When we created the original Mini Collection Challenge on Instagram last spring we had no idea just how impactful it would be, and how empowered it would leave so many feeling.

The mindset shift of focusing on 3 coordinating patterns
(1 Hero, 1 Blender, and 1 Coordinate) rather than 12+ was huge!

It allowed people to get past the overwhelm of creating a collection and
It showed them that in just a few days they could have a cohesive mini-collection that was portfolio ready and able to be pitched to potential clients.
The reality is, outside of the fabric industry, most companies are buying artwork in one-off prints, duos, trios, or picking a variety of your artwork and building a
collection of their own.


The creative briefs have been an invaluable tool for adding to my portfolio. They are so well thought out and jam packed with information, insight and actionable steps. After reading through the first brief and brainstorming ideas, I was inspired to explore the theme a little bit deeper and ended up creating new artwork that I would have never considered making had it not been for this guidance. So thankful to Ryann and Fleur for this great resource!


The Briefs are so detailed, informative, organised & beautiful!! Thank you so much for putting these together!!!


This first monthly brief has already given me so much focus and direction! Not only have I created a cohesive collection in record time, this brief also serves as an industry guide on when the best times are to pitch certain collection themes, ie holiday, seasonal. I've become so much more productive and consistent. I'm almost ready to start pitching now and cannot wait to for the next brief! If you're on the fence, just do it.


A great amount of detail and inspiration. They make you feel like you are producing artwork for an art director and put you in the right frame of mind to start researching and creating.


I am so excited I have joined the monthly creative briefs to keep me on track this year with exactly what I need to be doing and when! The first brief dropped giving plenty of lead time to develop a collection and pitch it ahead of the game and I can't wait to get stuck in!


The brief gives a lot of structure and with the theme already set in place, I notice that I start drawing and designing much quicker. It also feels good to know that when I just follow the briefs, I'll have a well thought out & well-rounded portfolio.


I love Creative Studio Collective's Portfolio Building Briefs!! Ryann and Fleur have put so much good stuff in them! They have done extensive research and have created incredibly in- depth themes for every month. The Briefs are so inspiring: both visually with mood boards and color palettes and verbally with words that not only give you motif ideas but also emotions and a vibe for the month. Of course they have also included helpful technical information and created community support for all of us. My favorite part about the Creative Briefs is having a place for my creativity to start every month!


LOVE your design briefs!! I love how far out you suggest to create our motifs/designs. I was always doing things last minute and missed the window on several holidays. Your briefs have helped me to prepare for the upcoming holidays/seasons. The also give me lots of design ideas and I love your color palettes.


The creative brief I received for Fall was so thorough and very professional in layout and content. Themes, colours, ideas, pitching time frames,, check list etc are all provided, I could not fault this brief. I would highly recommend anyone who’s sitting on the fence to sign up now.
