Designer and Course Creator Anna Brewin

Hi, I’m Anna. I did my degree in Textile Design at the University of Huddersfield in Yorkshire, UK, and have expanded my work into Graphics and Surface Pattern. Having moved from designing on paper to the digital space, there are lots of things I've discovered and found out along the way that has explained why things have and haven't worked. I have consolidated all this learning into this short course, to enable you to know how to navigate the digital space and not make irreversible mistakes.
