The Ultimate Portfolio Builder winner revealed!

I am happy to announce that Tracy Miller has won a FREE place on The Ultimate Portfolio Builder course from Make it in Design worth $875 (£579)! Tracy, please get in touch!

The Make it in Design team were delighted to read so many fabulous entries from around the world, but it was Tracy’s shear passion, determination and commitment to design that came across in her entry that earned her the free place. 

Tracy’s winning entry:

“The next level, that breakout moment, the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to really live out my potential as a surface art designer are always just out of reach. And yet my commitment and love of design keeps me plugging away at it even when it seems to lead nowhere. Days go by without a sale, and the rent can be in danger of not getting paid. But I sit in this chair, Illustrator open in front of me and I design. Learn new skills. Make new goals. Answer art calls. Never give up. I'm a designer for life!”

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who took the time and effort to enter this competition, we’re sorry that we couldn’t make you all winners! 

Tracy will be joining a community of advanced designers on The Ultimate Portfolio Builder seven-week professional surface pattern design course.
