Guest blog post from Young Creative Ellis, aged 19

For the last few weeks we’ve been kept busy every Sunday developing and learning new design skills and on Sunday 13 March we sold our t-shirts and tote bags from our pop-up shop at Portobello Green Market.  Sales were a little slow at first but business soon picked up!  All of the Young Creatives got involved, engaging with customers, managing money or running the stall.  I really enjoyed the project and the opportunity to learn how to screen and vinyl print, being creative and developing our enterprise skills with other young creatives.  Selling our designs was a great way to end this project.  Feedback from market-goers was really encouraging, so I’d love to come back and do it all over again!

Watch the video below to see what the Young Creatives got up to:

Here is what some of the other Young Creatives had to say:

“I loved this course! We got to design our own product, all very professionally and all great fun!” Louis, Young Creative.

“I liked that we could create our own designs and do what whatever we want with it and then make it into an actual product that people buy and use.” Elliot, Young Creative.

“I really enjoyed working with the Design Museum to create our own t-shirts with our own ideas,” Young Creative.

Thanks to the Design Museum for running such a fun course!
