Michelle Fifis of Pattern Observer has just released a survey for designers, agents/reps, and buyers in the surface pattern design industry. With the 2013 Pattern Industry Survey, Michelle hopes to answer the kinds of questions she receives on a regular basis about the often elusive details of our trade. The information collected will include particulars on designer income, pattern pricing, where new artists can be found, the most commonly used marketing techniques, and much more.
Once gleaned, the resulting data will be assembled into a report and sent to all survey participants, as well as presented to them in an exclusive webinar. There is no doubt that this knowledge will be an invaluable resource for making informed business decisions, whether you are on the buying or selling end of the business. Consider spending a little time to take the survey—the return on your investment will be well worth it! (You have until June 30th.)
