Studying with IDI has been both challenging and rewarding. Throughout my studies, I have explored different areas of illustration from book cover designs, poster concepts, exhibition displays, editorial illustrations and surface pattern designs. The latter was an area that I had never explored before, nor even really considered.

Through the process of working on some self-initiated briefs, I had potentially discovered a new direction for my career path. I was developing an interest in designing textiles.

With the help of IDI, at the end of my studies, I believe I have begun a journey of building a foundation where I can continue to establish my brand and style in surface pattern design.

If I continue to put in the effort and discipline that it will take to create some rewarding textile patterns and designs, who knows what might be around the corner!
