Build Your Artist Brand: Create a Designer Product Range from Your Artwork

Are you a visual artist or designer looking to increase your profile and your opportunities to make money? This course shows you how to digitise your artwork and create prints, products and designer goodies. This course is great for artists looking to monetise their work and expand their offerings into the areas of designer merchandise, homewares and apparel.

Description

Being an artist or a designer is great fun. And of course, it’s great when you develop a name for yourself and your particular style starts to become recognisable. But how do you start to take things to the next level and get your designs across commercial products? How can you create a range of designer goodies to sell at markets, to retailers, and to help build your online store?

Please bring digital photographs of finished artworks or high resolution digital graphic artwork files on a USB stick in .ai, .eps or .pdf format.  Imagery must be of your own creative work.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:

  • Articulate your own creative and business goals when it comes to building your artist or designer brand
  • Build your own product range using your own artwork in digital format
  • Adapt and re-purpose your own designs to create a wider range of products
  • Develop your own marketing plan to sell your product range
