So excited to find out that I have been shortlisted in the #makeitindesign Printsource competition. The competition was part of the Ultimate Portfolio Builder course I enrolled in last year and the top eight shortlisted entries have been selected by Rachael Taylor, Printsource producer Massimo Lacoboni and the Make it in Design Team.  The brief was to design patterns for a dream client - in my case I chose the gift market and as I'd really love to see my patterns on stationery, journals, gift wrap etc

So I'm now in with a chance to win a booth at Printsource and $1000 towards travel/costs to exhibit in New York this August! The winner is announced next week - the competition is extremely tough and I'm up against some really strong work. Check out the the final 8 at

Fingers crossed!
