Get Stuff Made has supported hundreds of people with their design, development and manufacture journeys. Over the years, we’ve found there's one thing that can make or break a new brand.
The big secret: Plan, research and think about every single design detail before you start ordering samples. Now this may seem obvious, but without experience in the industry or specific training, it's easy not to know what you don't know.
How? On this course, we teach you how to effectively plan & research your brand, your launch plan & designs. With our industry standard templates we show you how to create brand boards & design briefs that can be reused time and again as your brand grows.
Why? Once you start ordering Tech Packs and samples, you want to be clear in your requests to avoid wasting time and money. We cover these first crucial steps in detail over 6 modules to make sure you're set up for success moving forward.
The first two modules focus on creating your brand story, making decisions that heavily impact your products and launch plan.
We will create Brand Boards, Colour Boards, Brand Mission & Key Words. Having confidence in your business and what it stands for will make all design & manufacture decisions much easier later on in the journey.
It's easy to forget you have to budget for development and production costs for each style you want to launch. Creating a professional range plan based on various factors ensures you are spend money on the right products at the right time.
It's time to start thinking about your garment or accessory designs! We talk about the best ways to complete effective research, and then how to move forward with what you've found.
Without a fashion degree or experience in the industry, we talk through the best ways to understand the materials, trims and finishes you have in mind.
Using our Get Stuff Made template, the aim of this final module is to build detailed Design Briefs for each of your launch styles. Feel confident requesting Tech Packs or samples knowing you can provide details on everything, from fit, materials, trims, colours & packaging. You've got this!
