I’m really looking forward to this module, due to the fact that last year was great because we got to experiment with lots of new techniques I cant wait to see what else I’m going to learn this year. The area which I really enjoyed last year was the digital project, I never done much digital work before but it was something that I learned I was quite good at and enjoyed therefore I cant wait to develop it more in this new project. Furthermore I would like to do more printed textiles in this new project and combined it with digital.
I like that we are able to set our own brief to work for a certain company it makes it feel more like a live brief and therefore it will make me think about my work more commercially, analysing my target market more and hopefully making my final prints come out with a professional quality.
I have already started my initial research looking in to different market areas of fashion textiles, interior design and stationery/ paper-based industry. Some of my favourites have been, Paperchase, Scion, Liberty London and lelci London. I would like to create a collection of interior pieces or a set of stationery/paper pieces Im not sure yet. Furthermore I’m not really sure what I would like to base my collection around yet, at the moment I was thinking about looking in to nature or architecture but I’m not sure, maybe after looking at some trend forecasting sites like WGSN i may have more of a idea.
However overall I’m very excited to get starting on my self set brief and to see where it is going to take me.
