More about this course

In this class, learn how to properly display your surface pattern design or textile design portfolio. A pattern portfolio includes 4 major components:

  1.  To be designed in collections
  2.  To include mock ups
  3.  Building a physical portfolio
  4.  Building a portfolio website

If your goal is to land a textile design job as an in-house designer, then your textile portfolio will need to be both physical and must also exist on a website. If your goal is to freelance or land art licensing deals, then your portfolio needs to exist primarily on your website.

In this class, I provide textile portfolio examples that I used in real interviews that landed me my last two textile design jobs as well as other job offers from other companies. Having an amazing portfolio is essential to landing your dream career as a surface pattern designer or as a textile designer.
