Following on from my first review of printed textiles and surface design graduates at New Designers 2012, here’s my second pick of the student work. At Cleveland College of Art and Design bright geometric patterns by Phillippa Copping reigned supreme. I wasn’t surprised to learn that she has interned with Zandra Rhodes, whose influence was clear.
Robyn Taylor had fun with embroidered fashion illustrations.
Crazy robots with 3D embellishment sprung out of graph paper in these interactive wallpaper designs for children by Holly Stevens.
At Edinburgh College of Art Tori Arrighi mixed fractal patterns with bold swipes of bright colour.
Gillian Boyd is an acoustic textile designer who designers decorative panels for maximum sound absorption.
At University of Bolton Danielle Lunn embroidered curious patterns that looked like sea creatures created in the style of Indian folk art.
Emma Mcvan mixed photorealist imagery with abstract design to great effect.
The fabulously named Velvet Jade mixed vibrant geometrics with 3D rosettes.
At UCLAN oversized squirrel and deer designs were attracting a lot of attention on Viktoriya Zarvanska‘s very busy stand.
The English Country Garden Collection by Jane Bridges featured some beautiful modern acidic and plum colour combinations.
At Northbrook College in Sussex Netanya Barber mixed photo real birds and flowers with intricate wirework patterns.
At the Arts Uni College in Bournemouth Melody Ross went wild with neon laser cut acrylic for interiors products.
At Swansea Metropolitan layered stencil designs by Alice Skipp were applied with great joy across plates, tea cosies, teatowels.
Retro inspired upholstery by Sam Fenn-Johnston was showcased on old fashioned style arm chairs in the One Year On section.
