How to build a brand in textile design

Rachael Taylor is making a name for herself with her quirky style of textile and surface design patterns. She not only loves what she does but also seeks many opportunities to raise her profile.

Rachael provides an insight into her career history and also highlights the importance of work placements whilst at university in order to forge contacts and build a portfolio. Francesca Shepherd, trainee solicitor at HowardKennedyFsi LLP, advises to have a discussion about your IP rights before starting a placement in order to avoid a later dispute.
