Degree ShowPosted: June 1, 2015
Today we had a look round the 3rd years’ exhibition and I was so impressed with what I saw.
This work was one of my favourites and was one of the two I chose to write my personal critique on.
Her name is Vanessa Randell and I loved her illustrations of nocturnal woodland animals. Her ideas were not something that I had seen anywhere before and I liked the concept of having glow in the dark stitched aspects in a duvet set for a child who is afraid of the dark. I also think it was really successful that she has used a colour scheme which goes away from the conventional pastels and pinks/blues which are normally seen in products for children.
This was my other favourite display and the other one I wrote my critique for. She had focused on nature, the environment and encouraging children to play outside. I loved her display and the props and furniture she used, it was simple and therefore didn’t take the attention away from her products.
This was the work of Elen Angharad Davie and she had also designed products for children. Her patterns were very sweet and I loved her colour scheme.
I loved the colour scheme this student used.
This one really stood out to me because it was so different to all of the others, with a very surreal aspect.
This was the first display I saw when I walked into the room and I loved the teepee. All of these patterns were pretty, pastel colours and gave a sort of watercolour look.
Because childrens’ products/interiors are what I am interested at the moment, I was really happy to see so many displays for it. Looking through this exhibition has make me both apprehensive and excited for the next 2 years.
