"“What I loved about the courses (and the Facebook group) is the atmosphere, the positive vibes you transmit. I assume you work hard, the market is very demanding, however you make everything seem so easy and beautiful.
You give wings to creativity. Even when I am tired and I watch one of your videos or have a look on your posts, I feel recharged. It is incredible, I wish you to keep on like this, because what/how you do it, is amazing!!! and thank you for opening the door to such wonderful worlds!!!!”
“I really love the courses offered here.
Not only have I developed knowledge of the surface design industry but my drawing skills have developed & changed as well.
The videos are simple, easy to follow & there's lots of great support in the Facebook group too!”
"Currently binging on the new Photoshop courses:
1. Wow! you ladies are so talented!
2. Wow! I slapped my forehead several times for not knowing some basic simple tool options.
3. Wow! I learned a LOT of new techniques that I can't wait to try.
Thank you for sharing these courses. I feel like they are the cherry on top of everything I've learned so far. "

Longina Phillips Designs has almost 30 years of experience in the textile design industry and is Australia’s leading print design studio. So we know what we’re talking about! We’re known for our creativity and forward-thinking designs, which both predict our customers’ needs and inspire future collections.
We produce designs using a range of techniques, with a strong focus on a hand-rendered aesthetic. Our designs are sold internationally to customers from the swim, apparel and homewares industries, and include Seafolly, Zara, Givenchy, Ralph Lauren and Prabal Gurung.
The Print School was designed by us as a way of giving back to and engaging with the awesome creative community we’re part of. Both our customers and Instagram followers (you guys rock) expressed an interest in learning creative skills from our industry leading designers, and so The Print School was born. We’ve been offering Illustration and Watercolour classes in our Sydney studio, taught by our very own designers, for over 2 years now.
But this just wasn’t enough. Our international audience stuck up their hands and said “What about us?” And we said “Hold up guys. We’ve got you.” So after teaming up with film makers The Honest Jones and a truly mammoth effort, we’re so proud to launch these online video classes at The Print School.
