Today our Colour Find is courtesy of the very lovely Candy Joyce who joined us on placement last month.
Taking place at the Swansea Grand Theatre from the 28th-31st May 2012, the Surface Pattern Design Show brings together thirty four final-year students to create an exciting and diverse exhibition, divided into three disciplines: Contemporary Applied Arts Practice, Textiles for Fashion and Textiles for Interiors.
Materials used include acrylic, metal, wire, glass, porcelain, paper, wood, leather and an impressive range of natural and synthetic fabrics.
The work on show is ambitious, with a wide range of outcomes from drawing and painting to ceramics, photography and printmaking.
The title of the exhibition is ‘Spectrum’, suggesting colour, diversity, breadth and variety.
The De Montfort Art and Design Degree Show celebrates the talent and innovative work of the final year art and design students. The exhibition showcases exciting creations by the next generation of artists and designers across all of the art and design courses and attracts over 4000 visitors including potential employers.

Jessica Wilde - Winner of Tigerprint & SDC Colour Competition
A few weeks ago we were delighted to attend the Society of Dyers and Colourists Celebration Dinner here in Bradford. We were kindly asked to display the winner and runners up designs from the Colour Competition which was held earlier this year.
It was such a lovely evening which saw Rebecca Diggle from Nottingham Trent University crowned the UK finalist of the SDC annual international competition. Rebecca is a Decorative Arts student and will fly out to Mumbai later this year for the final of the competition.
In addition Jessica Wilde who was our Colour Competition winner earlier this year was presented with a goodie bag, certificate and beautiful flowers in a special presentation at the dinner. This was a wonderful end to the two week placement which Jessica completed here at Tigerprint.
Congratulations to both Jessica and Rebecca and we wish Rebecca the best of luck with the final in November.
Gavin Rutherford is an Illustration graduate, coffee addict and aspiring pattern designer currently based in Edinburgh. Since leaving university, Gavin has been building up an extensive portfolio of intricate pattern designs and one-off prints.
His work is inspired by a variety of sources, from floral motifs and insects, to shells, crystalline shapes and household objects, leading to quite an eclectic portfolio of designs. His style itself is based on a simple love of delicate pen work and decorative detail. He was recently awarded a pattern scholarship by Rachael Taylor and after studying her online course, looks forward to carving out a career in the surface design industry.
