T-Shirt Statement Print
One of my statement prints on a t-shirt.
A highly motivated artist and designer, always enthusiastic about colour and fun prints.
My work has developed throughout the years, as I learnt how to create successful compositions, discovered the power of scale and variety and of course, how to create a colour palette. Always looking to the fun side of textiles, bright and bold colours can often be seen in my collections, I just love how they spark joy. I enjoy every aspect of creating collection, I love drawing and tapping into my fine art side. At the same importance, the development is really gratifying, and I feel I have very good digital skills built over the years. I really see myself being on the creative side of the textiles industry, drawing and designing. In my career, I aim to create beautiful, bold prints that are unique, be it for fashion or for interiors.
Final year project
It's a Colourful Life
Design and Technology Clarke Award, awarded by my school in sixth form for excellence in design.
Work chosen to be presented at Mall Galleries, my final A-level art piece shown in London.
My foundation diploma work shown in the University's art brochure.
My placement was affected by Covid-19, so I was unable to complete it, however, I was awarded a prestigious summer placement with H&M in Stockholm. I wanted to include this as I achieved this from a 12-week live project with the company and got chosen from a large number of applicants after passing the project and interview stage. I feel it is relevant and shows how hard I worked.
The live project taught me how to work towards a commercial brief, and the challenge of making prints that will be suited to a large audience and sellable. With feedback halfway through the project, I took any criticisms and learnt from them, I got a glimpse into how a collection is created in the industry.
For five summers during secondary school, I worked as an assistant designer for the product design company Thumbs Up!.
I earned many valuable transferable skills such as how to professionally research, create artwork and show preparations. I learnt how to work in a team environment and understood the professional world of the design industry. Specifically, design-wise, I was able to acquire the knowledge of making a product, from it's inception to packaging to presenting the product online.
