As part of the 1st Year’s Design Development Module they have to complete two short Project Briefs each lasting 6 weeks. It is designed to get the students to learn about the Design Process in Fashion & Interior Textile Design and also get them working with each other. Collaborating.
We are keen on Collaboration here at Hereford College of Arts, we believe it is important that students learn how to work with each other, how to constructively critique each other’s work and in turn learn how to effectively evaluate their own work and others.
The Interior Project got the students working in small groups, three in total on a Brief that what given to them as if they were working in a Textile Design studio. They were given a Mood Board with colour, imagery and keywords. From this they had to develop their own Mood Board as a group and individually, and from this each design a small collection of designs that would work with other’s in their groups as an overall collection to present professionally. This required the student collectively selecting source imagery and colour palettes so that there were common themes throughout the work yet retaining each person’s design handwriting.
The final collections were sophisticated and well put together with a range of styles and scales which met with the brief for an Interior Collection. Alongside their research, drawing, development and final designs the students had to complete in-depth research in to Interior Textile design collections.
Well done all of you! What a superb project, you have all come so far in such a short space of time and it makes for a really exciting 2nd year!
