Hi, my name is Georgia and my practise is all about surface pattern design! The main focus of my work is on shape and collage, and it always involves bright colours. I always start by drawing with collage – using coloured card, newspaper and magazine cuttings and scraps of different papers. I then use these to start designing patterns using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I usually do all of my pattern designs digitally, but over the last unit of the course I have really found a love for screen printing. It has been a great way for me to translate my drawings into designs and is effectively like making a large printed collage. I enjoy making shape and colour overlap to find new shape, and this has been fun to explore using screens and procion dyes. I wanted to bring my prints to life and used the large scale shapes to emphasise the playfulness of my designs.
