Here’s my final round up of New Designers 2012 printed textiles and surface design talent. At the Glasgow School of Art Emily de Vale worked in 3D, embroidering laser cut bones onto fabric to create curious patterns.
Sylvie McGowan‘s display of peachy pink, mint and dusky geometric patterns (super popular colourways) was very appealing.
Inspired by microscopic structures, Rachel McIndoe created every kind of exotic texture possible.
A riot of colour from Laura Turquand Young at Heriot-Watt University.
At Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design textile designer and illustrator Claire Corstorphine favoured a fashion forward combination of lilacs with blues and peaches.
I was bound to home in on Amelia Wonders by Annie Mae Harris at UCA Rochester (though her own name is pretty wonderful too).
Daisy Eloise Hopwood had put together a great display to showcase her textile designs.
It was great to see Elisabeth Bostrom‘s astonishing hairy textiles, which we have already written about.
The University of Derby had an imaginative stand involving laser cut crowns.
At University of Leeds I liked these neon leaves by Louisa Heyworth.
At LCC Rebecca Dinnage‘s Ludicrious Prints mixed imagery from different times and places: polar bears roamed the streets of London in her playful papercut sculpture.
Delicate tree papercutting by Rosemma Hollis created intriguing shadows.
I liked the painterly retro feel of these bold boats on a print design by Lucy Jones.
A wonderful collar and pantaloon set by Maya Nije.
A stripy golden racoon lounging on a plate by Annita Sung.
There was some marvellous work on the LCC stand, which had been put together in an eclectic manner that echoed the walls of a large country house. See more from LCC surface designers on their tumblr here.
