Building a surface design business is tough.

It's competitive and time-consuming. And if you're creative, it might not come naturally to view things from a business perspective. 

Like many of our students you might question how to make a fulltime wage out of design. Or wonder if your work is even good enough to monetise on a global scale.

The truth is, if you don’t learn the actual steps needed to run a profitable business, your #sidehustle will remain just that, on the side. 


Here at Longina Phillips Designs we’re passionate about helping designers of all levels demystify the business side of design and gain much-needed confidence, whilst fast-tracking your design career.    

If you’re ready to turn your love of design into a successful business, then let us show you the exact steps that we use to this day. 

For the first time ever...

We’ll hold your hand and take you inside the fabulous world of the Longina Phillips Design studio where we share with you the insider success secrets that we’ve never shared before.

The Comprehensive Business Builder for Surface Designers will give you clarity and focus by teaching the exact steps needed to build a successful business, so you’re not wasting time on unproductive tasks. 

This is unlike every other surface design course out there.  It will help you go from a struggling and stressed out hobbyist to a confident creative entrepreneur, using the exact strategies that have made LPD one of the longest-running design studios in the world.

Combined with the insider knowledge of one of the most trusted and experienced design studios in the world, to help you monetise quickly and confidently. 

Let us show you what’s waiting for you when you join the Comprehensive Business Builder for Surface Designers.

There are 5 business-building modules with a total of

  • 27 videos
  • an accompanying workbook for each lesson. 
  • Available on our custom-built online platform, accessible 24/7 from a phone or a desktop.
  • Each video is under 20 minutes - easy to fit around your existing commitments. 

Ok, so how much is my investment?

Here’s the thing, we’ve had people asking us for YEARS to teach them exactly what makes LPD the Industry leaders for 30 years, and how we’ve been able to work with your favourite brands like Givenchy, Zara and Ralph Lauren.

To be honest we’ve been doubtful about whether we really want to share this information at all.  After all, it's the exact processes that we still use to this very day.

But what we love most, is helping the next generation of designers to live out their design dream. So we’ve decided to share this previously money-can’t-buy info at a price that we hope that most designers will be able to afford, without diminishing our own 30 years of hard work.

So if you’re reading this page right now, it means you have access to this special one-time-only price.  As this is the first time we’re running it, we’ve made the price as affordable as we can.

This is the kind of investment that will reward you for years to come as you build your own successful design business.

"I had been struggling to find this information, so I was delighted when the Longina Phillips Print School course was released, and it didn’t disappoint. The course was comprehensive and included lots of insider tips that just aren’t available anywhere else. Plus, having the hard copy course guide as well as the videos was great, because after watching the video I can now mostly just use my printed guide when I’m not sure how to do something. But I think the best thing has been the exclusive member only Facebook group where I can get expert answers on any technical questions that crop up from time to time. The course has definitely expanded my skills and made me a better surface pattern designer." Julie Bunyard, Tasmania

"This is a rare opportunity that allowed me to peek over the shoulder of some of the ultra talented Longina Phillips Studio designers. Learning their workflow has been a true levelling up of skills for me."  Kelly Lahl, Wiscounsin, USA

Rebecca Oaks

"Before I started using the courses I was very much winging it. Now I feel like I can create what I have in my mind rather than being limited to what I can actually achieve. I have confidence and clarity when designing."

Maria Hopgood

​​"There has been so little online which trains textile designers for industry, particularly for freelancers. It is such a positive move for your company to make the Courses it does come across really professional and you have thought of all the detail of different steps."


"The instructors were fantastic- so supportive, welcoming, helpful and kind."




"One thing as a designer you should do is never stop learning!  I am a professional freelancer, but i purchased the LPD training videos as i wanted to learn and refine my skills.  The courses at LPD are the best, you will not find better out there."
