It will help you highlight what is individual and unique about your students and their design talents.
“As a fashion brand we don't exist in a vacuum . This motif work has shown that understanding trends is not necessarily to follow them blindly.” (Paul Smith)
“These tools could really help us engage our minds much quicker, and generate more ideas relevant to the consumer.” (Maxmara)
“This has really helped to recognise trends and how to push them further into something more unexpected, to develop and create more sophisticated designs and products.” (H&M)
“It prompts designers to think in a different way. We can get to creative ideas sooner, making designers think differently and challenging commercial ideas.” (Selfridges)
