Monetising your designs‘ (Module 3) is a five week online course where you will learn everything you need to know to monetise your designs! The classroom is accessible 24/7 so you can join us from anywhere in the world, and fit the course into your busy life. The course includes freelancing, licensing, selling outright, manufacturing and more! Module 3 includes free access to leading trend forecasting site WGSN, live briefs from real companies and our little black book of industry contacts!

It includes the following:

  • How to identify multiple streams of income for your designs
  • How to sell and license your designs (what they don’t teach you at art school)
  • The ins and outs of freelancing
  • How to get into manufacturing your own product
  • How to choose the right distribution channel for you
  • How to negotiate a contract that is right for you
  • How not to get ripped off
  • How to manage your time and money
  • How to manage stock levels
  • How to get a job in design
  • How to stay motivated


  • How to create a pattern portfolio to show to potential clients
  • How to apply patterns to mock up product templates and room sets
  • How to turn a placement print into a technical repeat for wallpaper or fabric
  • How to design a Trade Show Brochure in Adobe Illustrator
  • Invaluable industry info such as colour print specifications for both paper goods & textiles

You will do this by actually creating a mini portfolio for potential licensing clients, a trade show plan and a business development plan.

PLUS you will learn everything you need to know about trade shows (getting in, getting ready, getting customers)

AND our money-can’t-buy bonus little black book of industry contacts!

And if that wasn’t enough, you also get full access to leading trend forecasting site WGSN for 90 days (this alone is worth more than the entire cost of the course!)
