It seems that I have become a serial competition entrant! My latest work has been a lot of fun, the brief, Entomology, ran by Textile Federation. Textile Federation is a creative platform enabling both emerging, and established print designers, to showcase their talent globally. A creative brief for each collection is given for designers to explore, and the winning designs will be printed onto scarves and sold in Topshop Oxford circus.
I entered two designs into the competition, the first I named Migrating Moths. This was made up of 2B tonal studies of moths, inspired by the idea of swarming insect flight paths, and moths to light. I also liked the idea that the pattern of the moths resembled a dandelion clock loosing its seeds in the breeze. I wanted to give it a night-time feel so selected a midnight blue colour palette.
