Surface Pattern Design Consulting


Business Coaching & Surface Pattern Design Consulting 

Welcome to my Business Coaching program designed specifically for surface pattern designers. As an industry expert, I understand the unique challenges and opportunities that arise in this field. My goal is to provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to succeed in your career as a surface pattern designer.

My coaching program is focused on helping you develop a strong business foundation and grow your brand in the competitive market. I believe that a successful surface pattern designer not only creates beautiful designs but also understands the business side of the industry.

During our coaching sessions, we can cover a wide range of topics that are essential for your business growth. Topics include:

  • Branding and Marketing: Building a strong brand identity and effectively marketing your designs is key to attracting clients and customers. We will help you develop a compelling brand story, create a professional portfolio, and implement marketing strategies to promote your work.
  • Product Development: Developing a diverse range of products is essential for expanding your business. We will assist you in exploring different product options that fit your illustration style(s), and guide you in the process of bringing your designs to life through manufacturing, art licensing, and print-on-demand services. 
  • Market Research: Understanding the current trends and demands in the surface pattern design industry is crucial. We will guide you in conducting effective market research to identify your target audience and create designs that resonate with them.
  • Pricing and Negotiation: Determining the right pricing for your designs and negotiating contracts with clients can be challenging. We will provide you with pricing strategies and negotiation techniques to ensure that you are compensated fairly for your work.
  • Legal and Copyright: Protecting your intellectual property is crucial in the surface pattern design industry. We will educate you on copyright laws, licensing agreements, and other legal considerations to safeguard your designs.
  • Business Management: Managing the financial and administrative aspects of your business is essential for long-term success. We will guide you in setting up efficient systems for invoicing, inventory management, and overall business organization.
