Do you often struggle with finding inspiration even you have the skills and knowledge? Inspiration is not a feeling we can summon at will. However, you can ignite your passion to create by seeing themes that connect with your resonant aesthetic principles. Breathe life into your jewellery designs with themes and stories that speak. Identify a unique aesthetic that defines your collections, designs & creations with professional guidance through eight universal patterns of beauty. Explore and predict future colour and theme trends in fashion and jewellery.
This training will help you identify and record the design patterns that resonate with you and translate them into desirable jewellery creations! This is not an academic lecture series... it is a truly interactive workshop where you will surprise yourself with your personal discoveries!
What You Will Learn
Understand and connect with your own archetype or resonant combination of archetypes. Aesthetic archetypes are common combinations or patterns of visual elements that can evoke certain feelings or thoughts from different people. Each archetype has its own group of visual elements, characteristics, and appeals to different groups of individuals. Understanding and utilising these in your design process can help focus on your target market.
Explore in-depth design language and the various standard visual elements that make up a good design. By using the right design language to describe your ideas and designs, you can increase the effectiveness of sales and manufacturing conversations.
Learn about creative 'flow state' and how you can use archetypes to enter your flow state that is consistent with your brand. Flow can enhance your performance in both productivity and creativity. With flow you get better results faster, and at the same time accelerate your learning and skill development!
Apply Flow To Sales
Use this new knowledge to help customers connect with your designs and increase conversions & repeat sales. Not only you can understand your customers’ taste and preference faster, but you can also communicate with them better using the vocabulary of archetypes and flow.
