New Designers

Another year has passed and it is New Designers again.  I find it hard to believe it has been five years since I was exhibiting there myself.  I love to go and have a look at the work of the new graduates, when you work on your own it's very easy to be in a creative bubble.  I have taken some photos of some of my new graduates favourites this year.

First is the work of Rachel Macleod, I really liked the costal theme of her work.  I am interested in print, so usually head to the surface print designers first.

The next body of work that stood out for me was designer Abby Black, her work has a funky retro theme that worked really well with her sample products, Abby's display of her work was lovely
something I always struggle with.  

One Year on was as good as ever.  As always it is interesting to see how graduates work has changed and matured in a year.  As a textile artist the artist who stood out for me was the fantastic work of Lauren Scott.  She creates three dimensional sculptures using traditional textile and ceramic techniques. lauren takes her inspiration from the irish countryside where she lives. Her quirky animals are full of personality and character and are made form recycled materials.

Other graduates work I really like were, Jade Holly, Sky Procter, Natasha Lucy Storer, Rebecca Louise, Judy Scott, Benidia Wibisono, Laura Moscrop, Liz Shuter, Emma Grace Dugdale, Jenny Collicott and Ginni Jones-Mansueto good luck to them all and I be following there sucesses.
