Course description

Motif Map Workshop for Teachers

Are you preparing students for roles in the creative industries?

Are you getting them ready to shake up the future of design and be the next generation to challenge the visual world?

If so, then join this workshop specifically developed to innovate your approach to teaching design.

This workshop presents you with new trend tools that will fundamentally change your thinking about brand, design, motif and image.

The research from this workshop has already been shared with industry for several years, attracting brands from Paul Smith to Primark, from Selfridges to Sainsbury, and from Hermes to H&M.

During the workshop you will:

  • learn about new techniques and fresh ways of responding to trend
  • explore alternative perspectives on image and its application
  • develop working practices to fast-track your students design confidence and creative courage
  • challenge concepts of trend and authenticity
  • complete a range of investigative tasks that you can apply to your teaching in the future.

What will I gain?

The knowledge you gain on the workshop will help your students build a competitive edge early and claim their personal aesthetic advantage now.

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)
