Georgia Stone

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.
