Nicole's Classes Portfolio Production Guide I am frequently asked by my Illustrator and Photoshop students how to go about getting clients once they feel comfortable as graphic designers and photo editors. A major part of recruiting clients is the way you choose to present your design work. It isn't just about how good your designs are, but how well you show them off.
We're back for the second week in a row with more great student work to share! This time it's from our beginning graphic design class Illustrator 101. While we hope to relaunch a class that specifically teachers more advanced and intricate patterns in the near future, we're so excited that our recently revamped Illustrator 101 class with Holly Hucklesby teaches pattern making. So without further ado, here are some recent amazing student pattern designs! Our first set of designs was created by student Sofia Arnaboldi. She created a pattern as part of a logo/branding set that is just too cute. We love her pastel color choices and her use of the on-trend arrow design. Great work! Nicole's Classes Student Work
DSC_3865 I've recently had the chance to collaborate with some floral designers and a flower farmer in England. It's so inspiring to work with other designers, especially when they are growing their own product! Here are a few of my recent floral designs in collaboration with Manor Farm Cottage Flowers, Bath Flowers, and stylist Jenn Elliott Blake.
We know it's been a while since we showcased student work, but it isn't because they haven't been consistently cranking out amazing stuff. So bear with us while we do a little catch up from the last few months of our Floral Arranging 101 class: Our first piece is from student Elizabeth Romeril who was enrolled in our May session. She achieved a great loose shape for her English garden arrangement and we love her bright floral choices. Elizabeth said this about her Nicole's Classes experience: "I have loved the class! I have learned so much. I would say my biggest challenge has been that in rural New England it's harder to find the "right" flowers to use for the arrangements. With week two, I lucked out by being on vacation, and finding a larger variety of flowers, along with some greens out of the yard." So glad you loved the class Elizabeth!
