Congratulations to Katie Whitton from Norwich University of the
Tigerprint partners with New Designers each year to offer an award to a rising star for their design talent. This year the judging panel, made up of the Creative Director, Studio Managers and the Arts Development Manager, spent several hours walking around show before debating their winner in the judges chambers before coming to a decision.
After some time, they announced Katie Whitton from Norwich University of the
Arts as their award winner. Katie has been awarded with a £500 cash prize and a 6 month paid placement across our Bradford and London Studios.
The judges comments: “A contrast of scale and
detail, Katie’s work expresses a true gift and shows confidence on combining
marks, gestures and colour. She will be a great addition to our studios”
Katie's comments: “I am really pleased to have
won this award, there is so much brilliant work here. Tigerprint is a company I
have admired for a while so I can’t wait for my time in the studios.”
Katie spent some time with us on our stand at New Designers and we are looking forward to seeing her later in the year.
This month we are
taking a break from pattern design and asking you to focus on Photographic Blanks.
We've already had lots of great entries but you have until Monday 3rd
June to get snapping away and enter. Check out the full brief and the
latest entries over here.
It was such a lovely evening which saw RebeccaDiggle 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.
We had a great morning judging all the Lovely Days entries and there was such a wide variety of styles demonstrated which made it all the more trickier to select our winner.
However we finally came to a decision today that our overall winner is Faith with the entry above which we all fell in love with. It is beautifully executed with a stunning colour palette and a lovely fresh style which would certainly compliment our range.
A simply stunning entry by RachelAmy which could be used for a variety of occasions and products.
