools and insight from Stylesight with Module 3!



We are jumping up and down with excitement over here - Beth Nicholls and I have decided to take the plunge and invest a significant amount (many thousands of dollars) in providing our pattern students with free access to industry leading trend forecasting website Stylesight! As the industry leader, Stylesight offers "visionary content and compelling technology for style, fashion and design professionals". We met the team at the Indigo trade show in Paris back in February, and were blown away by what the site offers.



All students on Module 3 of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design will be offered free access to the site for a limited period of time.



This means that if you join us you will have full access to ALL the site's incredible resources including: The industry's largest image library where you can search more than 8 million zoom-able, hi-res images to find exactly what you need. Access the fastest runway images, comprehensive coverage of global retail, streets and events and more than 400 tradeshows. Forecasting and trend analysis from their 200+ person team bringing real time trend insight from across the world. Workflow tools to make the creative journey not only more inspirational but also more efficient and cost-effective Pattern design tutorials (in addition to those provided in the course itself) Amazing tools like 'My Storyboard'...
Drag and drop images directly from your Stylesight Workspace, the image library or your own desktop to create shareable presentations and trend boards. ... the 'Clip' tool...


Click on any image, anywhere on the web, and it instantly uploads to your Stylesight Workspace. Combine Stylesight's content, your content and web content to suit your creative needs and 'Colour play'...


Choose from the full Pantone, CSI, NCS and CNCS color libraries to build colour palettes. Use Stylesight’s expertly edited seasonal palettes – organized by trend and colour family – as a starting point. You can watch a video overview of Stylesight's offerings here.



This was a significant investment for us, but we truly believe in the possibilities this course offers our students, and know that this is going to give them a huge boost as they travel the path to becoming professional surface pattern designers. There is no other online course in the world offering this alongside the in depth industry insight and design guidance and inspiration offered in The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design. This access alone is worth many times the course price. Join us! Module 3 has just begun but we have extended M3 registration until midnight GMT on Saturday (April 21) for any latecomers to make sure as many of you as possible can take advantage of this amazing opportunity. You can squeeze in if you hurry and register here - take the leap and make this investment in your own design career! [All images in this post courtesy of Stylesight]
