Make it in Design run a series of courses for the surface pattern community. They also have what they call Summer School and Winter School where you are given information on upcoming trends and then the participants create patterns on those trends. At the end of each course, they do a testimonial competition to win a place on an upcoming course. The above image was my submission for the Summer School 2017. The background is a pattern I created for the pure zen brief while the coloured writing was the name of each of the trends. The image below was created after Winter School 2018.
