...creating visually exciting digital prints

Success!

At the private viewing of our degree show, I won two of the awards which was very exciting.

Digetex, A Manchester based designer, printer and manufacturer of digitally printed fabrics and wallpapers, awarded me their Printed Innovation Award 2011. I have also been offered work experience with them for the summer....http://blog.digetexhome.com/2011/06/20/mmu-students-scoop-top-prizes-digetex-awards-2011/

Secondly, I was awarded 1st prize for the design brief set by Diane Harrison Designs, a design studio producing inspiring and relevant surface design for textiles, wallcoverings, rugs, stationery and apparel. This news was overwhelming.

Along with these two awards, my work was spotted by the Manchester Craft and Design Centre....http://www.craftanddesign.com/about/spotted

Designs printed onto fabric so far...









Photographed Work

I find that photographing work definitely helps you to feel better if you begin to doubt the amount you've done!
These are some of the designs that I have prepared for my design portfolio. Each sheet has the entire design on it and an example of the scale it would be at if it was on fabric.

These are a few favourites...

Inspiration for Final Project

In the last few years I have found a new love for Photography and for my final year project, I wanted to challenge myself and incorporate Photography into my design work.
