Take some time to read the brief and fully understand what it is we're looking for. Think about the key words or phrases, the genre and who the customer and recipient are.
This month the focus is on floral patterns for wrap, taking inspiration from spring / summer 2016 trends, colours and styles.
The pattern can be a repeat or placement. Play around with the scale, layout and layers within your design. If you are submitting all 5 designs make sure they are all doing a different job, whilst showing off your style.
Visit Marks and Spencer online or one of their many stores to discover what's already in our range. Remember we are always on the look out for new styles so think about your take on things and how it can be applied.
