Students Pitch T-shirt Designs to a Panel of Design Experts
As part of our Retail Workshops offered in partnership with The Baitshop, each student prepared and practiced a "pitch" with Anne (one of our teaching interns) before presenting their own brand and proposed T-shirt designs to a panel of design experts. Joey from Freedom Fighter joined us today to give feedback from a street wear/skateboard industry perspective and also showed students how to use a "pop-up-shop" to promote their own products.
