A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the previous competition Mother's Day Florals, we received over 550 entries. We have started judging the entries and the winner and runners up will be announced shortly.
Ailsa was chosen as a runner up in the Black and White Pattern competition, 2014. Tigerprint asked Ailsa to share more of her work with us to showcase in the Competition Spotlight.
Ailsa is currently in her third year at Manchester School of Art studying Textiles In Practice. She specialise in printed textiles, and uses a mixture of screen print and digital techniques to create and print her designs.
Ailsa's designs are often inspired by natural form and have quite an organic feel about them, however she has started a new collection inspired by brutalist and modernist architecture, which has much more of a graphic and bolder feel to it.
She is currently preparing her final collection to be printed for the degree show, which will be exhibited in the brand new Benzie Building at Manchester Metropolitan University from June 14th until June 25th 2014. Examples of students work and more information can be found here.
The Ride is a visually striking bike journal filled with personal stories about the passion of riding and how bikes change people's lives. Not only do the honest and incredibly well written stories resonate with readers, but the art, illustrations and photography have also helped The Ride to stand out from all other magazines, giving it a stunningly individual style. The Ride is about bikes, and why people love them - they're not in it for the money. Every time they sell a copy, they want to give something back to the world of cycling and for this reason they donate all profits from the magazine to charity.
With New Designers not too far around the corner, we're getting stuck in to a new exciting project that will be a treat for the eyes and hopefully, will give you a better idea of what it's like for us here at the Tigerprint studio!
